Grinding California presents the 1st educational research of the culture of skate punk at book-length. It establishes hugely severe reviews of the discourses that inspired early skateboarding and punk cultures. in keeping with an exam of songs, flyers, magazines, and video clips, Konstantin Butz revisits American renowned cultures of the Eighties and ways them from quite a few theoretical and methodological angles. He introduces contemplations of the rebellious capability that may be positioned inside skate punk's fabric and corporeal contestations of the site-specific locale of suburban Southern California. Theoretical recourses to thinkers comparable to Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jean Baudrillard and Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht are crowned off with excerpts from interviews with the most influential protagonists of the Nineteen Eighties skate punk scene.
