Screaming Fatal Truths is a collection of photographs (with a text) by Joe Briggs. The photographs were all made with disposable cameras at various DIY punk shows over the past 8 months and captures (in alphabetical order):

Anxiety • Arms Race • Crumbling Wall • Death Cult • Exotica • Efialtis • Firewalker • Game • Glue • Good Throb • Gutter Knife • Hex • Inhalant • Krimewatch • Limp Wrist • The Lowest Form • Lumpy & The Dumpers • Nekra • Never • Owner • Pinkgrip • Q • Sarcasm • Score • Shopping • State Funeral • Teufelskreis • Vile Spirit

“And so we end up with these photos. Demented grins, pains and strains astringent and painted plain across faces, limbs taught with fury, eyes dark with a dread focus of noise, eyes wide with a belligerent gleam of confrontation, stances rigid, knees locked, fists clenched with ferocious purpose. Getting something out.”

—from the introduction.

Limited to 100 copies in an archival sleeve, the first 25 pre-orders will come with a hand-stamped C-Type print of Limp Wrist printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper.

Joe Briggs lives in Oxford and goes to a lot of punk shows. He is a member of SCRAP BRAIN and also writes the punk crit zine Brutalist Shimmy.

Screaming Fatal Truths is the ninth title on Makina Books.
