Henry Rollins - Before the Chop: LA Weekly Articles 2011 - 2012 (Signed)
[+] enlarge image/alternate views

Before the Chop compiles the first one hundred pieces I wrote for the Weekly and also includes the feature interview I did with Nick Cave when Grinderman II came out.

For reasons of space, the Weekly must often slightly truncate the pieces and also sees fit to change the name of the piece. So, what you read there isn’t always what I sent them. This is one of the reasons I wanted to put this book out. Also, knowing there are a lot of people out there without the time to go to some website and read something every week, I thought it would be a good idea to have the articles all in one place.

I hope you enjoy the book and thank you. - Henry

Henry Rollins - 50 DVD
The 50 DVD has made its arrival to our site after being sold on tour only for most of this year. The DVD is a live performance of me at the National Geographic Theater in Washington DC on February 13th, 2011, when I turned fifty. Ian MacKaye introduces me and I take it from there. It was a good night in a good theater with a fantastic audience. One of the parts I like about it is that we did some non performance footage of me going back to some of my old haunts in DC like the classic venue Madams Organ as well as a tour through my old job that I left in 1981. We are very happy to be able to bring this to all of you who were not able to go to the tour and pick it up there. -- Henry

Henry Rollins - A Grim Detail Book
SIGNED & NUMBERED COPIES ARE SOLD OUT A Grim Detail covers my travels and work from the years of 2009 and 2010. In that time period, I went all over the world for shows and exploration. North Korea, Mongolia, South Sudan and Saudi Arabia are just a few of the destinations. We made two initial print runs of AGD. The 1500 black cover limited edition, which is signed and numbered with color photos and the yellow cover unsigned edition with black and white photos. The book took a long time to complete because of work schedules, travel and the fact that it's a much larger bit of writing than usual. I hope you like it. - Henry

Henry Rollins - Get In The Van
Henry Rollins graphic account of life on the road recounts his harrowing exploits with one of the most important rock bands in modern history, Black Flag. From his acceptance into the band in 1981 to its demise in 1986, Get in the Van comprehensively documents his six year "tour of duty" with the band. Primarily constructed from his tour journals, Rollins chronicles his years in the band with brutal candor and incisive humor -- years strewn with overzealous fans, truculent policemen, poverty and all-night drives. Contains Rollins' 1981-1986 Black Flag tour journals, nearly 200 photographs and illustrations, and his entire 1981-1986 tour itinerary. Made in USA

Henry Rollins - A Mad Dash
A Mad Dash picks up where 2007’s A Preferred Blur left off. A seemingly endless stream of words, one after another, details his travels all over the world, over one hundred performances and the shooting of five documentaries. The book goes right to the end, only stopping at the last page. Henry Rollins is still writing himself into obscurity and from the looks of this book, he’s almost there! This self-published punk is criminally implicated in several books that bear his name. Someone should have a word with him about that. This back cover blurb is not the first time he has written in third-person singular. Thank you. -– Henry Rollins Note: Autographed copies are SOLD OUT. Made in USA

Henry Rollins - Occupants
Signed copies are SOLD OUT! Occupants pairs Rollins' visceral full-color photographs taken in Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and elsewhere over the last few years—with writings that not only provide context and magnify the impact of the images but also lift them to the level of political commentary. Simply put, this book is a visual testimony of anger, suffering, and resilience that will help its readers realize what is so easy to miss when tragedy and terror become numbing, constant forces—the quieter, stronger forces of healing, solidarity, faith and even joy.

Henry Rollins - Solipsist
I saw the word Solipsist while reading the dictionary in 1993. I was living in NYC at the time and the word defined how the city made me feel. I worked on this book in several cities all over the world until 1996. The writing is obsessive and claustrophobic. To be solipsistic is to totally realize the ego and the nightmare of utter self-possession. I went for it and it swallowed me whole. -- Henry Rollins Made in USA
