Abstract
This thesis project compiles the first few articles from a planned series of journalistic pieces on the punk and hardcore music scene in Connecticut. The following articles provide an inside glance into Connecticut's punk "do-it-yourself" (DIY) aesthetic and underground youth culture. Written in a "new journalism" style, the interviews and in-depth narratives aim to discover what it is that draws a certain demographic into this culture, as well as what differentiates the world of underground punk DIY from the other milieus of youth culture. The articles compiled within feature a personal essay/introduction, a first person narrative-based review of a local hardcore show at State University of New York at Purchase, an interview with the proprietors of Redscroll Records in Wallingford, and an interview with John Longyear of Audobon Records, an independent "bedroom" record label.
