Dublin has has a curious punk rock history. There have been some key moments like the initial Radiators from Space and the initial micro scene of U2 and the Virgin Prunes. There have also been long term mainstays like the great Paranoid Visions and a grass roots scene that clings on to this day. This book documents the punk scene and all the other youth culture moments in the Irish capital in the past few decades with some great images of punks, skins, suedeheads, mods, rockers, ravers and teds.
The book encompasses all the different youth tribes that went in and out of the city in the post war years. I love these kind of books. This is the real heart of pop culture. The dressing up, the steer dandies are far better dressed and more interesting than the pop stars with their designers telling them what to wear.
