Abstract:

"Punk Diary is a day-by-day account of exactly how this historic and mythologized era came to pass. Here's all the data, important and trivial, presented to you just as it unfolded through an astounding 13 years. The early '70s were a dreary time for music. The latest thing seemed to be introspective singer-songwriters who poured their souls into convoluted lyrics and strummy-strummy noodling, or the ponderous, overproduced hogwash of Queen, Genesis, Yes, and their ilk. There was nothing that average kids could hope to identify with; they couldn't participate. What was needed was to roll back the clock to the mid '60s, when garage bands could plunk out a few raw chords and produce a rattle that would send parents running for their earplugs. By the time 1975 came around, the stage was not only set for a revolution in music, the players were already in the wings, warming up."--Jacket.
