Adult Crash 2 ( a hardcore / punk photobook ) plus 7" ( Violent Reaction / Barge / Nightbirds / G. Warning )
Adult Crash 2... the follow-up to 2008's Adult Crash hardcore/punk photobook. This 2nd book is bigger than the first, with 144 pages of photos & anecdotes, compared to the 1st Adult Crash that was only 88 pages. The first book was all photos taken by me, Dave Brown, starting in the late-80's. The new book is a compilation of photos taken by photographers from both coasts, going back to the early 80’s. Chris Boarts Larson (Slug & Lettuce Fanzine), Ken Salerno (Thrasher Magazine/NYHC book), Joe Henderson (Flipside/Ink Disease Magazine), Al Quint (Suburban Voice Fanzine), and MANY others contributed photos... with many of these rare/unseen images in book-form for the very 1st time, along with some (in)famous images you'll recognize from records in your collection, too. Over 250 photos spanning over 30 years. The book also contains anecdotes written by musicians, photographers, and other notable people from the punk/hardcore scene. Eerie Von from Samhain/Danzig, Kevin Seconds from 7 Seconds, John Stabb from Government Issue, Ron Guardipee from Brotherhood/Overkill Records, Theo Kogan from The Lunachicks, Matt Warnke from Bold, Chris Daily from Smorgasbord Records, and other folks wrote about what the adult crash means to them. Also included with the new book is a 4-track 7” featuring VIOLENT REACTION, BARGE, NIGHT BIRDS, and GOVERNMENT WARNING. Each band covers a song by an older band that influenced their sound, and all songs are unreleased/exclusive to this 7”.
