From the beginning, this was an unrealistic project. We were given one year and asked to deliver 300 pages; we took three and turned in 800. We could have doubled the number and it would never have been enough. The history of Bay Area punk is too rich and weird and horrible and wonderful, and it is by no means over. Here’s a portion of the book and some extra chapters. We hope that you post up your own tales and images. Thanks to everyone who shared their stories with us.
