Or was this when it was still college rock?  I forget.  Excellent book, either way.  The Minutemen, Husker Du, The Surfers - some of the best biographical writing I've read in a long time.  It's mostly an insanely great book tho, for my money, I'd ditch the sections about Minor Threat and Beat Happening.
