Every once in a while, when you think some dead body has been picked over as much as possible, something new pops up to surprise & delight. In this case, the dead body: '77-era UK punk; the surprise & delight: the wonderfully cheap & candid photos taken by Simon Barker - member of the legendary Bromley Contingent crowd. His new book Punk's Dead shows these photos in all of their beauty...
