Hardcore Architecture: Houses of 80s Punk-Innovators

Großartiges Tumblelog von Marc Fischer: „Hardcore Architecture explores the relationship between the architecture of living spaces and the history of underground American hardcore bands in the 1980s. Band addresses are discovered using contact listings found in demo tape and record reviews published from 1982-89 in the fanzine MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL (MRR). Google Street View is used to capture photos of the homes. Street names and numbers are removed to respect the privacy of people currently living at these addresses.“ Bild oben, die Butze von Pussy Galore. (via MeFi)

The address given for their “Exile on Main Street” cassette, in New York, NY 10002. Source: MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL, issue no. 47, April, 1987. Street view date: Sept, 2014. Sample quote from the review: “A cassette-only release in a limited edition of 500, doing an entire and complete cover of the Stones’ heroin masterpiece. However, tongue is firmly in cheek as half the songs are done straight and half are completely trashed. Yes, a classic.”
