ANTI-MATTER ANTHOLOGY, THE
by Norman Brannon (2007/REVELATION)
POST-PUNK/HARDCORE. While much ink has been spilled over '80s 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 '90s, 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.
