HARDCORE/PUNK. Known for its glamorous 1970s punk-rock scene, New York City matched the grim, urban reality of the 1980s with a rawer musical uprising: New York Hardcore as bands of misfits from across the region gravitated to the forgotten frontier of Manhattan's Lower East Side. With a backdrop of despair, bands like AGNOSTIC FRONT, CRO-MAGS, MURPHY'S LAW and YOUTH OF TODAY confronted their reality with relentlessly energetic gigs at CBGB, A7 and the numerous squats in the area. Tony Rettman's ambitious oral history captures ten years of struggling, including the scene's original rivalries with DC and boston, the birth of moshing, the clash and coming to terms of hardcore and heavy metal, the straight edge movement and the unlikely influence of Krishna consciousness. Foreword by Freddy Cricien of Madball. 450 pages!

HARDCORE/PUNK. Starting in 1981 via MINOR THREAT's revolutionary call to arms, the clean and positive straight edge hardcore punk movement took hold and prospered during the '80s, earning a position as one of the most durable yet chronically misunderstood music subcultures. Straight-edge created its own sound and visual style, went on to embrace vegetarianism and later saw the rise of a militant fringe. As the "don't drink, don't smoke" message spread from Washington, DC to Boston, California, New York City and, eventually, the world, adherents struggled to define the fundamental ideals and limits of what may be the ultimate youth movement.

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!
