Brand new paperback.

An up-close and personal account of the L.A. punk scene, told by those who were there, with 50 rare photos

Under the Big Black Sun explores the nascent Los Angeles punk rock movement and its evolution to hardcore punk. Authors John Doe and Tom DeSavia have woven together an enthralling story of the legendary West Coast scene from 1977 to 1982 by enlisting the voices of people who were there. The book shares chapter–length tales from the authors along with personal essays from famous (and infamous) players on the scene. Through interstitial commentary, John Doe narrates this journey through the land of film noir sunshine, Hollywood back alleys, and suburban sprawl, where he met his artistic counterparts Exene, DJ Bonebrake, and Billy Zoom and formed X, the band that became synonymous with, and in many ways defined, L.A. punk.
