Summary
Overshadowed by punk rockers in London, San Francisco, and New York, the importance of southern California's vibrant punk scene has often been overlooked. This scene's uniqueness, argues MacLeod (history, William Paterson University), was a result of the area's bleak suburban milieu, which produced bands that played hard and fast in a reflection of the boredom and alienation of southern California's youth. An active participant in the early punk scene himself, the author shows how bands like X, Los Illegals, and the Dils helped to create a distinctive regional subculture, and gave a much needed shot in the arm to the anemic US mainstream rock. Passionate and scholarly, this book will appeal to readers interested in punk rock and the history of rock music. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
