this is a great collection of images telling an amazing story
or at least part of an amazing story
it is a limited perspective
it is a bit of a clique
altering importance by perspective
punk rock was sort of the clique-ish anti-clique
sadly... dc punk rock may have been more of a clique than the cliques in high school
which is fine
as most of the people at this time were teen agers
adults tend to be as surface as children
so, why should I expect more from teen agers?
why should the punk rock kids be any different than the jocks or the advance placement students?
the cliqueishness may have molded the growth of the scene
it may mold the historic presentation as well
perhaps Cynthia Connelly will come out with a re-issue DAD IN DC
taking pictures of the punk culture 20 years later... some married with kids
some of them still very active
some still very punk
some of them moms and dads
