This Could Be Everywhere: An Analysis of Radical Politics in American Hardcore Punk: 1980-1986

By Luke Henderson

A couple good friends of Lost Tribe put together this book.  It’s an academic look at politics of one of the most infamous and active periods of hardcore/punk.  For fans of 1980s hardcore, reading, books, anarchism, socialism, footnotes, words.

From back cover:

“It was not always pretty, it didn’t always work out the way it was planned, but the principles and beliefs upon which 1980s hardcore punk was developed, coupled with the unique structure and organization of the movement, allowed this music-based culture to actively and openly reject fundamental tenets of the social, political, and economic orders of the United States. That is to say, the creation of radical music, the development, of a musical scene that adhered to a strict do-it-yourself ethic, and the lived expression of anti-capitalist political beliefs, situated hardcore punk rock as a particularly subversive experiment between 1980 and 1986.” – This Could Be Everywhere
