Transcript of Marketing Spring 2012

Roots of Punk mid 1970’s, London

Middle class teenagers made ‘a cry of revolt’ due to the poor economy shape (government)

Unemployment + Anger = Youth; led to the movement

Aim: have a tattered, dishevelled exterior to express their aggression and frustration

Nihilism (negating any meaning of life), non-conformity, anti-establishment are the basis of their ideologies and concerns, using the ‘No Future’ slogan and unconventional fluorescent colour Mohawks.

Vulgar language, mismatched layered fashion held together by safety pins evidence of nonconformity

Dress sense- theatrical manner: seek outrage from the general public with the use of cosmetics and tattoos

Appearances of great value, embracing individuality and freedom

Loud, raw, aggressive music, e.g. ‘God Save the Queen’ by the Sex Pistols

Music is a catalyst for their development Who is the Punk Lite? Increased influence on social media and other subcultures, including Sydney (the Punk Lite)

Described as a hybrid of New Romance Emo, Techno Boho and Punk itself

‘Promote tolerance, inclusion and love’ (case study) despite the impact of Goths

Support mainstream music and unsigned primitive music (D.I.Y ethics, tied to punk ideology) and the reference for the images on the bottom are
