Kinsella was in a Calgary punk band from the early 80s and wrote this book with enthusiasm. He seemed to dwell on things a bit too much sometimes, like about the Ramones being the greatest rock band of all-time, or how John Lyndon is a real ass-hole, but I liked the broad overview. It asked questions like 'what is punk', is 'punk dead', is the 'no future' slogan really part of punk, how did punk start. Well-written, not intellectual, and good for other book leads. Recommended. He is now a leftist political strategist.
He wrote Web of Hate in about 1993 about White Supremicist groups in Canada at the time. It was interesting... though I guess I read it like 15 years ago. Damn I am old!
