Lucky for JS-NYC, thirty years on Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson have been kind enough to release this coffee table sized compendium of all the Touch And Go zine stuff, along with some essays and annotation from the author and old-schoolers like Brannon and MacKaye. Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '79-'83 comes out via the JS-NYC wet dream book purveyor Bazillion Points. You can get signed copies and all sorts of other awesomeness via this link. This book is a big 'un, so if you want to save on shipping, I'd try and find a local bookstore that can service you. NYCers can get a copy at Generation Records, but I had a hell of a time finding it anywhere else in town. I'll accept that this is kind of a niche thing, but it's not like we're in the greatest metropolis in the world or anything. No accounting for taste, I guess. Hear me now and believe me later: Do what you need to do and get this. Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '79-'83 is a must-have for any fan of punk and/or hardcore.
