This Thursday, Ollie Stench visited Light Grey Art Lab to talk about Punk Rock, specifically how he defines Punk Rock as a movement, the culture and worldview that created it and how it changed the world since.
It was an energetic talk that was inspiring both for Punk Rock enthusiasts and neophytes alike. Ollie did a great job outlining some of the major players in Punk Rock's birth, and spoke to the social context of the time, and why the Punk Rock movement was an inevitable reaction to culture of the early '70s.
Ollie is a passionate (and opinionated) speaker, and it was impossible not to be drawn into the world he so clearly loves! The lecture was great fun and a huge success, and we look forward to hearing more from Ollie in the future!
Ollie Stench has been an active participant in the Punk Rock scene for the last 30 years of his life, and he is an incredible expert in everything that surrounds the topic. You can find out what he's up to at his blog.
You can see more photos from the event on our flickr group. We will have an audio version of the lecture available on our website as soon as possible!
