Punk Music in Ireland: The Political Power of "What-Might-Have-Been"

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The article considers punk music in Northern Ireland in the late 1970s. Looked at from the perspective of thirty years later, punk is often presented as a utopian moment in Northern Ireland when the young, rebelling against the sectarian culture of their parents, actually crossed Ulster's seemingly intractable divide.
