Punk in Nyc's Lower East Side 1981-1991: Scene History Series, Vol 1
Ben Nadler (Author)
DescriptionMuch has been written about the glamorous and short-lived New York City punk rock scene of the late 1970s. Less has been written about the second-wave punk scene that followed in the 1980s. It took place largely outside of the established downtown clubs, in the streets and squats of the Lower East Side. This zine offers a glimpse into this important cultural moment, which has had such a lasting impact on American subcultures, from Hardcore, to Skinhead, to, most crucially, Anarcho-Punk. Drawing on both archival documents and original interviews, this zine explores the music of the era's bands and the scene is situated within a broader social context.
