Nefarious Artists nominated for an ARSC Award

Stoked on this... "...very pleased to inform you that the Earth Island Books title, Nefarious Artists: The Evolution and Art of the Punk Rock, Post-Punk, New Wave, Hardcore Punk and Alternative Rock Compilation Record 1976 - 1989 by Welly Artcore, has been nominated for the 2024 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research."


"The goal of the ARSC Awards program is to recognise and draw attention to the finest work now being published in the field of recorded sound research."

The winners will be announced by September, and the awards will be presented during a banquet at ARSC’s annual conference in May 2025. Additional information about ARSC, the awards, and this year’s conference may be found on the ARSC website at

Also, huge thanks to the esteemed Ian Glasper and Sanctus Propaganda for their recent review:

“Simply put, this is easily the best book about punk compilations I’ve ever read. Admittedly, it’s the only one I’ve ever read, but don’t let that detract from the fact this is an essential purchase if you have more than a passing interest in the punk and new wave subcultures.”
