There Is No Authority But Yourself

I recently had a journal article published in a journal of which I am an advisory board member  Punk and Post Punk (Vol 4 No’s 2&3). The double special edition featured work from a number of Punk Scholars Network members, of which I am on the steering committee for, and was proud to have my work alongside such luminaries.

The article is about how popular music histories are documented and the formation of musical canons to reinforce particular histories of popular music. I use Alexander Oey’s documentary about Crass , “There Is No Authority But Yourself” as a way of investigating and challenging how punk histories are constructed through the use of the moving image.
