Punk London: celebrate a subculture

Punk turns 40 this year. Come and celebrate with one of these awesome events taking place across the city in 2016

Punk’s not dead. In fact, it’s more alive than ever. What started as a weird subculture in mid-’70s London and New York has echoed in music, fashion, art and design ever since. Punk London is a fortieth-anniversary series celebrating the city’s gobby rock ’n’ roll heritage. It’s organised (yes, they’re aware of the irony) by some major players on the London arts scene, including the British Fashion Council, the BFI and the Museum of London. Here are some highlights.

Loved the Punk London article in the mag - I especially liked the sight of David Smith wearing my bands white enamel KIdda Band badge. Fame at last.
