More Fun In The New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of LA Punk
John Doe and Tom Desavia
More Fun in the New World explores the years 1982 to 1987, covering the dizzying pinnacle of L.A.'s punk rock movement as its stars took to the national-- and often international--stage. Detailing the eventual splintering of punk into various subgenres, ohn Doe and Tom Desavia's west coast punk history portrays the rich cultural diversity of the movement and its characters, examines the legacy of the scene, and witnesses its effect on the other art forms and its influence on mainstream pop culture. The book also pays tribute to many of the fallen soldiers of punk rock, the pioneers who left the world much too early but whose influence hasn't faded.
