Evaluations and Awards

“This guide makes a considerable contribution to scholarship on punk and different types of music and standard expression inside the bigger contours of historical past … Extremely really useful.” — J. G. Matthews, CHOICE

“Overlook ‘the politics of punk.’ Punk is politics, even when Brygada Kryzys sang ‘I do not belief politicians’ in Poland in 1981. However now we all know, because of Punk Disaster, that punk was transnational politics, too. Transnational is nothing if it is not DIY, and Ray Patton reveals us tips on how to do it on this vigorous and beneficial guide.” — Padraic Kenney, Professor of Historical past and Worldwide Research, Indiana College

“By drawing consideration to punkâs place within the Chilly Struggle, Punk Disaster reminds us of the shared spirit of ’77 throughout the globe and brings new gamers onto the stage for a rave-up. Patton provides each a super introduction for younger punks and a brand new twist for the grizzled veterans who may not know the entire story. London calling, Warsaw calling, Kingston calling.” — Jonathyne Briggs, Affiliate Professor of Historical past, Indiana College Northwest, Creator of Sounds French
