Angelo Sindaco, a contributing photographer to Vice magazine, has been taking backstage pictures and live video footage at clubs since the 1990s. Ten years later, he is sitting on an unparalleled recent history of the indie rock scene, a virtual night out like no other. Amplified Youth is a book about being young and living for live music and the ritual of the concert. In his book Angelo Sindaco captures the spirit of the celebration of sound, sweat and raw energy through a collection of rigorous black and white photographs: backstage, live performances, portraits of the bands, and of the audience. His photographs are a more
than credible snapshot of an attitude of the new generation of stars in the genre that just won’t quit. Amplified Youth is a great chance to see in action underground legends like Editors, Art Brut, Maximo Park, Animal Collective, The Cribs, Cazals, and many others from a stunning point of view. With a preface of Alan Mc Gee, founder of the Creation and Poptones labels and the former manager of the Oasis and the Libertines, and with text by Christian Zingales, the Editor-in-Chief of Blow Up magazine. Rock lives.
