S soon fired up Xerox machines themselves and the rest is history So is the legendary independent record label launched from this zine and so are the bands covered inside Black Flag Minor Threat the Misfits Negative Approach the Fix the Avengers the Necros Discharge Iron Cross Youth Brigade Faith Die Kreuzen Crucifix Poison Idea and all the other punks worth their weight in glorious black and whit. Wow a lot to say about this book This stuff was a few years before my time and a couple hundred miles to the north and I never saw an issue in person until now but I remember hearing a lot of the gossip and news from these zines handed down to us kids in Cincinnati as gospel and of course after the zine folded the record label sold me a lot of records and honestly probably had a lot to do with me moving to Chicago after collegeFirst off it s awesome that stuff like this comes out to show just how stupid and confused suburban teenage punks were in the 80s There are loads of books written about the big scenes in LA and NYC and DC and those people have a lot of time and money invested in keeping their legends larger than life and they ve found ways to rewrite the history with 2020 hindsight to make it seem like every night was magical and everyone in town was united behind a single movement all working together to get some message or other across and it was all planned out and they stood up to the man and they had it all figured outBut a book like this really shows you what things were really like and continued to be like when I was into this stuff a few years later and probably are still like Everyone was immature and self important everyone was making gay jokes and dick jokes and talking shit about anyone they felt threatened by I mean there s several clear examples of Tesco and DS picking fights with people they clearly idolized who d bent over backwards for them just to get attention and look like they knew than anyone else There are some truly stupid opinions in this book and for all the Punk is all that matters talk some of the topbottom 40 lists are completely out of whack from a historical perspective On the other hand it s honest in a way that doesn t happen when people are allowed to rewrite their legends and there s plenty of good insight too and a sense of humor and industriousness that is pretty rare these daysTo be fair in the thankfully small amount of modern commentary from Tesco Vee he says these same things he s still a man child maybe but he s learned a few things over the years I say thankfully small not because I wouldn t like to read of Tesco s reflections but editing and notation would have derailed the book It seems like a lot of their dumb feuds are still going on though they seem to have convinced Henry Rollins to write a few words under the premise that the book was about the label If you can love Keith Morris even though he still bitches about Greg Ginn you ll power through Tesco s rantsSo in summary it s a bunch of immature offensive bullshit that overstates the importance of a handful of dorks in a small town but it s good reading and at least it s a direct source and not based on 30 years of revisionismThe hardest part is remembering how important this stuff was to all of us and how much effort people put into it and how nothing we do now has this much passion behind it A stack of immature offensive bullshit photocopied collated and mailed around the world to a carefully hand picked mailing list in small batches is still WAY cooler than the immature offensive bullshit we all chuck on the web today The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy every night was magical and Complete Amber Sourcebook everyone in town was united behind a single movement all working together to get some message or other across and it was all planned out and they stood up to the man and they had it all figured outBut a book like this really shows you what things were really like and continued to be like when I was into this stuff a few years later and probably are still like Everyone was immature and self important Jadę sobie.
