This September the University of Minnesota Press will be releasing The England's Dreaming Tapes by Jon Savage, a companion book to the author's 1991 book England's Dreaming: Anarchy, Sex Pistols, Punk Rock, and Beyond . In researching the earlier book Savage conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with notable members of the early UK punk scene, material which will now be available uncut in the new volume. Personalities interviewed include all four of the original Sex Pistols, Joe Strummer of The Clash, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Jordan, Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and The Banshees, Viv Albertine of The Slits, Adam Ant, Legs McNeil, Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley of Buzzcocks, Syl Sylvain of the New York Dolls, Captain Sensible of The Damned, Jah Wobble of Public Image Limited, and others. Topics discussed include the founding of the Sex Pistols, 430 King's Road and the Sex boutique, the scenes of New York and London as well as Manchester's Factory Records scene.

The book hits stores in September of 2010. You can find more info at the publisher's website.
