ZOUNDS DEMYSTIFIED: Lyrics and Notes by Steve Lake
"Zounds has been described as a political band. It has been labelled as squat-rock, pop-rock, peace-punk, anarcho-punk, post-punk, psychedelic, punk-pop and a million other things. But those are just labels, I'm not that bothered what people call it really." Steve Lake, June 2013
In this book Steve Lake, principle writer of the anarcho-punk band Zounds, collects all the band's lyrics and illuminates each with a relevant commentary. It contains personal reminisces about how the band and their peers lived, it delves into the background of the lyrics and looks at the wider social context in which the band operated.
