Snapshots from London's Greatest Party

Graham Smith was the unofficial house photographer of London’s club scene in the late ’70s and early ’80s, chronicling one of the most flamboyant, lurid and just-plain-awesome periods in grooming history.

For proof, check out the newly released We Can Be Heroes. It’s got hundreds of never-before-seen stills, capturing punk legends like Gary Kemp, the Sex Pistols, Boy George, Iggy Pop, Robert Elms and hundreds more in remarkably—and, at times, eerily—intimate preshow moments.

As Brit style writer Robert Elms explains, the London club scene in the 1970s “wasn’t a place for those who dressed up for the occasion but for those who dressed up as a way of life.”

The book goes on sale December 8. Click here for a Karma Chameleonic sneak peak...»

Roger’s Adventures in Punk Rock

One of the big upshots of Roger Ebert’s ongoing victory lap is all the cool stuff he’s managed to dig up from his files. Case in point: his never-filmed script for a Sex Pistols movie, newly posted after more than 30 years of sitting in a file cabinet somewhere. It’s no Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, but he still managed to invent a dance called “The Grapple” and concoct a junk-fueled love scene between Sid Vicious and his mother. We eagerly await the condensed YouTube reenactment.
