This is an excellent book about the No Wave scene in New York in the late 1970's- great pics as well.

This is an excellent oral and pictorial history of No Wave, the label that attaches to the art punk music scene found in lower Manhattan in the late 1970s, early 1980s. The book focuses mostly on the four bands -- Mars, D.N.A., Teenage Jesus, Contortions -- featured on NO NEW YORK, the Brian Eno-produced compilation album of 1978. It conjures up a long-gone time of cheap downtown rents, partying and art for art's sake -- creativity! What should be a rite of passage for every generation seems now, with today's post-9/11 militarism and post-bailout stagnation rife with usurious student loans, like proof of life from another planet.
