Like Punk Never Happened

Like Punk Never Happened
Culture Club and the New Pop


Looks at the second British invasion in rock music, describes how pop quickly replaced punk, and describes the rise of Culture Club.


'A controversial and honest account of My Life On The Road With Rock Group, a potted history of pop from '79-'85, and a serious analysis of the whole mess... Dave Rimmer has one great weapon at his disposal. He was there.' David Quantick, NME

'As sharp a study of British pop as we'll get ... Rimmer's point is that if the new pop stars' success makes it seem 'like punk never happened', they emerged, in fact, as a direct result of punk attitudes... Rimmer tells this story in his raciest Smash Hits manner, with wit, insider info and scandal.' Simon Frith, City Limits

'Rimmer is among the most entertaining writers ever to pen a rock book.' Dave Marsh, Rock and Roll Confidential (less)
