The long running UK punk zine, Raising Hell, has just reviewed Marcel Stol and Henk Wentink's brilliant and beautiful DIY or die book 'Goudvishal', all about punk scene in Arnhem (Netherlands) between '77 and '90, focusing on the squat venues Stokvishal and Goudvishal. With over 500 pages about the gigs, protests and struggle, illustrated with news-clippings and photos from the time telling the story of these important venues and the punk scene around them.
Their review is below, and you can read it properly in the latest issue of Raising Hell
