Major Threats: Rare Photos from the Early Days of D.C. Hardcore

  • Photo by: Lucian Perkins

Stick some smart, passionate kids near the halls of power and you'll probably end up with some amazing punk. Proof of that can be seen in Hard Art, DC 1979, a photobook featuring the work of D.C.-based lensman Lucian Perkins. (Henry Rollins contributes an essay.) As the title suggests, the tome collects striking images of the likes of Bad Brains, Trenchmouth, and other firebrands from the early days of the city's soon-to-be-thriving punk scene.
