Bridge Nine 'Boston Hardcore & Punk Factsheet' (1999-2000) b9press04

In April of 1999, less than a year after moving to Boston and with only four 7 inch records out on Bridge Nine, Chris Wrenn started interviewing Boston area bands, labels and zines each month and printing them in his "Boston Hardcore & Punk Factsheet". Over the course of a year, 12 issues were released with 25 interviews with members of RIGHT BRIGADE, IN MY EYES, THE EXPLOSION, REACH THE SKY, FASTBREAK, PIEBALD, BLOOD FOR BLOOD, DALTONIC, TEN YARD FIGHT, CONVERGE, PROCLAMATION, BANE, A POOR EXCUSE, DROPKICK MURPHYS, CLOSE CALL, SUBURBAN VOICE FANZINE, DIECAST, THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, ISIS, VIGILANTES, BIG WHEEL RECREATION, ESPO RECORDS & THE HOPE CONSPIRACY!

64 pages with monthly scene reports and a definitive listing of every Boston area show that happened each month from 1999-2000. This is a time capsule from a turning point in the Boston Hardcore scene!
