Burning Fight: The Nineties Hardcore Revolution In Ethics, Politics, Spirit, And Sound
Although some define hardcore as a very specific sound, most believe it's more than that; a set of varying ideas, ethics, principles, attitudes and, yes, music, that converge to form a community.
Burning Fight: The Nineties Hardcore Revolution In Ethics, Politics, Spirit, And Sound by Brian Peterson provides some answers, but also brings up a whole new set of questions for those who've been drawn to the hardcore scene's political, social, ethical, and spiritual ideas amidst the screaming vocals and abrasive chords. Burning Fight features commentary from approximately 150 people involved in the nineties hardcore scene, as well as oral history articles about politics, vegetarianism, cultures like straight edge, and interviews with a variety of influential bands such as Avail, Burn, Earth Crisis, Inside Out, Integrity, Los Crudos, Spitboy, Strife, Texas Is The Reason, Unbroken, and more.
