Perfect Youth
By

Rating
A forgotten musical and cultural history of drunks and miscreants, future country stars and political strategists Perfect Youth is the story of the birth of Canadian punk, a transformative cultural force that reared its head across the country at the end of the 1970s. Bands like D.O.A., the Subhumans, the Viletones, and Teenage Head -- alongside lesser-known regional acts from all over Canada -- reshaped a dull musical landscape, injecting new energy and new sounds into halls, bars, and record stores from Victoria to St. John's. Reaching beyond the realm of standard band biographies, Sutherland unearths a detailed historical context to offer an idea of how the advent of punk reshaped the culture of cities across Canada, speeding along the creation of alternative means of cultural production, consumption, and distribution.

Reviews

""Perfect Youth" "effectively imparts a sense of agency to local communities, and easily demonstrates that punk was more than an imported phenomenon. . . . Sutherland colourfully illustrates how, when, and where Canadian bands contributed to punk's early development." --"BC Studies"
