Why Be Something That You're Not - First Look

Just a quick post here tonight and it's another one on the Why Be Something That You're Not Detroit HC book. Tony swooped down from NY to pick up the books from his parents house in PA and stopped by my house to drop one off. Although I haven't gotten chance to read much yet, I gotta say, it looks incredible. 242 pages jam packed with anything and everything you'd ever want to know about the Detroit hardcore scene from 1979-1985. Chris Alpino did a great job on the layouts and dropped in an ample mix of photos, flyers and ads to really spice the whole package up. If you're a fan of Negative Approach, the Necros, the Fix, the Meatmen, etc., this thing is a must have. A big congrats to Tony on the release, I know he's put a lot of time, effort and pride into this and I hope everyone grabs a copy as soon as possible. Again, if you can make it out for the Negative Approach, DOA show at Asbury Lanes, Tony will have limited edition stamped books to sell for this show. Do it! -Tim DCXX

i'm dying to see the book in the flesh already! i hear the printer used a gloss varnish for the cover instead of a matte like we had asked for. not too happy about that. thanx for the kind words tho!
