About the Author

Pete Dale is renowned in the punk underground for his involvement in the Slampt Underground Organisation and groups such as Pussycat Trash, Milky Wimpshake and Red Monkey. His recent PhD research at Newcastle University explored the politics of punk. He taught music in a Gateshead secondary school for many years. He is currently Popular Music Fellow at Oxford Brookes University, UK.


This is a history which deserves, indeed needs, to be told. That Dale has chosen to attempt to make sense of a subject so diverse and self-contradictory as this is laudable. If the anarcho-punk tenet 'there is no authority but yourself' is to be followed, then he has admirably succeeded in proving his point - 'le punk est mort, vive le punk'. Penny Rimbaud, former member of Crass 'A long-needed study... promise[s] to become central to current research in the area of punk rock.' North American British Music Studies Association Newsletter
