Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback comes the story of the musical revolution that happened right under the nose of the Reagan Eighties, when a small but sprawling network of bands--including Black Flag, the Minutemen, Sonic Youth, and Beat Happening--reenergized American rock. 13 photos.

Synopsis:

The story of post-punk indie rock in America and the bands whose do-it-yourself ethic paved the way for the grunge phenomenon of the 1990s. Beginning with the pioneering and notorious punk band, Black Flag, the story continues with Husker Du, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and others.

Synopsis:

This is the story of post-punk indie rock in America and the bands whose do-it-yourself ethic paved the way for the grunge phenomenon of the 1990s. Without major label support, these bands depended on resourcefulness and creativity to survive.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 503-505) and index.
