Kill A Punk for Rock & Roll is an enthralling new entrant in the Rock & Roll Photography Book Hall of Fame. Like many serious music fans, Perez is a photographer whose taste and awareness around rock music was forged in the 1970s and 1980s, a period when classic rock dinosaurs such as Led Zeppelin, Yes, Queen, Rod Stewart, and ELO still walked the earth, and a period that overlaps and travels into punk and new wave: The Clash, Talking Heads, B-52’s, Graham Parker, Patti Smith.
Kill A Punk for Rock & Roll chronologically documents the parallel worlds of stadium rock and the underground scene, from 1976 to the present. This is the first collection of his images, culled from five decades of rock’n roll decadence, providing a fascinating juxtaposition of household names with the much more obscure, alternative underground bands who didn’t see the bright lights as close, yet still hold that certain magic of the era.
