Anti Matter Anthology A 1990s Post Punk and Hardcore Reader (out of print)
Anti-Matter offers a fascinating and earnest glimpse into the lives of the artists themselves: A straight-edge punk icon admits to straying from his teetotal principles. A multiplatinum rock star divulges the point that his own celebrity brought him to tears. The guitarist of a lyrically uplifting hardcore band discusses his failed suicide attempt. These are the kinds of stories that weave the fabric of The Anti-Matter Anthology ? a definitive collection of interviews from the fanzine that inspired thousands of young punks in their own self-discovery ? featuring revealing conversations with FUGAZI's Ian MacKaye, RANCID, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's Zack de la Rocha, SNAPCASE, JAWBOX, photographer Glen E. Friedman, SICK OF IT ALL, QUICKSAND, and the late Elliott Smith, to name a few.
