Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991

13.60

Publisher Marketing: This is the never-before-told story of the musical revolution that happened right under the nose of the Reagan Eighties--when a small but sprawling network of bands, labels, fanzines, radio stations, and other subversives re-energized American rock with punk rock's do-it-yourself credo and created music that was deeply personal, often brilliant, always challenging and immensely influential. This sweeping chronicle of music, politics, drugs, fear, loathing and faith has been recognized as an indie rock classic in its own right. 

Among the bands profiled: Mission of Burma, Butthole Surfers, The Minutemen, Sonic Youth, Black Flag, Big Black, Husker Du, Fugazi, Minor Threat, Mudhoney, The Replacements, Beat Happening, and Dinosaur Jr.
