Who knew when the Young family emigrated from Glasgow to Sydney in the early sixties that the family's youngest lads would go on to lead one of the world's most loved and respected rock bands? Who knew that some of their biggest fans would end up being their own heroes, the Rolling Stones? that streets in Melbourne and Madrid would be officially named in their honour? that they would play to two million people at a single concert in Moscow? For the first time, Murray Engleheart along with Arnaud Durieux tells the full story of Australia's greatest and loudest rock n' rock export. Not only did they manage to emerge from the tragic death of legendary singer, Bon Scott in 1980. But in a bitter sweet irony, the band's fortunes and status skyrocketed around the world with Scott's replacement, Brian Johnson and the album, Back In Black. More than 25 years on, AC/DC show no sign of slowing down and are more an institution than simply a rock band. try and imagine a world without them.

An oral history of the modern punk-revival?s West Coast Birthplace Outside of New York and London, California?s Bay Area claims the oldest continuous punk-rock scene in the world. Gimme Something Better brings this outrageous and influential punk scene to life, from the notorious final performance of the Sex Pistols, to Jello Biafra?s bid for mayor, the rise of Maximum RocknRoll magazine, and the East Bay pop-punk sound that sold millions around the globe. Throngs of punks, including members of the Dead Kennedys, Avengers, Flipper, MDC, Green Day, Rancid, NOFX, and AFI, tell their own stories in this definitive account, from the innovative art-damage of San Francisco?s Fab Mab in North Beach, to the still vibrant all-ages DIY ethos of Berkeley?s Gilman Street. Compiled by longtime Bay Area journalists Jack Boulware and Silke Tudor, Gimme Something Better chronicles more than two decades of punk music, progressive politics, social consciousness, and divine decadence, told by the people who made it happen.

Punk Record Labels and the Struggle for Autonomy

This book describes the emergence of DIY punk record labels in the early 1980s. Based on interviews with sixty-one labels, including four in Spain and four in Canada, it describes the social background of those who run these labels. Especially interesting are those operated by dropouts from the middle class. Other respected older labels are often run by people with upper middle-class backgrounds. A third group of labels are operated by working-class and lower middle-class punks who take a serious attitude to the work. Using the ideas of French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, this book shows how the field of record labels operates. The choice of independent or corporate distribution is a major dilemma. Other tensions are about signing contracts with bands, expecting extensive touring, and using professional promotion. There are often rivalries between big and small labels over bands that have become popular and have to decide whether to move to a more commercial record label. Unlike approaches to punk that consider it as subcultural style, this book breaks new ground by describing punk as a social activity. One of the surprising findings is how many parents actually support their children's participation in the scene. Rather than attempting to define punk as resistance or as commercial culture, this book shows the dilemmas that actual punks struggle with as they attempt to live up to what the scene means for them.

The definitive book on AC/DC, this edition is fully revised and updated, with two new chapters, just in time for the Australian leg of the AC/DC world tour in November. Two hundred million albums ago, AC/DC were delivering unforgettable performances on ABC TV's 'Countdown' - Bon Scott dressed as the schoolgirl from hell on one occasion, Angus Young somewhere inside a gorilla costume on another. In the 40 plus years since, the band has been the soundtrack for sexual encounters, drunken adventures, fights, weddings, births, funerals, new cars and new tattoos of literally millions of lives from Brussels to Brisbane, Montreal to Manchester and all points between. Not only did the band manage to emerge from Bon's tragic death in 1980, but in a bittersweet irony, their fortunes and status skyrocketed around the world with his replacement, Brian Johnson, and the album Back in Black. Despite all the odds, AC/DC show no sign of slowing down and are more an institution than simply a rock band. Try to imagine a world without them. 'Engleheart and Durieux tell the story ... pressing their faces as close as anyone has to the famous dome of silence that surrounds Australia's biggest rock export' The Age 'The AC/DC story has been told before ... but never as well' Classic Rock 'This is the nuts and bolts chronicle for blokes' Mojo

At the dawn of the 1990s, as the United States celebrated its victory in the Cold War and sole superpower status by waging war on Iraq and proclaiming democratic capitalism as the best possible society, the 1990s underground punk renaissance transformed the punk scene into a site of radical opposition to American empire. Nazi skinheads were ejected from the punk scene; apathetic attitudes were challenged; women, Latino, and LGBTQ participants asserted their identities and perspectives within punk; the scene debated the virtues of maintaining DIY purity versus venturing into the musical mainstream; and punks participated in protest movements from animal rights to stopping the execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal to shutting down the 1999 WTO meeting. Punk lyrics offered strident critiques of American empire, from its exploitation of the Third World to its warped social relations. Numerous subgenres of punk proliferated to deliver this critique, such as the blazing hardcore punk of bands like Los Crudos, propagandistic crust-punk/dis-core, grindcore and power violence with tempos over 800 beats per minute, and So-Cal punk with its combination of melody and hardcore. Musical analysis of each of these styles and the expressive efficacy of numerous bands reveals that punk is not merely simplistic three-chord rock music, but a genre that is constantly revolutionizing itself in which nuances of guitar riffs, vocal timbres, drum beats, and song structures are deeply meaningful to its audience, as corroborated by the robust discourse in punk zines.

Using the same plot as Charles Dickens' original story, A Punk Xmas Carol explores the sensitive topics of harm reduction, drug use, and social courtesy among punks new and old. Packed with references to punk characters and music, this story is a modern take on the classic that comments on the social and philosophical purpose of punk rock today. Norma is a young punk rocker that lives with her young brother and single mother. Her best friend Simon uses drugs, and after a tense conversation on Christmas Eve, the two split ways. That night Norma is haunted by three phantoms that show her the past, present, and future of her family, friends, and the subculture she identifies with.
