False Prophet: Field Notes From The Punk Underground Book and CD

by Steven Taylor

A detailed journal of the author’s experience as a five year member of the New York agit-prop punk band, False Prophets; broadened-out to also explore the international anarchist youth movement. Includes a CD of the bands’ final recording – the Invisible People, a mini album that was released in 1990 by Konkurrel. The first False Prophets album, released in 1986 by Alternative Tentacles, is something of an overlooked classic. And live, wow, what a revelation – as a teeneager I caught them in Bristol, and we had to jump back in a car a few days later to travel to Lemmington Spa to watch them a second time, because that’s how amazing they were. Anyone he witnessed them on that tour will want to read this book.

paperback 336 pages, 136m x 23cm.
