Episode 1: Ready to Rumble


Beautiful Garbage is a podcast from Osiris Media that traces the development of punk rock from American garages and bars to England and back in the mid-to-late 1970s. 

In Episode 1 we explore sound and style, tracing both technological advances and the sociopolitical factors that informed the punk aesthetic. To begin the story we draw a line from rock and roll’s earliest days to two of the genre’s four cornerstones, MC5 and The Velvet Underground, setting up the revolution that followed.

Beautiful Garbage is brought to you by Osiris Media. Written and Narrated by Kevin Hogan. Executive Producer is Adam Caplan. Production, mastering, and artwork by Brad Stratton. Visit Osirispod.com to go deeper and discover more content that connects you to the music you love.
