Fanzines, Flyers and Phlegm – A Look At The British Library’s Punk 1976-78 Exhibit

This week sees the opening of the British Library’s ‘Punk 1976-78’ exhibition. Running May 13 until October 2, the exhibit celebrates 40 years since the birth of the genre, delving into the archives to look at the seismic shift that bondage trousers, gobbing and safey pins delivered to 1970s pop culture. The world would never be the same again. Here’s some of the stuff that’s on show.
