Reviews

"A great oral history book.""The New York Times" "A fittingly bare-bones book, with fifty-two short chapters and no editorializing from the author. But the story it tells is not a simple one: this was, to quote the title of Cro-Mags first album, an 'age of quarrel.' "The New Yorker" ""NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990" is an essential document, which will be the go-to reference for all fans of extreme styles of music. It started here.""The Huffington Post" A new oral history from crucial local imprint Bazillion Points, tells the tale of Agnostic Front, Cro-Mags, Reagan Youth and the myriad other bands that helped put the scene on the map. "Time Out New York" "In a word: essential.""Terrorizer" (9/10 review) "Rettman's exhaustive recounting includes tidbits from literally everyone who was anyone in the NYHC scene, making it invaluable punk rock history and the perfect companion to Legs McNeil's "Please Kill Me.""The Austin Chronicle" An excellent history. "Austin American-Statesman" "A journey into the heart of the chaos A success.""The Wire" Made up from over a hundred interviews conducted by Rettman and wielding over 500 images, the tome will delight both the New York hardcore nerd and novice alike as it careens through the scene s early days with the likes of Agnostic Front, Reagan Youth, The Mob, Urban Waste, and Cause For Alarm right into the late 80s heyday of Cro-Mags, Murphy s Law, Youth of Today, Underdog, and Sick of it All. "VICE/Noisey" I m floored! Tony Rettman s NYHC is by far one of the most informative looks at New York hardcore. An amazing read loaded with remnants of my life and a movement I truly adore. Hardcore lives! Roger Miret, Agnostic Front Thank you Tony Rettman! Great book! So much fun to read everybody s take on our great history. So proud to be a part! Mike Judge, Judge/Youth of Today/Death Before Dishonor "A great read"Paul Cripple, Reagan Youth "Kudos to you for so wonderfully addressing and bringing to life once again NYC's almost lost, important history in rock music."Denise Mercedes, Stimulators "A triumphant celebration of an often maligned but hugely influential scene and I cannot recommend it enough.""Mass Movement" " "A great oral history book."--"The New York Times" "A fittingly bare-bones book, with fifty-two short chapters and no editorializing from the author.
