NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990 - Book On The Way


NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990 book, Tony Rettman's ambitious oral history, is coming out on Bazillion Points Books this November. The book captures ten years of struggle, including the scene's regional rivalries with D.C. and Boston, the birth of moshing, the clash and coming to terms of hardcore and heavy metal, the straightedge movement, and the unlikely influence of Krishna consciousness.

Get more info about it here. It also features a foreword by Freddy Cricien of Madball.

Yeah this will be cool, even though there is lots of documentaries about 80s HxC and NYHC already.

Why mention documentaries when it is a book?

I made an oops.

Definitely misread it as being a documentary. Excuse my lapse of brain function.
