The music of the punk and new wave era, turned popular music upside down at the end of the 1970s and also created amazing poster art.

While punk recordings, as represented by the key document of the time - the Ripper label album AK79 - were often crude demo recordings, the gig posters were excellently executed work by art school attending band members or young illustrators inspired by the new bands playing Auckland's inner-city venues.

To mark the start of NZ Music Month tomorrow, we're joined by the exhibition's curator, Murray Cammick.
