Summary

A small-town Florida teenager discovers punk rock through a loaned mix tape, and punk music and culture slowly takes over all aspects of his life. 

His new passion causes him to form a band, track down out-of-print records he loves and reissue them, open a record store, start a record distribution operation as a public service, mentor a host of young musicians, and befriend all manner of punk luminaries along the way. 

Slowly his life's pursuit pushes him to the point of personal ruination and, ultimately, redemption.

American Hardcore

As an old punk myself who collected early UK vinyl at various times during my life it was a fascinating read but from an American perspective.

Some of the bands mentioned were unfamiliar which led me to do some research as well.

Enjoyed the addition of a track every so often as well.
