This is a photo zine, exclusively featuring hardcore punk. A lion’s share of the photos were taken in the mid-‘00s at The Smell in Los Angeles and the Che Café in San Diego. Matt Average is a great maximizer/minimizer. Nothing’s extraneous. There’s no fat. There’s been tons of pre-editing. What you get is page after page of expertly timed and framed photographs from one of the most talented, dedicated photographers who happens to be a die-hard punk rocker. What I like most about Matt’s photos is his ability to transfer electricity; from the ten bands he chooses, to the images of the bands, and into your hands like a jolt. –Todd (Matt Average c/o ISO3200 Press, PO Box 25605, LA, CA 90025)
