15 July - 26 September 2010. In 1976 Catalan poet Jordi Valls travelled to London where he spent the next two years recording a new type of anarchic music known as punk. The city of London found itself playing a pivotal role in this rebellious, angry scene, generally associated with disaffected youth whose wild hairstyles drew considerable attention. Valls was not to know at the time but he was documenting the climax of a movement which proved both short-lived and self-destructive.
His recordings of such punk greats as The Sex Pistols, The Damned and The Clash are complimented by a selection of iconic photographs.
