An Oral History of Hardcore Punk

Pat Blashill, unpublished, 1995

NOTE: I conducted these interviews and more for a magazine story that never ran. What follows is a rough, incomplete edit of the piece. I held on to the tapes, and will be adding in interviews I did with SST producer Spot, Black Flag bassist Kira Roessler, Meat Puppets drummer Derrick Bostrom, Jody Foster's Army's Brian Bannon, plus more from Minuteman Mike Watt and the Big Boys' Tim Kerr.

Total word count of piece: 3873
