countercultural ethnographies

hey folks,
at the college I attend, we spend junior and senior year researching and writing a thesis (we call it "plan"). I am writing an ethnography of contemporary punk counterculture in the U.S., taking photographs of punks, writing a fictional ethnography of a group in the future, and situating it all historically with a paper about bohemians in the early 1900's and hippies in the 1960's and 70's.
So, I'm interested in: ficitonal ethnographies, ethnographies of countercultures (particularly bohemians, hippies, and punks), and any other thing you think might be relevant. I have, of course, read Dick Hebdige, but for the most part what I have is original research I've conducted, and it would be great to have inspiration and/or footnotes from some other ethnographers or theorists.
