See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody
By Bob Mould, 403 pgs.
By Mark Twistworthy

See A Little Light… isn’t simply a biography of a musician, but instead a biography of a gay man struggling to find his identity and who just happened to be the primary singer/songwriter of one of the most influential punk bands of the ‘80s.

Fine Fine Music
By Cassie J. Sneider, 135 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

A collection of humorous personal essays by a funny young lady.

Deep Green Resistance
By Aric Mcbay, Lierre Keith and Derrick Jensen, 556 pgs.
By Steve Hart

To be clear, they are not asking us to “like” environmental causes on Facebook. Instead, the challenge is to take the environmental destruction of the planet with all the seriousness it demands and meet these challenges head-on.

Rest Is Propaganda, The
By Steve Ignorant (with Steve Pottinger), 300 pgs.
By Kevin Dunn

Each chapter...revolve around specific issues (e.g., School, Sex, Fans, Violence)...). The effect of this approach is not unlike having each chapter function as a delicious snack.

By Derrick Jensen, 302 pgs.
By Steve Hart

It drives home deeply that there is a serious crisis modern civilization is facing but does allow for hope and a solution.

Flying Saucers Rock’n’roll: Conversations with Unjustly Obscure Rock’n’Soul...
Edited by Jake Austin, 284 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

This book is a collection of ten interviews and articles from Roctober’s span...By the end of each, I wanted to check out the interviewee’s music and I felt like I had an unprecedented, candid glimpse into their lives.

Creeps abound in this terror trip to the docks, but oh what fun it is.

We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, 1988-2001
By Eric Davidson, 351 pgs.
By Mark Twistworthy

“Gunk punk”? Sorry, man. The term “garage rock” works just fine.

Skipping towards Gomorrah: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Pursuit of Happiness in
By Dan Savage, paperback, 302 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

What makes Dan such an effective social commentator is not just his quick wit, but his ability to combine human compassion with pointed, unrelenting rational argumentation. Skipping towards Gomorrah is not sentimental, even though it is grounded in personal context.

Please Don’t Bomb the Suburbs
By William “Upski” Wimsatt, 205 pgs.
By Lauren Trout

The main theme in this book is growing up, personally and politically. Some of you might refer to it as “selling out,” but Wimsatt begs to differ.

Manchild #5 fills in the history of COC with interviews featuring members of the band, various audience members, and band members from Honor Role and Ugly Americans amongst others, and is liberally peppered with Walsby’s comics of special events.

This guide takes the realm of DIY guides to the next level and makes those other guides seem like kid’s stuff.

Hit the Ground Stumbling
By Nate Gangelhoff
By Daryl Gussin

More Carswellian than Cometbus, the pages replace nostalgia for questions, and he doesn’t claim to have all the answers.

Cheetah Chrome: A Dead Boy’s Tale from the Front Lines of Punk Rock
By Cheetah Chrome, 368 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

The tone is humble and matter-of-fact. If you’re expecting a tortured, grandiose, or “punk rock” style, you’ll probably be disappointed. For me, it was a refreshing and riveting rock autobiography that I’ll proudly display between Lemmy’s White Line Fever and Tim Russert’s Big Russ & Me on my bookshelf.

Things Are Meaningless
Al Burian, perfect bound comic, over 100 un-numbered pgs.
By Todd Taylor

If you get wet reading the Utne Reader, or think that The Shipping News was riveting, Al’s right up your alley.

Sex & Guts #4
Edited by Gene Gregorits and Lydia Lunch, $20, 280 pages
By Jimmy Alvarado

Feels like you’re eavesdropping on a private conversation at your favorite watering hole between two friends who happen to be discussing snuff films, Mexican death magazines, and the agony of getting Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas made into a film.

by Daniel and Gabriel Cohn-Bendit, paperback, 239 pages.
By Maddy

Danny the Red and his brother Gabriel’s account of the events of May 68.

Devil’s Midnight
by Yuri Kapralov, hardcover, 292 pages
By Maddy

I know enough punks, myself included, who read way more non-fiction than fiction. Devil’s Midnight and Akashic Books are a good reason for that to change.

A New World in Our Hearts
Edited by Roy San Filippo, paperback, 139 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

The sad truth of the matter is that some people are not smarter than their televisions.

Stand Up, Ernie Baxter: You’re Dead
by Adam Voith, 251 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

It’ll hook you and keep you reading, and it’s exciting to see such a high quality novel come out of a purely DIY effort.

Sci-Fi Western
Curated by Sunny Buick, 96 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Fancy-assed art book, worth flipping through. Immaculately laid out.
