Hard Core Logo: Portrait of a Thousand Punks
Joe Dick, Billy Tallent, John Oxenburger, and Pipefitter are Hard Core Logo, Vancouver's legendary but now defunct punk band. Joe Dick coaxes his former bandmates to reunite for a benefit concert for their ageing punk mentor, Bucky Haight, who has been shot. But the concert's not enough for Joe; he wants the band to hit the road again. For the Hard Cores this means they come to realize that they can neither relive nor alter the past. Featuring a new introduction by Lynn Crosbie and a tear-out guitar chord book, Hard Core Logo: Portrait of a Thousand Punks weaves together a patchwork narrative of found art, dialogue, songs, and incidental bystanders.
