Ah, to be a metalhead on the biggest holiday of the year. We're imagining that you got a new fleece from Eddie Bauer instead of the rare Xasthur LP you hoped would end up under the tree. Your incontinent grandpa is still asleep on the couch. You are now hiding in your room scanning metal blogs. Lucky you. We've teamed up with our good friends at Bazillion Points to give away two copies of We Got Power!, a collection of the crucial 80s fanzine convering Southern California hardcore founded by David Markey and best friend Jordan Schwartz.
Like much of what Bazillion publishes it's part work of art and part extreme music history lesson. The hardbound book features 400 first-generation L.A. hardcore punk photographs and complete color reprints of the fanzine, in addition to essays by hardcore luminaries (if such a thing exists).
We have two copies for the best two answers to this seemingly simply question:
What is the essential Southern California hardcore album?
Answers are due by January 14, 2013 to accomodate folks who are still on vacation. Please post responses in the comment section and then post a link to the contest on Facebook and Twitter if you fancy social media. Happy Holidays.
