With All Ages, Beth Lahickey presents a comp rehensive overview of an underground hardcore music scene. T he book includes 29 interviews with people involved in the s traight edge scene, some of whom are now in prominent bands.

Straight edge is not so much the topic, but a starting point. Where all these band members and "scenesters" have gone since then is what's really fascinating. So many people who seemingly stood for the same things have since explored virtually every direction in life you could dream up. This is our Banned in DC and then some because Beth didn't limit the scope of this book to jus tthe big 'names,' she interviewed those on the outside looking in - everyone from Ian MacKaye to Ray Cappo to Jordan Cooper to the girl who sold soda at the Anthrax. If you care one iota.

In São Paulo, the straight edge subculture was consolidated in the 1990s around a collective and its festival. written about the straight edge subculture-such as Robert Wood (2006), Beth Lahickey. 2007), Ross Haener (2004; 2009), and Gabriel Kuhn (2010)-argue that it emerged. in opposition to the live fast, die young nihilism of punk and the abuse of alcohol.

All Ages: Reflections on Straight Edge takes an in-depth look at the second wave of American Hardcore -- the music that borrowed from the likes of Minor Threat, Black Flag and SSD -- bands like Youth of Today, Slapshot, Bold, Underdog, Side by Side, Gorilla Biscuits, Judge, Inside Out, Chain of Strength, No for an Answer and Supertouch. Most of these bands were awesome and unique and have yet to be documented accurately outside of their own recordings until now. The personalities and opinions expressed in this book are as varied as the music these people have since created. So many of the people who at one time held similar beliefs have since then explored virtually every direction in life imaginable and they candidly discuss their experiences in All Ages. If you care one iota about not just straight edge, but American Hardcore in general, All Ages is a must. And if you can deal with some honesty and some fallen angels and even some humor, then buy it. And don't just look at it, read it. And then put it in that spot you have reserved for things that become part of your permanent collection.

well what can you say - straight edge folk don't do the drugs or the drinkin' and they like the clean livin'.

it's a great book. gives you a comprehensive look at people who have used a sharpie to make X's on their hands for no real reason.

just kidding - solid read. 10/10

While I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and looking at all the sexy photographs of muscular straight edge studs, there are many things about this book which I find really problematic. Of the 30 or so people that Becky Lahickey interviewed only three of them are women. She also only interviewed two people of color, both Latino/as, and only one out queer musician, the bisexual singer Dan O'Mahony. While I commend Lahickey for questioning the women about their experiences in a largely patriarchal subculture, it amazes me that she never discusses the issue of racism with the two Latino/as or the issue of heterosexism with the one out bisexual. Surprisingly, she never even mentions his sexuality at all, despite the fact that O'Mahony is definitely not in the closet. Just read his excellent and very erotic book, "Four Letter World". As a straight edge, radical queer, I would have really appreciated some LGBTQ perspectives on the movement. Given the fact that the straight edge community is so overwhelmingly dominated by white, middle-class, heterosexual, cisgender, young men, I think a discussion about racism, sexism, classism, and heterosexism would have been enormously valuable. As one example of straight edge machismo, many of the contributors speak in phallocentric terminology, talking about the importance of having a "hard" personality. Though the straight edge movement is overtly political, I was disappointed to find that Beth Lahickey barely discusses politics in this book at all. Moreover, in her interview with Ray Cappo, she never interrogates him about his responsibility for drawing so many straight edge activists into the Hare Krishna cult. Despite their exotic robes, vegetarian diet, and nag champa incense, the Hare Krishnas share the same conservative political opinions on sexuality and gender as their Christian fundamentalist counterparts. Like the hardline movement and Christian straight edge, I think that Krishnacore is a really negative and destructive development in the straight edge movement. For a much better book on straight edge, I recommend the straight edge, anarchist anthology, "Sober Living For The Revolution", edited by Gabriel Kuhn and published by PM Press.

Having been heavily into the straight-edge scene from 1987-91 or so, and having more or lest kept abreast of it since (while remaining SE), it was with some trepidation that I started reading this compilation of interviews with former band members and scenesters of that era. While I wasn't surprised at all to find a lot of revisionist history about what so-and-so "really" believed at the time, there was actually quite a bit more honesty and self-awareness than I expected. Even though most of the interviewees aren't SE any more, there was a general consensus that it had played a positive role in their lives, despite the wretched excesses that some in the scene were--and are--prone to. There are a few females (friends of the compiler) who have some semi-interesting things to say about how straight-edge is fairly exclusionary of women, but the best interview in the book is with Ian Mackaye. Far from dissing SE, he lauds its passability as a positive influence and force while recognizing its limitations and unexpected mutations. For people who were there, this book is an interesting look back, but as a work of anthropology it's kind of useless. One wishes Lahickey had pursued some of the obvious contradictions and obfuscations in some of her interviewees statements. The book is chock-a-block with live pictures and reproductions of flyers, which make up somewhat for the crappy typography and typos.

as a follower of the staright edge movement for several years now, it's always good to see the issue gain public notice in a positive light. however, the interviews here seem to deal only with the state of the scene during nearly ten years ago. also, it's a bit of a dissappointment considering that the majority of those interviewed here no longer have any ties to the scene, and choose to portray it in a fairly negative way. this book, although slightly informative, is merely a collection of words and thoughts from a group of aging, jaded, bitter individuals who have long sense sold out their ideas and beliefs. i think the only reassuring words came from Mike Hartsfield who stated clearly he is still involved and always plans to be. everyone grows up, but that doesn't neccessarily mean you have to grow "out" of any aspect of life. growing up is merely learning. this book had wonderful potential in gaining wide coverage of a scene so sequestered from the media and society, but failed to touch on any topics of current action or up to date information. overall it serves as a collector's item to anyone involved with straight edge, past or present, as well as an up date to what has happened with individual's heroes from the last decade of hardcore music.
