'Trapped In A Scene - UK Hardcore - 1985-1989' by Ian Glasper is a great conclusion to his trilogy of books about the 1980's UK Punk Scene. The first - 'Burning Britain' - really set the benchmark high in relation to what Ian was aiming to achieve in terms of quality, and the second - 'The Day The Country Died' - maintained that high level and proved to be a very important release, being the first key document of the 1980's Anarcho Punk scene (and featuring two Southend Punk bands - The Sinyx + The Kronstadt Uprising). 'Trapped in a Scene' takes the story up to decades end and tells of the bands inspired by these two waves of punk and more, and then making their own indelible mark on it and engendering their own scene. The book tells their stores well, is meticulously researched and contains some wonderful rare memorabilia, photographs and discographies. Highly recommended!
