Alexis Fleisig "Soul Side: Washington, DC, 1986-1989" - Book

Soul Side, a band from the mid-1980s Dischord Records punk-rock scene in Washington, DC, grew into maturity in a few short years, going from occasional club shows to nationwide tours, and a full European tour in 1989 immediately preceding the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. The four-year span of the band would end with a recording session of their last album, "Hot Bodi-Gram," in Eindhoven, Holland, at the conclusion of their final tour. As a perennial photographer, graphic designer, and archivist, the band's drummer, Alexis Fleisig, has kept a collection of photos and flyers from these tours and has compiled as much as he could into this volume.
