With this, the second story written about books in a matter of hours, you may be scratching your head wondering if your beloved Dying Scene is turning into a Barnes and Nobles, but do not fear. I can assure you our focus is still music (head here for a DS exclusive track), however documenting the ‘ever-dying scene’ of punk, hardcore, etc. through literature is a unique feat. Singer for New Bomb Turks Eric Davidson has had exactly this undertaking for some time now, and his hard work is paying off in the form of We Never Learn, which chronicles the garage punk movement of the late 80’s and 90’s.
As a special treat to readers, with the purchase of this book, you receive a download card which lets you download a CD of 20 rare and unreleased tracks from bands featured in the book. For more information head to the book’s website here.
We Never Learn: The GunkPunk Undergut, 1988-2001 is set to hit stores June 1, 2010.
