This is the first issue of Boiling Point, a beloved late 80’s/early 90’s fanzine covering the northeast hardcore scene. Boiling Point Number One has a decidedly straight edge bent, interviewing heavyweights like Bold, Gorilla Biscuits, Side By Side, but aren’t explicit or rigid in those politics, giving credence to bands like the DC-based American Standard. In addition to the extensive, thoughtful interviews, Boiling Point features a plethora of large-scale live show photographs.
