XXx Fanzine (1983-1988), Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties isn't merely a collection of articles, reviews and photographs from one of Hardcore America's best-known fanzines. It's a chronicle of punk's evolution in the '80s: a story of music and ideologies in motion. xXx's story picks up while the frst wave of hardcore was in full swing. Major players including MINOR THREAT had already released landmark records and bands were loading up station wagons to play now infamous venues like The Channel, A7 or D.C. Space. While based in Boston, xXx's main writer and editor, Mike Gitter, not only concentrated on his own city's burgeoning scene, spearheaded by bands like S.S. DECONTROL and D.Y.S., but looked to other states and countries for xXx's reportage. This 288 page book documents a time when hardcore and punk were not mutually exclusive and bands and cities had a chance to develop their own diverse and strident sounds. This creative ethos and aural zeitgeist is literally spelt out on the 19-song compilation that's included with xXx Fanzine, a limited-edition 12 (available exclusively through mail-order or special sales outlets). A wide variety of current hardcore, punk and hard music luminaries including STRIFE, LETLIVE, FU MANCHU and THE RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS contributed their interpretations to some of the most in?uential songs to come from xXx's original era. Strife - Who Are You? (Void), Done Dying - Blending in (Government Issue), Letlive - Fix Me (Black Flag), Trial - Money (Embrace), H2O - Safe (Dag Nasty), Nomads - How When and Where / the Eliminator (Cruxifix / Agnostic Front), Walter Schriefels - Society Suckers (Agnostic Front), Tombs - Kiss of Steel (Samhain), Voivod - Man in the Trees (Die Kreuzen), Æges - Hungry Child (Corrosion of Conformity), Last Light - a Wish to Dream (Uniform Choice), Fuck You Pay Me - Religious Wars (Subhumans), Jesse Leech - Salad Days (Minor Threat), Shai Hulud - Raw Power (Raw Power), True Rivals - Coolidge (Descendents), Fu Manchu - When the Shit Hits the Fan (Circle Jerks), Gallows - the Possibility of Life's Destruction (Discharge), American Nightmare - It's the Limit (Cro-Mags), Riverboat Gamblers - Hate the Police (The Dicks)
