Speaker: Matt Grimes: Birmingham City University Title: Punk ‘zines – ‘symbols of defiance’ from the print to the digital age
What role do specialised publications play in the consumer’s experience of sub-cultures, music and the shaping of its meanings?
Drawing on ideas from authors such as Teal Triggs (1995 & 2006), Chris Atton (2001) Marion Leonard (2007), this presentation explores the development of punk fanzines from the late 1970s to the present, exploring the role of these music fan-produced publications in giving meaning to the experience of a music community.
