Format: Paperback
American Hardcore is a must have for any fans of this type of music or anyone who has any interest in the American hardcore scene. It breaks down the diverse US punk movement into regional scenes, bands from those scenes, quotes from famous names etc., has anecdotes and stories told, explains certain myths that came hand in hand with the music, gives opinions and comments from band members about the old days and generally dives head first into the whole hardcore scene gossip & history from that era ( mainly 1979 - 1986). Totally compelling - i haven't managed to put the book down yet! definately a must have for any hardcore fan. has unreleased photos, flyers and a massive discography with probably every US hardcore band who released anything ...
bands featured include DK's, SSD , Black Flag,Misfits,Minor Threat and what seems like a million other classic bands

Format: Paperback
if like me you are in your mid forties and can remember when hardcore was something new and energetic then this book is a must. In 1981-82 it was hard to get hardcore records by the likers of Flipper, T.S.O.L.The Lewd etc.I had to get them on import and most of the hardcore stuff blew my mind . While the uk. scene was ok, the us. scene was far superior,onto the book, first off some of the stories are of violence and gang mentality as well as the music. But packed with facts about the hardcore scene I didn't know ( the BAD BRAINS story is fantastic). The author has painstakingly trawled through hours and hours of interviews, with out a doubt the best book on punk/hardcore I have ever read.

This is more than a mere book, this is the true Hardcore Encyclopaedia. Steven Blush did an exhaustive and amazing job interviewing and covering the Hc bands/scene. 300 pages of pure information.

Warning: according to the author, HC died around '86. And according to me, Hardcore still lives!
