Description

The Washington, DC, punk scene of the 1980s gave birth to bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat and Fugazi. Here that scene is portrayed in its purest form: an oral history by the creators themselves, including nearly 200 photographs capturing the power and spirit of this politically progressive corner of American underground music. Features rare images from Jim Saah, Cynthia Connolly, Lucian Perkins and other talented photographers of bands including Bad Brains, Teen Idles, Minor Threat, Faith, Fugazi, Soulside, Shudder to Think, Nation of Ulysses, Dag Nasty, Jawbox, Swiz, King Face and more.
