The classic document of punk and postpunk music in Australia. The bands that spearheaded the late '70s punk scene in Australia - the Saints, the Birthday Party, Radio Birdman and the Go-Betweens - are among the most important of their time. 'Inner City Sound' is the classic account of the explosive development of that scene. Original articles from fanzines and newspapers, together with almost 300 photographs, vividly portray the creative ferment of the period and the dozens of bands that sprang up in the wake of the pioneers, including the Scientists, Severed Heads, Sunnyboys, Hunters and Collectors and many more. 'Inner City Sound' was first published in late 1981, as the postpunk scene was approaching its zenith, but soon fell out of print. It became a lost classic, so sought after that it has been bootlegged like the rare singles listed in its discography, and its influence was so seminal it actually helped shape the Australian indie rock scene of the following decade. With this new edition, 'Inner City Sound' is back in print for the first time in over 20 years. Editor Clinton Walker has added 32 extra pages of articles, photos and discographical data, which take the story through to its real resolution around 1985, when Nick Cave, the Go-Betweens, the Triffids, and others began to break through internationally.
