A detailed and definitive history of British punk music. In 1976, music changed forever. Punk arrived--offering an electrifying alternative to the bloated, sterile rock music of the day. "No More Heroes" chronicles not only the icons of the punk movement, but also looks at the lesser-known bands and music of the era. Here are detailed accounts--often at variance with conventional wisdom--about the careers of groups like the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Damned, the Buzzcocks, the Stranglers, and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Based on 200 interviews with some of punk's key players, this is an exhaustive A-Z overview of the subject, including extensive biographical notes, complete discographies, a buyer's guide, and many never-before-seen photos.
