Squat City Rocks free pdf This musical memoir traces the author's life in the corrugated-iron clad ruins of West London's Squat Land during the two years immediately prior to the Punk Explosion of '76, playing with Strummer's seminal garage band "The 101'ers" in the spit-and-sawdust music bars of the capital. The thrills and spills of a crazy, quirky, hand-to-mouth existence gives way to relative disenchantment with the oncoming of the Punk Uprising, which for the author represents, at least partly, a sell-out to the Machiavellian Managers, as much as the vaunted revolution in British popular culture. After an aborted venture with the iconoclastic "Tymon Dogg and the Fools," a stint with Lydon's metal box period "Public Image Limited," a term with the Dantesque-dub of "Basement Five," Dudanski's tale relates the ups and downs of his involvement in a myriad of bands forming part of a fringe underground London scene through the late 70's and 80's - "Bank of Dresden," "The Raincoats," "The Tesco Bombers," "Vincent Units," "The Decomposers," and his eventual move from London to Granada... Forming an integral part of the book are the illustrations by Esperanza Romero (Richard's partner) many of which were drawn "in situ" back in time...
