All Ages: The Rise and Fall of Portland Punk Rock, 1977-1981 is an in-depth history and analysis of Portland’s first punk scene, exploring the origins of Poison Idea, Dead Moon, the Wipers and the Neo Boys, as well as Sado-Nation, Smegma, Ice-9, Cleavers, StiphNoyds, Pell Mell, and many others.

Illustrated with 100 vintage concert posters and over 400 photographs – most of them never before published – plus, special sections on local fanzines and art, detailed show calendars for each year, and a wealth of contemporaneous memos, budgets, membership logs, and press reprints.

Mark Sten performed in several Portland “New Wave” bands between 1977 and 1981, and played a major role in producing shows, running live clubs, and releasing records during that period.
