I have known about this book for the few years Jeff Winterberg has been assembling its contents. It has been a daunting task narrowing down the hundreds of images into a visual dialoge that excites the viewer. While an initial glance may seem chaotic with several images filling a single page, quite simply, the book makes sense. The layout is graphic and gridlike and the images, bold and striking. I also enjoy the shift between the color and black and white photographs.

In addition to an amazing assortment of band photography, Jeff has also captured slice-of-life type shots of the people and events surrounding his life during this time. This book is almost a photographic diary of the years Jeff Winterberg has spent with these people and the music providing the soundtrack.

While an obvious comparison could be made to Glen E. Friedman, another photographer who covered the underground punk scene, Jeff's photographs feel more personal. Jeff is not an observer but a participant. Overall, a wonderful collection of images and even the stories behind some of them.

I feel like i could fall into any photograph in this book and be back in a place i was, at a show i saw, growing up. Whether you came up in and have come from the early indie and punk scene like I did, or want to pretend you did, or want a sense of what it was like, then this is a damn good place to start, and maybe even end, short of listening to all the music itself. Jeff Winterberg's photos manage to capture all the energy, fun, irreverence and wit of those times and leave out all the posturing and self-indulgent attitudes that have since followed. The cover price of this book seems a steal for a way to re-live your memories or imagine what those of us who were there must have seen in the scene.
