We're Desperate: The Punk Rock Photography of Jim Jocoy / 2002
We're Desperate: The Punk Rock Photography of Jim Jocoy : SF/LA 1978-1980 hardback published by Power House printed in Italy 1st ed. 2002.
1977: Punk rock music and fashion blew out of New York City, exploded in London, and caught like wildfire in San Francisco, Los Angeles and the world over. It developed concurrently everywhere, and every region had it's own identity. But it was in San Francisco and L.A. where the most radical behavior in stateside punk rock style and attitude was exhibited. It was anti-hippie, anti-disco, anti-parent and anti-"nice". And it was shockingly new. These photos are ground zero of punk rock style—delirious innovation and a snarling takeover of youth culture still resonating more than 20 years hence. With interview by Thurston Moore, Prose by Exene Cervenka and an introduction by Marc Jacobs.
If you know you know! A million street style photos. Cover shows some bumps and scuffs with small tear on back spine. Shows very well and is pretty major.
