To quote a dear friend and collaborator
"It is embarrassing to talk about PUNK IS DAD because Jamie's presentation is so succinct you end up using twice as many words as her only to clomp and lurch around its perfection. I will just say that this zine is sharply vindicating for people who love punk but also think about its contradictions, its recuperation, and its deep possibility so undermined by the alienating force of male punk attitude. And if you haven't really thought about these things so much, but you love punk, it will turn your body to a skeleton. ”
