a selected visual history of american hc music (2008/MTV)
HARDCORE-PUNK. RADIO SILENCE documents the ignored space between the RAMONES and NIRVANA through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where this community built on do-it-yourself ethics thrived. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo have cataloged private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993. Unseen photos lay next to hand-made t-shirts and original artwork brought to life by the words of their creators and fans. RADIO SILENCE includes over 500 images of unseen photographs, illustrations, rare records, t-shirts, and fanzines presented in a manner that abandons the aesthetic cliches normally employed to depict the genre and lets the subject matter speak for itself. Contributions by Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Pena, Rusty Moore and Gavin Ogelsby with an essay by Mark Owens.

v/a LIMITED OPTIONS...SOLD AS NOBLE ENDEAVORS
HARDCORE/PUNK. It's extremely obvious that a lot of time was spent on this compilation. First of all, there's a real diverse selection of bands. They've also been arranged so that each band somehow goes with the one before and after and the volume level is consistent throughout. Not easy to pull off considering the mix here: MAN AFRAID, THE STRIKE, MK ULTRA, DILLINGER 4, SWALLOWING SHIT, and DEADSTOOLPIGEON, among others. Some of the bands are long gone, and some of the songs are previously released, but they've all got lyrics to keep you angry and thinking. This is a benefit and comes with Contrascience Fanzine # 5½. Contains articles on military recruiting, the systematic attack on the working class in the U.S., interviews with the benefit causes & pages by the bands.

WHY BE SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE NOT
detroit hardcore '79-'85 by tony rettmann (2010/REVELATION)
HARDCORE/PUNK. In the early '70, Detroit was the musical hub of America. Everything from the chart topping sounds of Motown Records to the vicious proto-punk of THE STOOGES was being brewed out there and it seemed like there was no end in sight. But by the '80s, the city was both a physical and cultural wasteland. "why be something that you're not" chronicles the 1st wave of Detroit hardcore from its origins in the late '70s to its demise in the mid '80s. Through a combination of oral history and extensive imagery, the book proves that even though the Southern California beach towns might have created the look and style of hardcore-punk, it was the Detroit scene - along with a handful of other cities across the country - that cultivated the music's grassroots aesthetic before most cultural hot spots around the globe even knew what the music was about. The book includes interviews with members of THE FIX, VIOLENT APATHY, NEGATIVE APPROACH, NECROS, PAGANS, BORED YOUTH, and L-SEVEN along with other people who had a hand in the early hardcore scene like Ian MacKaye, Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson - 256 pages at all!
