The Spectacle of Society, the Society of Failure and the Failure of Punk. Or; Elvis Is Dead

"On the history of punk, the history of teaching punk. And how it all went straight to hell."

Michael Stock is best known as the DJ of the critically acclaimed PART TIME PUNKS radio show on KXLU 88.9FM and promoter/DJ of the club nite of the same name at The Echo in LA, both of which began over a decade ago. During daylight hours, he teaches courses on punk, film, writing and comic books, currently at Sci-Arc but previously at CalArts, Loyola Marymount University and UC-Irvine. He writes comics, too, and his first graphic novel, PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX, was published by Image Comics the summer of 2015.
