What happened
in-between the Ramones and Nirvana?

Hardcore music emerged just after the first wave of punk rock in the late 1970s. American punk kids who loved the speed and attitude of punk took hold of its spirit, got rid of the “live fast, die young” mind-set and made a brilliant revision: hardcore. The dividing line between punk and hardcore music was in the delivery: less pretense, less melody, more aggression and the lack of separation between audience and performer. This simple format and participatory ethos inspired countless kids to channel their angst into the genre. Yet, hardcore music has largely been overlooked by music history. But the genre occupies a massively important space in the evolution of popular music. Radio Silence documents the ignored space between the Ramones and Nirvana through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where this community built on do-it-yourself ethics thrived. The book catalogs private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork, and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993.
