jamie reid's PUNK design

never mind the bullocks, 1977
punk's embrace of the void is not that obvious in this album. reid's random note-style reflects a frustration with 1970's corporate media indulgence.


the text and the flat colors reinforce a nihilism that is culturally based in the social difficulties of the times. during the 1970's unemployment was high. the drug culture featured cocaine and heroin rather then the psychedelic drugs of the 1960's.
