See these Pictures from When Punk was Born

John Ingham

Here are some amazing pictures taken at the time of punk’s birth in 1976/77 by music journalist John Ingham. All of these are featured in his book Spirit of 76. Punk style was whatever the fuck people wanted to wear to go see bands like The Clash, the Sex Pistols, the Damned, Siouxsie and the Banshees and more. So many short-haired women! So many suits! So much freedom! Enjoy…

Living in the shadow of grizzly bears, cougars and the other predators of the wilderness taught her about the dark side of nature, and taught her to accept her place in nature's order as their prey. She is co-founder of CVLT Nation.
