  • Jon Savage

    Jon Savage is the author of England's Dreaming: Sex pistols and Punk Rock and Teenage: The Creation of Youth, 1875 - 1945. He has written sleevesnotes for Wire, St. Etienne and the Pet Shop Boys, among others, and his compilations include: Meridian 1970 (Heavenly/EMI 2005); Queer Noises: From the Closest to the Charts 1961 - 1976 (Trikont 2006); and Dreams Come True: Classic Electro 1982-87 (Domino 2008).

“It’s a work that is not only the definitive account of the times and its subject, but one that has come to define the writer himself. Jon Savage literally wrote the book on punk, and that's some achievement. This is it.”
- Johnny Marr
“This is definitive . . . Savage looks at punk from a sociological perspective as much as musical one . . . he reanimates the Sex Pistols’ huge social impact.”
- Bob Stanley, Guardian, Bob Stanley's 10 best music histories
