Format: Paperback
Great photos for a well-needed revisit to a particularly cool scene.
I've been feeling nostalgic. Am I no longer young? Am I a different person now? It seems only yesterday that I was sitting in clubs watching the likes of The Ramones, The Clash, the B52s and the Talking Heads...
But wait. There are solutions for a revisit. Last summer I packed my wife and seven year old daughter and went to a triple bill - Psychedelic Furs, GoGo's and B-52s. Way cool. My kid loved it. I kinda felt young. Wasn't quite the same, but...
... now I can sit at home and page through these terrific photographs. Blank Generation Revisited is a perfect way to revisit. Yes, we're older and that scene is long gone, but this book captures the era with style and substance.

By Robert S. Robbins on October 7, 2005
Format: Paperback
I bought this book years ago but only just now read it cover to cover. It allowed me to successfully recapture the inspiration I originally felt when reading about CBGB punk rock. Over the years I've become bored with the subject and needed a fresh perspective to rekindle my interest. The book also made me realize that I don't have many albums by NYC punk bands so I've placed a large order for all the debut albums I could not afford as a teenager. Many of these albums will still be new to me.

By S. G. Lake on June 24, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the beginning Punk was dangerous, authentic.
It wasn't "a look" you could purchase at "The Mall"
at "a certain chain store".To choose Punk Rock you
were in a sense "drawing a line in the sand" and
you'd better be prepared to defend your stance. In
the days of "Big Arena Rock" and "Mellow Singer/Song-
writers" Punk Rock was a swift kick in the pants, a
jumpstart.A lot of these photographers will be familar,
especially if you read rock publications in the 1970s
such as "ROCK SCENE" & "CREEM".What's so sad is we've
gone too far and seen too much,we're so "desensitized"
that there is no way that Rock n Roll is ever going to
have that kind of an upheaval and rebuilding from scratch
ever again. :(
