Media: Clear-Headed Hardcore Punk History
While you're preparing to begin to think about procrastinating your upcoming Best of 2017 lists, I want to dangle in front of you Tony Rettman's brand new STRAIGHT EDGE: A Clear-Headed Hardcore Punk History , a 400-page oral history of 35 years of one of punk rock's most enduring subcultures.
Released on November 14, the book is already in its second printing. Launch events last week at the Sonos NYC store and Bridge 9 Records in Boston were mobbed, and this upcoming weekend Rettman will hit the road for a book event in Asbury Park, NJ, where he will sit for a Q&A with Minor Threat's Brian Baker.
Book excerpts have appeared on the No Echo and Red Bull Music Academy sites, with more to come from Decibel magazine and Kerrang! in the U.K. Meanwhile, the book's Instagram page @straightedgebook has garnered nearly 5,000 followers, many of whom have been making "book of the year" noises, which is music to our ears and the reason we're presumptuous enough to float this suggestion in the first place.
Please consider the book with all your might. We'll even be happy to show it to you if that helps. Thank you, and thanks for reading books in 2017 !
