'xXx Fanzine (1983-1988) Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties' Release Details Unveiled


In anticipation of the November 10 relase of “xXx Fanzine (1983-1988) Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties”, Bridge Nine has unveiled details for the album’s accompanying nineteen-song compilation, “Still Having Their Say”. Check out the track listing for the album, which features a variety of current hardcore, punk and hard music luminaries such as STRIFE, LETLIVE., FU MANCHU, THE RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS and more contributing their interpretations of some of the most influential songs to come from xXx‘s original era, below. Additionally, the bludgeoning cover of “How, When, Where” (CRUCIFIX), which seamlessly transitions into AGNOSTIC FRONT‘s crossover classic “The Eliminator” done by Los Angeles’s NOMADS for this compilation has surfaced.

“xXx Fanzine (1983-1988) Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties” is also comprised of a two-hundred-and-eighty-eight-page book that documents a time when hardcore and punk were not mutually exclusive and bands and cities had a chance to develop their own diverse and strident sounds. While based in Boston, xXx‘s main writer and editor, Mike Gitter, not only concentrated on his own city’s burgeoning scene, spearheaded by bands like SS DECONTROL and D.Y.S., but looked to other states and countries for xXx‘s reportage. Now, “xXx Fanzine (1983-1988), Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties” re-interviews countless bands and musical prime-movers including Ian MacKaye, Keith Morris and members of AGNOSTIC FRONT, BAD BRAINS and CRO-MAGS to give the book a rare “then and now” perspective. “xXx Fanzine (1983-1988), Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties” isn’t merely a look back at hardcore’s salad days, but a unique look at how punk’s music and message shook the mainstream itself. In addition to reproducing (and restoring) countless interviews and pages from the ‘zine, this is a chronicle of punk’s evolution in the ’80s; a story of music and ideologies in motion.

Additionally, pre-orders for a twnty-four-page mini-zine, which gives a taste of the madness of the “xXx Fanzine (1983-1988) Hardcore & Punk In The Eighties” have been posted here. More of companion piece than a preview, this zine features additional photographs and interviews that didn’t make the book as well as some crucial pieces lifted from the book itself.
