I do continue to receive and respond to comments on posts on the blog, through email, and on Facebook. I still love to listen to old Christian hardcore albums, as well as reminisce about and discuss these bands. I hope this blog continues to serve as a valuable resource on the subject, which keeps me bound to continuously replying to incoming emails with requests for downloads whose links on the blog are no longer functioning. This is no problem and I am happy to continue offering such a favor. If a link doesn't work then contact me.

Sociology of Christian Punk

So, yesterday at 4pm I was interviewed by my new friend, Ibrahim from the University of Bristol in the U.K., about Christian hardcore music. He is currently working on a dissertation on the Sociology of Christian Punk. His research is funded by the University and will lead to a series of articles on the subject matter, as well a book published in the near future on the material he gathers that is already had interest expressed in by a few American publishing houses. I, obviously, was interviewed regarding Christian hardcore, but we also covered the topics of: the hardcore scene in general, the Christian hardcore scene (past and present), Christian hardcore music, hardcore music, straight edge, and even the roles females have played in the hardcore and Christian scenes. It was pretty awesome. I will be reviewing the transcript of the interview within the next couple days. I am currently assisting him in gathering those who I believe have been prominent members of the Christian hardcore scene so that not only will his research be accurate, but a future book on the subject could be as rad as possible. I will keep everyone posted in the future. Meanwhile, there are some things I plan to post on the blog; including some old Tooth & Nail, Facedown, and other labels' compilations; as well as some scans of zines, memorable album artwork, and old live pictures of bands.

Christian hardcore rules.


  1. The scene is a good one, indeed. Now that the two have merged more, you can find a lot of the bigger "christian" bands alongside "secular" bands, which is a good thing. The scene has come a long way, and also changed in some bad ways too.

  2. dude, i cannot wait to read this book when it comes out. keep posted on the whereabouts on it. i just got a new book in, "Fame is Infamy" by Andrew Schwab of P86. can't wait to read it. he is an awesome writer. nice to hear this info. i would enjoy reading about this topic :)

  3. That sounds really cool man! Any news on that book? I like the site here, doing some cool stuff with the classic goodness. Keep it going man
