Rogue Materials: 1972 – 2021
XEROXES, CUT-UPS & OUTTAKES FROM THE GODFATHER OF PUNK
Cutting room floor detritus encompassing 50 years of protest, music, art, radical thinking & speaking out.
Aided and abetted by the immediacy of xerox-machines, Jamie Reid has been hooked on the freedom of designing by cut, paste, copy & scrawl since his first encounter with these machines in 1972.
From Reid’s beginnings at community activist publication Suburban Press, to punk, the Sex Pistols and beyond, shot through with political & spiritual proclamations this book is a collage testament to Reid’s maxim:
Keep Warm, Make Trouble.
