The Socio-Economic Background to the Punk Rock Revloution

Martin Atkins takes us on a journey to the UK and examines the social circumstances that lead to the development of the punk rock scene. Atkins is definitely a leading authority on the topic—not just because he was in a band with Johnny Rotten for five years —but because he grew up in the north of England and mutated from a trippy hair band to punk rock pill head in a couple of years. This is the UK version of punk and the climate that surrounded it—miners’ strikes, the IRA, and some unexpected lessons from the first time he gave this lecture at USC in California.
