I Want to See Some History

I recently interviewed Tim Mohr for Billboard on the topic of his excellent new book, Burning Down the Haus, which tells the story of punk rock in East Germany before the Berlin Wall fell–in other words, a punk scene that had real political stakes (unlike many in the United States). He told me, “The German edition of the book uses one of the slogans as the title: ‘Strib nicht im Warteraum der Zukunft,’ which means “Don’t Die in the Waiting Room of the Future.” It’s a great rallying cry against complacency.” Read the interview and buy the book from Algonquin.
