Beginning with early the 80s Texas skatepunk scene, the book is a sprawling visual journal of a life lived on the road and after dark. Punk shows high and low, crusty experimental cinemas, freight train adventures, Mission School graffiti, impossibly obscure house shows, and art exhibits in the shadowy margins. It’s a mash up of subcultural documentation, from San Francisco to Shreveport, from Texas to Braddock Pennsylvania, a flash-lit scrapbook of an invisible vanguard, all shot on Tri-X film. Including: Butthole Surfers, Big Boys, Black Flag, City Museum, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Minutemen, Misfits, David Yow and more.
