Travel Guides

In 2016 it will be 40 years since punk exploded into the public view. It was a movement rooted in London, as this new guide shows. Written by cultural historian Paul Gorman, with rare archive photos , Punk London charts the squats, clubs, shops and rehearsal spaces from which punk emerged and grew into a global phenomenon. The guide takes in Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood's Sex shop at 430 Kings Road; the Hampstead flat shared by Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious; Saint Martin's School Of Art, where the Sex Pistols made their debut performance; Pathway Studios in Canonbury, where The Damned recorded New Rose, the first punk release; The Clash's Chalk Farm rehearsal space and many more locations associated with all the movement's key figures.
