NEW! "Spoke" (Akashic Books)

Sold Out

Beautifully designed 10" x 10" hard cover book featuring anecodotes from members of the DC punk scene (Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, HR, Dave Grohl, John Stabb, Brian Baker, Tesco Vee, many others) and those interviewed for the "Salad Days" documentary (132 pages).

This volume serves as a visual and narrative companion to Salad Days, a 2014 documentary, also by Crawford, that explores the 1980s Washington, D.C., hardcore punk scene. Like the film, the book sheds light on the ways in which the music coming out of the nation’s capital, by bands such as Bad Brains and Fugazi, served as a mode of political and economic critique. -Publishers Weekly
