Turnaround Staff Pick: Queercore


I first encountered the queercore music revolution through writing an article on the movement around the start of 2020, and admittedly that first encounter has since spiralled into a full-blown fascination. If you’re looking for a book that covers the music, zines, photographs, and primary figures of the movement, then this is a book that will knock your socks off! This book traces queercore back to its origins with young queer punks in San Francisco, interviewing giants around the scene including Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Bruce LaBruce. Whether you’re looking to dive into some awesome queer history, or just want to read about some kickass music and art, I recommend you pick up QUEERCORE!
