Books Info:

Gimme Something Better free pdf 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 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 long-time Bay Area journalist Jack Boulware and Silka 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.
