NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990 (engl.) Book

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. Trade paperback, 6.75" x 9.5", 450 pages.  Bazillion Points 2014
