Steve Wide


A Field Guide to … delves into music’s most influential genres to uncover the innovators and agitators who changed music history forever.

In A Field Guide to Punk, Steve Wide explores a scene that was held together by safety pins and attitude – the artists and albums, music labels, fashion, who’s who and hangabouts that defined the era. From the octane-fuelled Ramones to the Sex Pistols’ seminal Never Mind the Bollocks, this book takes you behind the image to look at music’s most reactionary and revolutionary moment in history.
