"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?"--Johnny Rotten, San Francisco, 1978




Rock-cultural critic Greil Marcus' book Lipstick Traces is not only an unparalleled celebration of punk rock, but one of the great commentaries on radical 20th-century cultural movements. In this uproarious theatrical adaptation by Texas-based performance collective Rude Mechs, Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren joins forces with a manic Dr. Narrator to trace those spontaneous, outrageous movements in our culture that raised no monuments. When our guides come to doubt the truth of history, they search for its alternative, and ask its selling price as a commodity. "A rock concert for your head . . . loud, defiant, informative, funny, literate, physical, and quick"(Austin Chronicle).
