Subcultural Entrance Practices in UK Punk Culture
This chapter sets out to answer three questions: how did people enter punk subculture, why did they become involved, and what was their experience of entry? It presents the case that subcultural entrance is primarily an investigative practice propelling the participant towards an authentically styled knowledge, based around the discovery of what is deemed to be authentic punk rock. The chapter pursues such questions primarily through construction of an explanatory model detailing the social role of music and peer group relations within punk subculture.
