The full, uncut retelling of the sensational story behind the cultural moment that was punk and its defining band . The Sex Pistols.
In The England's Dreaming Tapes, Jon Savage has gone back to the source to recreate, in original interview form, the extraordinarily disparate and contentious personalities who emerged in the mid-70s as the harbingers of what became known as punk.
Here in uncut form is the story of a generation that changed the world in just a few months in 1976. In interviews with all the major figures at the time - including all four original Sex Pistols, Joe Strummer, Chrissie Hynde, Jordan, Sioxsie Sioux, Viv Albertine, Adam Ant, Lee Black Childers, Howard Devoto, Pete Shelley, Syl Sylvain, Debbie Wilson, Tony Wilson and Jah Wobble - Jon Savage has produced a book huge in scope, vision and generosity of perspective.
The England's Dreaming Tapes will surely become the final word and the must-have oral history of the music, fashion and attitude that defined this influential and incendiary era.
Jon Savage is the author of England's Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock and Teenage: The Creation of Youth, 1875 - 1945.
