URBAN STYLES - GRAFFITI IN NEW YORK HARDCORE Book Radio Raheem

Urban Styles: Graffiti in New York Hardcore is the first book from author/historian Freddy Alva. Urban Styles is a chronicle of the intersection of graffiti art and the NYHC scene of the 80s and 90s. Over 370 pages with many full-color photos and 40 interviews with legendary writers and artists like Mackie Jayson, REVS, MQ, Lukie Luke, LORD EZEC, STAK TFP, Chaka Malik, SANE SMITH and many more.

Urban Styles: Graffiti is a subterranean adventure back to a time when subcultures and underground movements blended seamlessly and went largely unnoticed by the mainstream world. Urban Styles deftly straddles the seemingly in congruent worlds of graffiti culture and the hardcore punk scene of the 1980s to tell the story of a unique moment in time when crossover between the two outlaw cultures was a common, if not heralded, occurrence. Urban Styles chronicles a gritty New York City and its boroughs while telling the stories of forgotten revolutionaries who were as familiar with stealth runs through train yards as they were slamming on the CBGB dance floor. Through an array of iconic images and first-hand accounts; interviews and essays, Alva compiles a history of youth culture that reinforces the connection between these two subcultures and shows the symbiotic influences shared by both hip-hop and hardcore. This tale is told through the eyes and memories of band members that were adept at wielding spray cans and the writers that represented New York Hardcore on the streets. Urban Styles features the voices of those who shaped both a sound and a movement and the visual iconography of a vibrant outburst of color amidst a greying, urban decay. A number of illuminating stories and examinations of culture are told by NYHC veterans like Chaka Malik, Mackie Jayson, Lord Ezec, Sacha Jenkins, and a host of others who populated the NYHC scene of the 1980s and 90s. Crews and members are represented as well, along with the first writers who played in bands. There is a plethora of exclusive images, most never seen before, and some done specifically for the book. It is a history culled from record and demo tape covers, flyers, t-shirts, and paintings that celebrates the union of these two uniquely New York street cultures and shines a spotlight on two artistic movements that have gone on to have world-wide influence on today s mainstream culture.

BURNING FIGHT

Book Rev Press

Although some define hardcore as a specific sound, most believe it's more than that: a set of varying ideas, ethics, principles, attitudes and, yes, music, that converge to form a community. 'Burning Fight: The Nineties Hardcore Revolution In Ethics, Politics, Spirit, And Sound' by Brian Peterson provides some answers, but also brings up a whole new set of questions for those who've been drawn to the scene's political, social, ethical and spiritual ideas amidst the screamed vocals and abrasive chords. 'Burning Fight' features commentary from approximately 150 participants from the nineties hardcore scene as well as oral history articles about straight edge, politics, vegetarianism and interviews with a variety of influential bands such as: Avail, Burn, Earth Crisis, Inside Out, Integrity, Los Crudos, Spitboy, Strife, Texas Is The Reason, Unbroken and more. 503 pages.

DREW CAROLAN

MATINEE: All Ages On The Bowery 1983-1985 book Radio Raheem

Between 1983 and 1985, New York City photographer Drew Carolan began photographing patrons of the now-infamous hardcore matinees that were going on at seminal underground music club CBGB. During the week, Carolan was working as an assistant to legendary portrait photographer Richard Avedon, and on weekends he set up a makeshift studio across the street from CBGB and intercepted kids on their way to the all-ages afternoon shows. The result is a collection of photographs capturing the beauty, vulnerability, and the unbridled energy of youth during the height of the Reagan years. The Bowery at that time was a true melting pot of downtrodden adults, underage hardcore punk kids, and people living on the fringes of society. Now, more than thirty years later, all of that has disappeared and a copacetic, prosperous, and gentrified element has taken its place. While the hardcore punk scene still thrives today, these photographs capture a time and place in history that no longer exists. Nearly two years in the making, Radio Raheem is proud to offer this collection of Carolan's photos in a beautiful 10" x 10", hardcover volume featuring nearly 150 pages of images.

HARLEY FLANAGAN

Hard-Core: Life Of My Own book Feral House

Harley Flanagan provides a fascinating memoir: a homeless child prodigy and family friend of Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg, at a young age he became close to many stars of the early punk rock scene such as Joe Strummer of The Clash and was taught to play bass by members of the famed punk band Bad Brains. He went on to start the notorious hardcore band Cro-Mags. Harley was never shy: making friends with important figures like Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead, defending himself in street battles and, most recently, finding media play and court battles after former band members betrayed their one-time friend and bandmate.

HRVST

: death Book Reflections

HRVST is not a music magazine / book. It´s not about telling you how a new record sounds or how the tour of our favorite band went. Instead we 'harvest' experiences, ideas and stories of people from the DIY music and art scene and produce a book that focuses on their individual stories and experiences, shedding light on a very up, close and personal level, building on a bigger, more complex and truthful picture of who they really are and what makes them the persons they are. Beyond the stage, beyond the canvas, beyond what you seem to know about them already. And in the end uniting them in one single topic per issue. The first publication of HRVST focuses on the topic of 'Death'. It contains diverse contributions by the likes of CHUCK RAGAN (known from Hot Water Music), ROB MORAN (Unbroken, Narrows), WESLEY EISOLD American Nightmare / Give Up The Ghost), STEVE BRODSKY (Cave In), EUGENE S. ROBINSON (Oxbow), CHRIS COLOHAN (Cursed, Left For Dead), GEERT VAN DER VELDE (Shai Hulud) among many, many others. 166 pages beautiful layed out and printed.
