Mix Tapes and Photo Albums
Physical copy of Mix Tapes and Photo Albums.
Mix Tapes and Photo Albums is a coming-of-age poetry collection about a small town punk rock scene told by a girl who loved Francie Nolan and Ben Weasel equally. Each poem assumes the title of a song which creates the soundtrack to a group of teenagers who push the boundaries of their small town, test where they fit, and find solace in their local punk rock scene. This poetic mix tape sings to the kids who will hear their first Sex Pistols song, start their own bands, write their own zines, scrawl Xs on their hands, and create their own communities; and those kids who remember.
This is for Metro in the Sterling Hotel, Metro on South Main Street, and Homebase
This is for all those bands who provided the soundtrack to my adolescence
This is for all those bands who wrote the songs that shaped my life
This is for all the punk kids who were fucking there
This is for all those the ex-boyfriends
This is for the Wilkes-Barre scene
