International New Wave Discography (Volume-International Discography of the New Wave) Reviews
This is the essential (and getting harder to find in a nice condition)bible of punk rock and new wave bands from the beginnings until 1982.It is missing a few bands(Youth Korps and Bloodclot come to mind)but nobody has ever topped it.
This book came out at the height of the initial New wave explosion and it provides one of the only real international compendia of the genre. At the time it was really almost complete. There had apparently been a previous edition but this one is incredibe. It compiles punk, and post-punk from ...everywhere. Of course it could not be bettered and was not re-edited...unfortunately. If you are interested in this music, this is truly indispensable.
This book is incredible and, for the most part, accurate. Old and out of print, this book is an amazing resource for records form the golden age of independent music. Nothing comes close.
