We Owe You Nothing: Punk Planet the Collected Interviews
Some of the political stuff Punk Voter anyone? As would be expected, the interviews are not all equally interesting, but on the whole I really enjoyed the book. A lot of these people are not frequent mainstream interview subjects, nor the subject of an intelligent interview, and that goes a long way. It would be fascinating to see a follow-up book with newer interviews with the subjects in this book; I'm not sure that Ted Leo would still qualify as someone who kind of burned out of punk. I chuckled a bit about him being lumped in there, he's As would be expected, the interviews are not all equally interesting, but on the whole I really enjoyed the book.
I chuckled a bit about him being lumped in there, he's done a lot of quality work in the passing years. Interviews, interviews, and then more interviews. Gets a little boring pretty fast. And disappointing, too. In particular, Kathleen Hanna unfortunately comes off as self-centered and even slightly reactionary.
The interviews with Black Flag is the typical boring drama that no one cares about. Everything else is the same old shit.

Jul 24, Betsy rated it it was ok. The trouble with this collection of interviews is that if you don't care about the artist being interviewed, you probably don't care what they're saying.

Or get their references to their own work. I read the people I liked, which was nice, then I read a couple of the interviews of people I'd heard of, which was dull. And then I stopped. If you like one of the artists in the book, you could probably just read it in the bookstore. Shelves: non-fiction. Lots of stuff you've heard already, such as ramblings by Jello Biafra, Black Flag, et al. Pays almost exclusive attention to the '90's. Interesting stuff, but by no means indispensable -- a good read for the bus or the beach, or a nice primer for the young'uns.
Dec 28, Amy rated it really liked it. I have been dropping in on this book from time to time over the past several months -- it's great for reading an interview with an interesting person before bed or on a Saturday between loads of laundry. And I confess I didn't read every single one. But I read most of them, and many of them were thought-provoking, and some were downright inspiring.

We Owe You Nothing: Expanded Edition: Punk Planet: The Collected Interviews
Interesting to read some of these interviews that took place ten or more years ago. It's also funny how some of their politic predictions were spot on and getting the reminder of how things were in music before the digital world. Some people were total disappointments though, and it ruined what I think about them and their music.
Oh well! Still a fun read! Aug 28, Kristin Herrick rated it really liked it. Interesting thoughts. Great commentary on a "hidden" world showing all viewpoints. A collection of interviews that focuses mainly on s punk music. Some of the interviews were interesting, but others didn't add much to the topic of punk history. Aug 28, Ang Quine rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent collection of interviews from Punk Planet.
The interviewees are inspiring and interesting.
I now feel like I should be doing more. I'm going out to chuck paint at some fur coats! Laters xx. Jun 19, Jason rated it it was amazing. I've read it a few times and I love the snapshot of music that it portrays. I know there are scenes out there that reflect what happened with punk music, I am just too old to find them anymore, in the meantime, I will just relive the good old days.

Jul 25, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. This is really enjoyable, mixed with more than a tinge of sadness - Punk Planet the zine finally ceased publication this summer. Go read it, especially if you've never experienced the zine. May 19, Amy Kinard rated it it was ok. Not a whole lot here I hadn't read before.
Some of the interviews just seemed really dry and uninspiring. There are other, much better books out there View 1 comment.go

However, the most punk part of the book, which comes out in September, is the acknowledgments. Be ready, the end is nigh. We're a conduit for him expressing himself. Temple hopes the new imprint, like Punk Planet magazine, will blend a punk ethos with an interest in politics and culture.
Andersen had originally planned to publish the book with AK Press, an Oakland-based collective that specializes in political books with an anarchist bent, but he felt they were dragging their feet. Sinker thought it was perfect for Punk Planet.
Putting two very different books out at once also fit his concept of the imprint: "Really eclectic, this almost disconnected collection of books. That's very reflective of the magazine and of my interpretation of what punk is: it's not a single form.
You can't pin down what Punk Planet Books is by looking at one book. The timing, he concedes, has been less than ideal: "With two books at galley at this point, I can say that that was crazy.
