This book is an attempt to document some of the many ways pop music and punk and post-punk style affected the lifestyles of that period in Northern New Jersey. It is based on my scrapbook and what I can remember about my favorite events of the period. It tells a lot of the story, but is no way complete. I urge fellow participants to write their own books in order to give credit to others who helped to change the corporate dictators of style, media and products to what the people wanted instead of what the corporations wanted. Eventually, the corporations got their power back, but the changes were permanently put into place and still exist in pop culture to this day. There are many photos, news clippings and promotional materials. There are also some photos from the author's personal collection that have never been seen before. Brian Catanzaro, author.
