Bar Redux & Strange Creature's Present Martin Atkins: Punk Rock Revolution Lecture/ Q&A
Martin Atkins presents a socio-economic backdrop to the Punk Rock Revolution. Atkins is qualified to give this lecture not because he was in a band with Johnny Rotten for 5 years,(Public Image Ltd) but because he grew up in a rock band during that unique time in history. He gives his perspective as a young musician growing up in the North of England experiencing the miners' strikes and humanizes the economic hardship of the era. He follows post punk through China to its present day influences.
Martin Atkins is the definition of entrepreneurial activity in cultural arts endeavors, his 35+ years in the music business spans across genres and borders and industries.
He was a member of Public Image Ltd and Killing Joke. He founded industrial supergroup Pigface, The Damage Manual, and Murder Inc., and has contributed to Nine Inch Nails (for which he has a Grammy) and Ministry. He is the owner of Invisible Records and Mattress Factory Recording Studios (est. 1988). He is the author of Tour:Smart, Welcome To The Music Business….You’re F*cked!” Band:Smart and the Music Business Dept Chair at SAE Chicago. Martin is a producer, drummer, documentary film maker, DJ, and father of four. Whatever the future of music is, you can pretty much bet that he’ll be in the middle of it.
