Our Band Could Be Your Life

In Manchester on Sunday i went to Waterstones with the intention of buying a book chronicling the rise of Hardcore Punk, the journey from crusty, gutter punk ethics to what was unquestionably one of the most important independant art movements of the decade.

I came out with Michael Azerrad's 'Our Band Could Be Your Life' which delves into a river of anicdotal scenes springing from 13 bands and their uncompromising shared dream to push hardcore punk to the very forefront of what it could be. The plethora of bands featured weighs in with some big names such as Black Flag, Minor Threat, The Minutemen & Sonic Youth. It really is a yard stick in music journalism, voted by the guardian as one of the 50 greatest music books ever written.

It all comes from a brilliant journalist who already gave us the likes of Come As Your Are: The Story Of Nirvana
