Review: American Hardcore: A Tribal History

User Review  - Matt Young - Goodreads

Before punk became "safe" and before the Misfits skull was plastered on everything, this genre had a REAL edge. This book chronicles the birth (and deaths) of American Punk in its earliest and purest form. There are good pictures to accompany good anecdote as well. I recommend to any fan of music.

User Review  - James Henry - Goodreads

Depressing but jam packed with info and a great discography. I came to punk rock / hardcore in the mid 80's and my little Southern scene was no where near as violent. An interesting time that will never be repeated. Read full review

User Review  - Stephen Baker - Goodreads

The georgraphic organization rather than temporal takes some getting used to, but works for the idea of hardcore as a tribal culture. Also, makes clear the division between "punk" favored by the Brits and American artists and the hardcore championed by DIY middle class kids. Read full review

A great book about the history of the first generation of Hardcore Punk. Too Mr. Blush asks for information/contributions of the history to include in future editions and then ignores people that try and accommodate his request. Read full review

User Review  - Dennis! - Goodreads

This isn't a book that should be read once and then put away. This also isn't a book that should be read in its entirety in one sitting--you'd be doing a disservice to yourself! Read full review
