Summary "The Washington, DC music scene of the 1980s gave birth to influential bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Fugazi. Here that era is portrayed in its purest form: an oral history by the creators themselves, including nearly two hundred photographs capturing the power and spirit of this politically progressive corner of American underground music. This stunning and intimate collection features rare images from Jim Saah, Cynthia Connolly, Bert Queiroz, and many others who documented this vibrant community. Compiled by Scott Crawford--whose critically acclaimed film Salad days provided an unprecedented exploration into the 1980s DC punk scene--Spoke delves deeper into one of the most dynamic movements in US music history"--Back cover.
