Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground | Michael Azerrad
Originally published in 2001, Our Band Could be Your Life remains THE book you should read if you have an interest in the US underground music scene of the Reagan era 1980s.
Michael Azzerad writes passionately about the musical revolution that pushed innovative, punk-inspired, hard touring, DIY bands like Hüsker Dü, Black Flag, The Minutemen, Fugazi and Mudhoney into the spotlight. Here is the network - the bands, labels, fanzines, radio stations and venues - that brought the American indie underground to roaring life.
This book, a bona fide indie rock classic, could be your life.
