Spoke: Images and Stories from the 1980s Washington, DC Punk Scene

Punk

"Scott Crawford, the man behind the acclaimed documentary Salad Days, has given us another taste of the best-kept secret of 80s in his new book Spoke: Washington DC’s hardcore punk scene."
Dazed

"This volume serves as a visual and narrative companion to Salad Days, a 2014 documentary, also by Crawford, that explores the 1980s Washington, D.C., hardcore punk scene. Like the film, the book sheds light on the ways in which the music coming out of the nation’s capital, by bands such as Bad Brains and Fugazi, served as a mode of political and economic critique."
Publishers Weekly

Praise for the film Salad Days:

"Acts not only as a musical primer but as a monument to a moment: when punk was both a way to find kinship with like-minded oddballs and a tool for fighting issues like racism and economic disparity."
?Rolling Stone

"An enlightening documentary."
?New York Times

"A sharp exploration into what made DC punk tick, and how it continues to inspire."
?MTV News
