Australian DJ Steve Wide explains the social climate of Thatcherism, along with a detailed timeline of foundational bands (as well as connected artists, like Damien Hurst, and other subversive genres like Britpop). There are breakdowns of the most iconic punk artists, as well as fashion designers, record labels, DJs, producers, engineers and magazines - all of which applied their own layer to the punk patchwork. There are deep dives into controversies, rivalries, and band breakups. And lastly, there’s a dissection of how evolutions of punk carry on today, in recorded music and in wider pop culture.
