A New York story..


http://www.menright.com/pages/carolyn.html

It was 1980, and the New York hardcore scene was beginning to coalesce
around venues likeThe A7 Club in the East Village. Hardcore was a faster,
heavier, more violent sound that grew out of the first-wave CBGB punk of
the late '70s. It took a few years to define itself — nobody knew what the
rules were, or how the style was supposed to sound.

Carolyn was new in town, working for an answering service and as an
occasional punk extra in clueless Hollywood versions of the Lower East
Side. She spent the nights she wasn't working on the benches in Tompkins
Square, or on the stoops around Stromboli's Pizza on St. Mark's Place. She
didn't have enough cash to get into the clubs very often. Drink of choice:
a forty-ounce Bud.
