On the heels of the graffiti renaissance comes a vibrant look at an old school icon that figured prominently in the hip hop rock roll and punk movements of the 1970s and 80s The Boombox Project features contemporary fine art portraits of an array of vintage boomboxes as well as scores of documentary photographs of the people who brought. an historic icon of my childhood the boombox was than a status symbol it was than a means to an ends it was a statement I didn't grow up in the inner city the closest city to my hometown was an hour away but even in my small rural farming crossroads of a town the boom box was a symbol of power and like every kid i wanted one my first one was a cheap one a KOSS brand i think dual cassette cheap plastic but it brought me so much joy i can vividly remember making my first mix tapes waiting by the radio hoping they'd play the songs i'd want to record later on i'd stay up late on Saturday nights to listen to and record Power 108's commercial free jam of the greatest hip hop of 1988 As i got older i'd blare cassette singles from that boom box mostly rap and hip hop the music designed to be played loud Public Enemy EPMD LL Cool J 3rd Bass BDP and of course RUN DMC played loud and proudThe Boombox Project by Lyle Owerko brought back all of those memories and It's a little than a coffee table book in that it evokes emotions long forgotten the creativity of the project and the ability of Owerko to find something beautiful and intricate out of something so ordinary and forgotten ie the Boombox it makes me realize how often we 'miss' things as someone who aspires to create my eyes don't 'see' enough to often i think i allow myself to gloss over the artistic sides of life the Boombox was an artistic side of our culture that should be remembered

The Boombox ProjectThe boombox movement to life back in the day   The book is than just a collection of images though; it’s also an oral history of the early days of hip hop featuring memories from Fab 5 Freddy Bob Gruen Rosie Perez Kool Moe Dee LL Cool J Lisa Lisa DJ Spooky and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys among others on the role this once ubiuitou. The Conduit for Early Hip Hop MusicGreat read I learned so much about early Hip Hop culture I also gained a better understanding of the early Punk rock culture and how both cultures clashed and merged in the early late 70s early 80s
