Punk Interviews (Left of the Dial Books) is a tribute to the potent underground music scene of Washington D.C., which bridged groundbreaking, era-defining musical power with political and social consciousness.

It includes lengthy conversations with Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), Jeff Nelson (Minor Threat, 3), Alec MacKaye (the Faith, Ignition, the Warmers), J. Robbins (Government Issue, Jawbox), Chris Thomson (Soulside, Circus Lupus, Monorchid), Mark Anderson (Positive Force), John Stabb (Government Issue).
