Hard Core Logo by Michael Turner

Hard Core Logo, first published in 1992, is an epistolary novel acclaimed for its realistic depiction of the life of a punk rock band. Consisting of monologues, conversations, letters, interviews, photographs, and related paraphernalia, Hard Core Logo tells the story of Joe Dick, an unrepentant, true-blue punk rocker whose scarred ideals are renewed when his band reunites for one last shot at rock 'n' roll glory. Hard Core Logo was made into a feature film in 1996; a sequel went into production in February 2010. Michael Turner's other novels include The Pornographer's Poem (Soft Skull Press).

Hard Core Logo is a great title for anyone with interest in Punk music or the music industry in general - the book follows, in letter and journal and clipping format, the life of a fictional punk band from the 80's on a reunion tour. it's a great format of a novel, and a gripping story. it follows the gradual breakdown of their tour, their band and their tolerance of each other. A must-read. note: not for fans of pop, commercial rock, or boy-bands.
