ANTI-MATTER ANTHOLOGY, THE
By Norman Brannon (2007/REVELATION)
POST-PUNK/HARDCORE. While much ink has been spilled over 1980s punk- and hardcore mythology, eventually culminating with a Sony Pictures feature film, "American hardcore", released in 2006, very little has been revealed about the era that followed. Indeed, it's a glaring omission. In the 1990s, punk-rock entered its adolescent stage and began reevaluating its own music, politics, and traditions. And before long, the result of this collective soul-searching became clear: If hardcore wanted to remain relevant in the new decade, it was going to have to rebel against itself. "The anti-matter anthology" is perhaps the first published book dedicated to this transition.
BURNING FIGHT: THE NINETIES HARDCORE REVOLUTION...
brian peterson (2009/REVELATION)
HARDCORE. "burning fight: the nineties hardcore revolution in ethics, politics, spirit, and sound" by Brian Peterson. Although some define hardcore as a specific sound, most believe it's more than that; a set of varying ideas, ethics, principles, attitudes and, yes, music, that converge to form a community. "burning fight: the nineties hardcore revolution in ethics, politics, spirit, and sound" by Brian Peterson provides some answers, but also brings up a whole new set of questions for those who've been drawn to the scene's political, social, ethical and spiritual ideas amidst the screamed vocals and abrasive chords. BURNING FIGHT features commentary from approximately 150 participants from the '90s hardcore scene as well as oral history articles about straight edge, politics, vegetarianism and interviews with a variety of influential bands such as: AVAIL, BURN, EARTH CRISIS, INSIDE OUT, INTEGRITY, LOS CRUDOS, SPITBOY, STRIFE, TEXAS IS THE REASON; UNBROKEN and more.

HÜSKER DÜ: THE STORY OF THE NOISE-POP PIONEERS...
andrew earles (2011/VOYAGEUR)
HARDCORE/INDIE. "hüsker dü: the story of the noise-pop pioneers who launched modern rock" by Andrew Earles. In the twenty-plus years since Bob Mould, Grant Hart and Greg Norton dissolved HÜSKER DÜ, critics, musicians and fans have constantly cited the trio as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1980s. In this long-overdue band bio, author Andrew Earle interviews Hart and Norton along with numerous players in that decade's underground, charting the band as they rise above their "loud fast rules" peers and become sonic trailblazers welding pop melodies to ear-shattering volume. Few bands from the original American indie movement did more to inform the alt-rock styles that breached the mainstream in the 1990s.

kurz vor dem arsch der welt links ab (2011/D.I.Y.)
Ein Punk-Rock-Heimat- & Jugendroman, der auf 250 engbedruckten Seiten das Aufwachsen im Vorgarten der Großstadtmetropole Stuttgart zelebriert. Allerdings könnte es auch jedes andere Landeshauptstadteinzugsgebiet sein. Kurz daneben, statt mittendrin, ein Lebensgefühl, das jeder kennt, dessen Arme manchmal zu kurz waren, um mitten hinein zu greifen, aber seit langer Zeit verdrängt hat. Nebenher wird erzählt, wie Punk in den 80ern funktioniert hat. Wie fand Punk und später Hardcore kurz vor dem Arsch der Welt tasächlich statt? Wie funktionierte das in der grauen Urzeit bevor das Internet mit all seinen Annehmlichkeiten auch das letzte Kaff beglückte? Wie kam man an Musik, Klamotten, Konzerte und wer trug eigentlich am Meisten zur Verbreitung von Punk bei? Wenn man so will, die etwas tiefschürfendere Alternative zu Rocko Schamonis Kitschroman "Dorfpunks".
