Skins & Punks
Lost Archives 1978 – 1985 (book)
by Gavin Watson
5 out of 5 stars
Once you get over the whole oxymoronic idea of a coffee table book about punks, there is nothing less than stunning about this book.
Skins & Punks follows Gavin Watson’s days of youth in the working class area of High Wycombe, England. Watson takes the often “rough” punks scene and captures it with delicate beauty, warmth and humor.
The only problem is how beautiful it is. For the second printing, they should beat up the books, stomp them with Doc Martens and duct tape them back together.
