Fuck You Too - The Extras + More Scrapbook
by Glen E. Friedman, Afterword by Sam Sifton - Hardcore

In 1976, at the age of 13, Friedman photographed one of his heroes, Jay Adams, radical skate boarder. The book opens with that picture & closes with another one of Adams from the same year. The rest of the book is filled with scrapbook-photos, covering a period from 1976 to 1995, not meant to be the social document that his previous book, Fuck You Heroes is, or the artistic statement that will be his next book, The Idealist, a 20-year retrospective of his work. From Irving Plaza (NYC) to Sun Valley (CA),from Regan Youth to Ice-T... & Germs, Black Flag, Shogo Kubo, Stimulators, X, Steve Caballero... From ramps to romps, this book is loaded with great photos (b/w & color) filled with joy, rage, angst, fun, defiance... & it's all in your face. So, sit back, put your feet up on that coffee table, turn off that TV, & imagine. Hardcore! - Square, large, trade paperback - $20.00.
