the film AMER­I­CAN HARD­CORE (PAUL RACH­MAN, 2006)

compiled of clips sent in by the bands them­selves, this film fol­lows the 1980s’ emer­gence of US hard­core – in­clud­ing Bad Brains, D.o.a., mi­nor threat, Black Flag and more – along­side in­ter­views with Phil anselmo, henry rollins, and red hot chili Pep­pers’ Flea, all of whom owe the genre a great cre­ative debt.

the book SOBER LIV­ING FOR THE REV­O­LU­TION: HARD­CORE PUNK, STRAIGHT EDGE, AND RAD­I­CAL POL­I­TICS (GABRIEL KUHN, 2010)

many hard­core purists pro­mote a drug- and drink-free life­style as part of their de­vo­tion to the scene. this es­sen­tial guide to the straight-edge sub­cul­ture will give you the know-how to im­press even the old­est hard­core head, re­gard­less of whether you’re ready to take the so­bri­ety plunge your­self.

the fanzine TOUCH AND GO: THE COM­PLETE HARD­CORE PUNK SCENE ’79 - ’83 (STEVE MILLAR, 2010)

Scrappy, home­made zines are per­haps the best way to un­der­stand the in­clu­sive, do-it- your­self spirit of hard­core. twenty-two is­sues of early Touch And Go zines compiled in one pa­per­back, this col­lec­tion cap­tures the scene at its most vi­brant and hap­haz­ard, and will soon bring you up to speed with the roots of the sound.
