'Trapped In A Scene: UKHC 1985-1989' Book Due In September

"Trapped In A Scene: UKHC 1985-1989", a new book by renowned British author Ian Glasper, documents the history of the British hardcore scene. Weighing in at well over 250,000 words and with over 200 exclusive photos included, it is a must for anyone interested in the '80s British underground.

Amazon.com's description of the book reads as follows: "The underground hardcore scene of the mid-to-late 1980s was U.K. punk rock's last significant creative gasp. Emerging from the wreckage of the anarcho-punk scene spawned by the likes of CRASS and CONFLICT, it took its influences from the studs 'n' leather punk bands of the early 1980s such as DISCHARGE and GBH. These bands pushed musical boundaries into new avenues of extremity, helping to shape the alternative music scene of today. 'Trapped In A Scene' is the long-awaited closing volume of Ian Glasper's celebrated trilogy on the U.K. punk scene of the 1980s."
