Welcome to our little page. We are very excited to get this thing off the ground. It's been two years since we've published our debut book; "No Slam Dancing, No Stage Diving, No Spikes: An Oral History of the Legendary City Gardens" and we are ready to get back in the game. While still writing, we've decided to push forth with this publishing company. We aim to find an eclectic group of authors and present the world with an alternative to traditional writing and publishing. We plan to run this thing punk rock style; sort of like an indie label where all our artists/writers have full control over their projects. We hope to provide a platform for those important voices that we feel need to be heard. We're kicking it off with what we think will be a stellar offering from a good friend of ours, Freddy Alva. Freddy has been a fixture of the New York Hardcore scene since the '80s and has produced several seminal works, most notably the New Breed compilation tape that showcased some of the most important NYHC bands of the time. This tape was an underground sensation, traveling in dubbed form all over the world. It made such an impact that, in 2016, a documentary was made to further preserve the history of both the movement and the music. Now Freddy takes on the melding of two very important aspects of New York street culture in his forthcoming book "Urban Styles: Graffiti in New York Hardcore." Part anecdotal oral history, part photojournalism, "Urban Styles" aims to not only educate, but also to preserve a very important and largely undocumented crossover of two vital form of expression. At its heart is youth culture at its finest: outlaw street art fueled by driving, crushing hardcore music, and vice versa.
We are very fortunate to be able to publish such a powerful story, and we hope you will find it as enthralling as we do. Keep checking with us for updates as we progress through this project. You can find us on just about all social media platforms.
