Two New Books: "Radio Silence" &amp "Interrobang?!"


We are carrying two new books that are definitely worth your attention: Radio Silence and Interrobang?!
Radio Silence:

Radio Silence documents the ignored space between the Ramones and Nirvana through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where the hardcore community built on do-it-yourself ethics. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo have cataloged private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork, and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993. Unseen photos lay next to hand-made t-shirts and original artwork brought to life by the words of their creators and fans. Radio Silence includes over 500 images of unseen photographs, illustrations, rare records, t-shirts, and fanzines presented in a manner that abandons the aesthetic clichés normally employed to depict the genre and lets the subject matter speak for itself. Contributions by Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Peña, Rusty Moore, and Gavin Ogelsby with an essay by Mark Owens.


A collection of writings and interviews is edited by Sharon Cheslow ( Banned In DC contributor) and explores the relationship between musical traditions within a familial frame. Both the interviewers and interviewees present in this volume include Ian MacKaye, Cynthia Connolly, Sharon Cheslow and more.
