Product description


"The photos are exciting by virtue of seeming very present, and Tricarico's decision to give some of these women a full page of their own to say something about their lives in rock 'n' roll is a necessary and priceless undertaking that adds tremendous value to Frame of Mind as a punk subcultural artifact...[Tricarico] captures not just a spirit of the times, but a spirit that is for all times. It's a punk thing to do, to show us that these bands may go down but the spirit of the underground carries on with each musician, nonetheless."

Included in BookAuthority's 39 Best Punk Music Books of All Time

"[Tricarico's] ability to take a wide range of musicians in various experiences and both show their energy and their humanity really makes these pages shine. The additional focus on women musicians both in photos and essays makes this one a keeper."

"Having been steeped in the punk scene in Rome, Tricarico used her camera as a way to connect with kindred spirits in a new language. In the process, she filmed a who's who of the scene and those who came to play in DC: Ian MacKaye, Joan Jett, Alice Bag, Allison Wolfe, Donita Sparks and many more. Her new book, Frame of Mind, contains 200 photographs from this vast archive, with stories provided by many of the subjects."
Please Kill Me

"There are plenty of photo projects covering the history of DC's underground music scene, but many of them are incomplete in one specific--and perhaps unsurprising--way. Women have been involved in this community from the start: playing in bands, making zines, shooting photos. Only recently, however, have their perspective come to the forefront. Photographer Antonia Tricarico moved to Washington DC from Italy in 1997 and quickly started documenting the underground music communities around her which included iconic bands like Fugazi, The Make Up, and Branch Manager."
Popular Photography

"Featuring essays by queer artists such as Joan Jett, Allison Wolfe, and Tara Jane O'Neil, among others, Frame of Mind: Punk Photos and Essays from Washington, DC, and Beyond, 1997-2017 is a cool coffee table book by Antonia Tricarico, containing pics of The Gossip, The Julie Ruin, and many others."
Baltimore Out Loud

"The women featured in Frame of Mind, the USWNT, and countless others are bucking the norm that to be celebrated as a woman, you have to be gracious and humble and beautiful and kind and a million other things. They are standing up with confidence in their skills and in themselves and demanding the equality authorities at all levels fail to give them. If that's not punk, I don't know what is."
Rhythm Reload Magazine

"Using 200 pictures taken from a variety of venues including New York, Rome and Washington, DC, Tricarico has not only preserved this musical era for the visual record, she has captured its very heart and soul. Working largely in black and white, her photos capture bands at work, play, hanging out, and most importantly onstage. Collected together they give readers a look at the microcosm of punk influenced music of the late 1990s."
Target Audience Magazine

"It was about time a book like this got published; if you like female musicians, photo books, DC and punk--this is for you."
Trust Fanzine (Germany)

"Unique and highly recommended."
Midwest Book Review

"In the late 1990s in Washington, DC, a seminal era in underground music was born, and photographer Antonia Tricarico was steeped in it. Tricarico chronicled its musicians, women and men alike, with her powerful and evocative photos, which are collected here in Frame of Mind."
Brooklyn Digest

"A beautiful and welcomed addition to the library of titles already out there about harDCore...Supremely emphatic and entirely exciting, the photographs of Antonia Tricarico in Frame of Mind are as vitally important to documenting the continuing harDCore scene as those of earlier artists like Jim Saah and Malcolm Riviera. Frame of Mind: Punk Photos and Essays from Washington, DC, and Beyond, 1997-2017 does her work justice in a sturdy and lovely book, the rare coffee-table book that's actually got things worth reading in it too."
A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed

Alice Bag is a singer/songwriter, musician, author, artist, educator and feminist. Alice was the lead singer and co-founder of the Bags, one of the first bands to form during the initial wave of punk rock in Los Angeles. The Alice Bag Band was featured in the seminal documentary on punk rock, The Decline of Western Civilization. Alice went on to perform in other groundbreaking bands, including Castration Squad, Cholita, and Las Tres.

Bag has published two books, including the critically acclaimed memoir Violence Girl in 2011 (Feral House) and the 2015 self-published Pipe Bomb For the Soul, based on her teaching experiences in post-revolutionary Nicaragua. Alice’s self-titled 2016 debut album received critical acclaim and was named one of the best albums of the year by AllMusic. Her 2018 album "Blueprint" was named one of the Best Albums of the Year by NPR Music and the Los Angeles Times. In 2020, Alice will release her third solo album, "Sister Dynamite."
