Auction Item #6 – MULTIPLE SIGNED COPIES of Going Underground!!!

An illustrated and wide-ranging survey of the underground U.S. punk scene in the 1980s The product of decades of work and multiple self-published editions, “Going Underground,” written by 1980s scene veteran George Hurchalla, is the most comprehensive look yet at America s nationwide underground punk scene. Despite the misguided mainstream press declarations that punk died with Sid Vicious or that punk was reborn with Nirvana, Hurchalla followed the DIY spirit of punk underground, where it not only survived but thrived nationally as a self-sustaining grassroots movement rooted in seedy clubs, rented fire halls, xeroxed zines, and indie record shops. Rather than dwell on well-documented suspects and trendsetters from LA, NY, and DC, Hurchalla delves deep into the underground s underbelly to root out stories from Chicago, Philadelphia, Austin, Lawrence, Annapolis, Cincinnati, Florida, and elsewhere. Like most of the truly great books on punk that have emerged to date, Hurchalla mixes his personal experiences with the words of dozens of band members, promoters, artists, zinesters, and scenesters. This revised second edition includes new photos, zine scans, and flyer collections from around the United States.”



Folks,  I was digging through some boxes in the punk rock archive aka The Garage.  I found a stash of Make An Effort shirts in Xl, 2XL, and 3XL. So, for folks looking for those sizes, hit me up and buy a shirt.  They’re $20 a piece  Help out John and Mina!
