    One thought on “Banned in D C: Photos and Anecdotes from the DC Punk Underground”

    1. My initial review of this was 15160 characters - 5160 over the limit. I have to cut out over a 3rd of it. Looking thru it is like looking at a high school yrbk that's for the outcasts & rebels. Around 1972, when we were both 19, John Duchac & I went to a concert called The End of the World Show. A group played that I sometimes credit w/ being Baltimore's 1st punk band: The Grand Poobah Subway. The latter were completely irreverant, they used styrofoam guitar props that they destroyed. It [...]

    2. the "companion" book to dance of days. if you only like picture books than look at this one and skip reading the aformentioned dod. cool pics of all the old dc legends 'back in the day' (when they had hair and no guts)

    3. this is mostly a photo book and partly an oral history of the dc punk scene in the early '80s, and it's basically just okay. there are some great photos of some great bands, like minor threat, rites of spring, and bad brains, but for the most part, and this is supported by the chosen quotes they've pulled, the book is VERY scene specific, going even beyond just focusing on the dc scene to really seeming more like a scrapbook for a group of friends. it's a relatively worthwhile chronicle for fans [...]

    4. A labor of love, this completely DIY compendium collects snapshots and anecdotes from one the nation's most unique and influential music scenes and recalls a bygone era of wholly handmade culture. The (now) new 7th edition includes an afterword by Cynthia Connolly that the uninitiated should probably read first. There is still no UPC code and she continues to publish and distribute the book herself!

    5. I wish I could say the nostalgia provoked by Clague was insufferable. I can't however, because I was oblivious to this scene. Right place, right time, attention in all the wrong places. Thanks to Clague, I get a real sense of what my peers with sharper taste were experiencing and the fundamental place it has in what I later came to love.

    6. This collection of pictures and stories is more or less a must-have for fans of early Dischord-era harDCore. It takes place in DC in the early 80's, and it's one of those books that make you feel like you were born in the wrong era. I would have enjoyed more insights from the editor herself instead of purely quotes from the bands & their fans, but I guess that's not what she was going for.

    7. when you're late to the game you can always benefit from someone else's memories. thank god some people are nice enough to share them.
