Lab Overview

Deluxe box set version of Nathan Nedorostek's Radio Silence. This set also includes a first pressing of Radio Silence signed by 20 - 30 contributors(!), an exclusive shirt featuring a vintage photo of H.R. from Bad Brains, a 10 1/2" x 14" print of the cover, a zine about making the cover, and a 1987 Schizm Records Poll photocopy. Now for our original review of the book - First, let's acknowledge the irony in this impressive visual document of the hardcore scene being published by MTV, who would never in a million years play any of these bands on their channel. That said, wow. Not just another book of mosh pit and shirtless double-clutch screaming into a microphone photography (though there is a bit of that, too), authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo - lifelong hardcore fans both - have exhaustively documented the "style" of the era in a clean, concise fashion. Photos of ancient t-shirt and patch-covered leather jackets, scans of impossibly rare 7" pic discs and cassette covers, stickers, handwritten postcards from label owners - everything which embodies the hardcore/DIY aesthete is here except for the music itself (and let's face it, they were equally important). If you ever doodled the Minor Threat sheep on a notebook, dreamt of hitting up CBGB or ABC No Rio to see an all-day show, or were briefly "edge" in middle school, there's lots to be interested in here. Softcover; 10.7" x 7.2"; 224 pages.
