I continue my conversation with author Ben Merlis about the genre “1.5” and I might be a believer! You can read his piece (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.
