Release Date And More Details On xXx Fanzine (1983-1988) Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties

Bridge Nine Records has finally issued an official release date and a better look into xXx Fanzine‘s upcoming comprehensive book looking into how 1980’s hardcore and punk grew into a force of nature through the lens of Boston’s influential zine.

The book is an ultra fancy hardcover compiling highlights from the run of the zine as well as re-interviews with a handful of notable legends some thirty years later. There are some awfully big names here, and rare documentation from hardcore’s infant stages, so you might want to sit down… Ian MacKaye, Roger Miret, Keith Morris, Henry Rollins, Choke from Slapshot, Rick Jones from Jerry’s Kids, Void, Cro-Mags, Bad Brains, Articles of Faith, Misfits, Necros, Suicidal Tendencies, Husker Du, D.O.A., G.B.H, Negative Approach, 7 Seconds, D.Y.S., Scream, Corrosion of Conformity, Minutemen, The Exploited, Anthrax, Subhumans, Dead Kennedys, SSD, Descendents,  Youth of Today, Motorhead, Dag Nasty, Snapshot, Samhain, Bad Religion, Fugazi, and more.

Of course, there will be an accompanying 19 song compilation featuring covers of the most legendary and rudimentary songs of the era by currently active contemporaries.  Just look at the track listing:
