Taking Punk to the Masses From Nowhere To Nevermind

Taking Punk to the Masses From Nowhere To Nevermind

Author: McMurray Jacob
$45.00(AUD)  inc GST

Visually documents the explosion of grunge, the 'Seattle sound', within the context of the underground punk subculture that was developing throughout the US in the late 1970s and 1980s. The book serves as a companion and contextual backdrop to the Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses exhibition, which opens at Seattle's Experience Music Project in 2011. This decade-and-a-half musical journey is represented entirely through the lens of EMP's oral history and permanent object collection and an invaluable and rich cultural archive of over 800 interviews.

Despite its coffee table book appearance, McMurray tries to keep the punk rock do-it-yourself ethic by letting the artifacts and punk denizens speak for themselves.... The quotes from the publisher/artists who created them and musicians who were featured weave together nicely to give a sense of moment. --Ian S. Wilder
