Art punk

Art punk is a style of music originating in late 1970s post-punk.[1] The term was used as a pejorative for higher-educated punk rock bands who were out of step with the genre's ideologies.[1] It generated punk's aesthetic of being simple, offensive, and free-spirited, in contrast to pub rock, which generated its angry, working-class audience.[2]

History[edit]

Musicologists Simon Frith and Howard Horne described the band managers of the 1970s punk bands as "the most articulate theorists of the art punk movement", with Bob Last of Fast Product identified as one of the first to apply art theory to marketing, and Tony Wilson's Factory Records described as "applying the Bauhaus principle of the same 'look' for all the company's goods".[3] Anna Szemere traces the beginnings of the Hungarian art-punk subculture to 1978, when punk band The Spions performed three concerts which drew on conceptualist performance art and Antonin Artaud's "theatre of cruelty", with neo-avant-garde/anarchist manifestos handed out to the audience.[4] Wire's Colin Newman described art punk in 2006 as "the drug of choice of a whole generation."[5]
