Texas Is The Reason is a punk rock photobook by Pat Blashill, and it documents the golden age of Lone Star hardcore, from the Butthole Surfers to the Dallas punks who protested Reagan at the Twilight Room in 1984. Texas Monthly has called the book “gorgeous,” and it features more than two hundred black and white photographs and essays by director Richard Linklater and Jesus Lizard singer David Yow. Texas Is The Reason is brought to you by the wonderful and headbanging independent publisher Bazillion Points, who have previously published lavishly illustrated tomes on American punk and Norwegian black metal.
Photographer and author Pat Blashill will be joined by Dallas punk legend Jeffrey Liles at Wild Detectives on April 7 to tell stories about the bands, fans and photos in Texas Is The Reason. He’ll sign books and stick around for questions, too, so please come out to celebrate the pioneers of Texas punk rock.
