What the hell is “1.5”??? Is it Punk? Is it Hardcore? Why do old heads insist on being this nerdy? Ben Merlis has the answers to these questions and much more!!!
You can read the piece that he co-authored by Daniel Weizmann called “The Zone In Between” about the bridge between Punk and Hardcore at Please Kill Me. I also STRONGLY recommend picking up Ben’s book documenting Cold Chillin’ Records and The Juice Crew called “Goin’ Off”. Ben is also a regular on the excellent 185 Miles South podcast.
