New York hardcore was undergoing a transition at the end of the ’80s and this generational shift was exemplified by the bands that were featured on the now classic cassette compilation New Breed.  The story of the tape is at heart the story of NYC and the kids who grew up in its five boroughs as well as related outposts in Long Island/Yonkers.  A unique set of social/economic circumstances during the ’70s and ’80s forged the individuals that went on to make up the legendary New York hardcore scene.

new-breed-tape-smThe documentary profiles the band members, fanzine editors, record label heads, and fans that made up this vibrant scene.  It is through the eyes of these individuals that a spotlight is shined onto those tumultuous times in what is ultimately a tribute to a bygone era.
