In this class we are stayin’ local!

Jennifer Messelink, who recently completed her MA on the Edmonton punk community, will present on her thesis: “Documenting a Punk Music Scene in Edmonton, Alberta 1979-1985: Place, Legitimacy, and Belonging Articulated Through Mainstream and Independent Media.”

Corey Hamilton, an artist who organized shows in Edmonton in the early 1990s, will discuss the scene through 21 shows he participated in starting in 1986.

Following the two amazing presentations, we’ll discuss other local issues, and brainstorm ideas for our fanzine we’ll be putting together in May’s class for Edmonton Zine Fair 5!

And if you have any ideas for readings or the playlist, comment below!

The History of Punk
Wednesday 30 March 6:30PM
Location: Humanities 2-42, The University of Alberta
All-Ages, All-Welcome

richardhellandthevoidoids.jpg

We are ripping it up and starting again! We will be re-examining the topic of the first ever History of Punk class that took place way back in 2012. The original readings and playlist are below, so feel free to suggest additions!

“What is Punk?”

In this seminar we will trace the origins of punk and see if we can pinpoint its beginning. We will examine the basic tenet of punk, the Do-It-Yourself Ethic, and look at a foundation of the punk community: the fanzine. Ultimately, we’ll wrestle with two important questions – can punk be defined, and does punk have a history?

Readings:
We Got the Neutron Bomb, pp. 1-5.
A Cultural Dictionary of Punk, pp. 26-27, 169-170, 234-238.
Please Kill Me, pp. 163-173.
When did Punk start? Who Cares?
The Philosophy of Punk, pp. 21-41.

Playlist:
Los Saicos – “Demolicion”
The Sonics – “Strychnine”
MC5 – “Kick out the Jams”
Death – “Politicians in my Eyes”
Rocket from the Tombs – “30 Seconds Over Tokyo”
Richard Hell and the Voidoids – “Blank Generation”
The Velvet Underground – “I Can’t Stand It”
The Modern Lovers – “Roadrunner”
The Ramones – “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue” CBGB 1974
Patti Smith – “Gloria” 
Talking Heads, “Psycho Killer” Live at CBGB, 1975
Blondie with Fred Smith – “I Love Playing With Fire – May 4, 1977”
The Saints – “I’m Stranded”

The Slits – “Vindictive (Peel Session 1977)”
