Book Review: More Fun in the New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of LA Punk

Picking up where Under the Big Black Sun left off, More Fun in the New World covers 1982 to 1987, the pinnacle of LA punk rock as its stars took to the national—and often international—stage. Detailing the eventual splintering of punk into sub-genres, this second volume of John Doe and Tom DeSavia's west coast punk history portrays the rich cultural diversity of the movement and its characters, the legacy of the scene, how it affected other art forms, and ultimately influenced mainstream pop culture.
