Mike Lerner / RU, 2013

There’s a price to pay for punk - the Russian Pussy Riot found it out to their cost. Putin had them locked up after an illegal gig at Moscow’s Christ the Saviour cathedral.

FURY! Punk Culture

The year is 1976, the second industrial era is screeching to a conclusion and the oil crisis is at an all-time low when an undeniable counter-voice is heard in the dilapidated inner cities of London, Amsterdam and New York. A call for rebellion against the capitalist thinking that fills the pockets of the wealthy minority. It's a provocative cry from teens and young adults who no longer want to do what parents, teachers and politicians expect of them.
