Reviews

"The book s real strength comes from Chick s use of research and his ability to place Black Flag s story in a wider context. Whether he s writing about surf culture, skate culture, or the history of garage rock, Chick does so with authority, and he braids these loose asides beautifully into the facts of Black Flag s history." Adam Ellsworth, "The Arts Fuse"" "Chick's analytical and in-depth biography of the progenitors of SoCal Hardcore builds up to a page-turning, scene-setting climax. . . . Chick does a fine job of detailing the importance, influence and dedicated touring ethic of the band." --Alex Burrows, Classic Rock "Stevie Chick chronicles Black Flag from both ends, mapping how they careened from menacing, berserk, and beachcore outsiders to grizzly hardcore icons to bizarre, and sometimes boring, post-hardcore pioneers that chewed through miles, tours, members, and songs." --www.PopMatters.com "Chick's well-researched and readable book immerses the reader in Black Flag's world, recreating the violent yet creative atmosphere of the early Hardcore scene through new interviews with the band and their peers." --Mat Croft, Record Collector Translated: "An unrepeatable collection, also with more than 30 photos of the legendary band of photographers Glen E. Friedman, Edward Colver and others." --Staf Magazine "The book's real strength comes from Chick's use of research and his ability to place Black Flag's story in a wider context. Whether he's writing about surf culture, skate culture, or the history of garage rock, Chick does so with authority, and he braids these loose asides beautifully into the "facts" of Black Flag's history." --Adam Ellsworth, The Arts Fuse "Here is an exhaustive prequel to, followed by a more balanced re-telling of, Rollin's Get in the Van journal, chronicling [Black] Flag's emergence in suburban Hermosa Beach, . . . and how their ultra-harsh, hi-speed riffage sparked moshpit violence. . . . A gory, gobsmacking read." --Andrew Perry, MOJO
