I've been getting a lot of great response to an review I recently published in the Philadelphia Review of Books about Hard Art, DC 1979, a book Akashic is putting out of Lucian Perkin's photographs of early DC hardcore bands, like Bad Brains, Teen Idles, and Trenchmouth.  The best email I have received, by far, though, was from Steve Metz, who was in an interracial DC band called the Mystery Dates, that played with Bad Brains.

Below is a basement practice shot of The Mystery Dates.
