Ian Glasper on the Minor Compositions podcast

Minor Compositions Podcast Episode 12: The Subhumans & Punk Historiography with Ian Glasper

For this episode Stevphen at Minor Compositions spoke with Ian Glasper about his latest book 'Silence Is No Reaction: Forty Years of Subhumans'. In the conversation they cover broader issues of ‘punk historiography’ and documenting more marginal musical, artistic, and political milieus.

Ian has been writing about punk since starting his first zine in 1986, switching to writing books in the early 2000s as he grew increasingly frustrated that existing histories of punk tended to focus on the best known and most visible artists, completely neglecting the much wider and vibrant array of bands and music.

Bio: Ian Glasper is the author of numerous books on the history of punk and metal including Burning Britain: The History of UK Punk 1980-1984, The Day The Country Died: A History Of Anarcho Punk 1980 – 1984, Trapped In A Scene: UK Hardcore 1985 – 1989, Armed With Anger: How UK Punk Survived The Nineties, The Scene That Would Not Die: Twenty years of post-millennial punk in the UK, Terrorized: The Collected Interviews, Volumes 1 & 2 and Silence is no reaction: Forty years of Subhumans.
