Frame Of Mind – Punk Photos and Essays From Washington DC, and Beyond, 1997-2017 – Hardback Book
By Antonia Tricarico
A coffee-table hardcover book that compiles full-colour/black-white photos with articles written by Joan Jett, Amy Farina (Coriky etc.), Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile etc.), Donita Sparks (L7), Alice Bag, Amy Pickering (Fire Party, Dischord etc.) and more. The photography is both the typical journalistic ‘on stage’ shots, plus more intimate hanging-out snapshats. Featuring the obvious DC bands from within the time period (Fugazi, Dag Nasty, Q And Not You etc.); and also every other band that came through town: Saint Vitus, Shellac, Sleater Kinney, Melvins, etc. This docu-book is different (and better) than some of the other similar themed projects that are out there (and DC certainely has more than its fair share) due to the concentration upon the female perspective and contibutions.
