As previously teased, New York’s Bazillion Points Publishing are readying an amazing book titled “WE GOT POWER!: Hardcore Punk Scenes From 1980s Southern California“, by Jordan Schwartz and David Markey. It’s the first book depicting the early 80s LA hardcore punk explosion that launched the ADOLESCENTS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, MINUTEMEN, and more great acts.
The book contains all issues of classic SoCal punk zine WE GOT POWER, as well as essays by people like Keith Morris, Henry Rollins and Pat Fear, and also almost 400 photos from the very beginning of SoCal hardcore punk. It really is the definite story of the scene as told by the people who lived it. More info on the book can be found at this location.
The book is scheduled for an October release. Stay tuned!
