Radio Silence: A Selected Visual History of American Hardcore Music


Much like John Cusak’s character in High Fidelity, we at CH constantly wrestle with the proper way to organize our records. Alphabetical? Chronological? Emotional significance? RadioSilence2_small.jpg

Culled from the personal collections of hardcore luminaries and fans alike, many of the photos, letters, fliers and shirts have never been seen before. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo used their connections gained from coming up in the hardcore scene to reach out to the likes of Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Peña, Rusty Moore and Gavin Ogelsby to unearth an astounding collection of personal artifacts that tell the story of American hardcore like never before.


Due out in September, we got a sneak peak at CH HQ this week and we can't wait to get our hands on the finished product. You can find out more at Amazon or PowerHouse.
