THEM PUNX ARE BACK IN TOWN!!
This is a very SPECIAL EPISODE of Cinepunx, and by “special” we mean incomplete. NOT BECAUSE OUR GUEST, TONY RETTMAN, AUTHOR AND PUNK EXPERT IS NOT AMAZING! Dude rules. No, it is ’cause our beloved Joshua Alavarez could not join us.
DO NOT FRET! Friend of the show, booker, artist, and MAN ABOUT TOWN, Evan Vellela, was available to stand in. Granted, I talk a LOT so I did most of the talking, but it was still cool. Hey, we forgot to take pictures so here are some older pictures with Tony in them (Cover photo by Greg Pallante)
Tony is a writer whose last three books have chronicled specific aspects of the hardcore punk scene. His latest book, STRAIGHT EDGE: A CLEAR HEADED HARDCORE PUNK HISTORY, is the first expansive oral history of the movement. Tony has previously written NYHC: NEW YORK HARDCORE 1980-1990 and Why Be Something That You’re Not: Detroit Hardcore 1979-1985
He also previously appeared on episode 49 of THIS VERY PODCAST!!
Tony decided we would discuss 2017’s Girls Trip, a movie I fucking loved, so glad for that. We also spent a good deal of time discussing his new book and his process.
