XXX Fanzine (1983-1988): Hardcore and Punk in the Eighties (Hardcover)
xXx Fanzine isn't merely a collection of articles, reviews, and photographs from one of Hardcore America's best-known fanzines. It's a chronicle of punk's evolution in the 80's: a story of music and ideologies in motion. xXx's story picks up while the first wave of hardcore was in full swing. Major players including Minor Threat had already released landmark records, and bands were loading up station wagons to play now infamous venues like The Channel, A7 or D.C. Space.
Now, in addition to reproducing (and restoring) original interviews and pages from the zine itself, xXx Fanzine re-interviews countless bands and musical prime-movers including Ian MacKaye, Keith Morris and members of Agnostic Front, Bad Brains and Cro-Mags to give the book a rare "Then-And-Now" perspective.
xXx Fanzine isn't just a look back at hardcore's salad days, but a unique look at how punk's music and message shook the mainstream itself.
