Aurore Press: Publishing Dissenting Views in Cincinnati since 2007


A Collection of Recollections From The Jockey Club 1982-1988
$16.99 + S&H

Located just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati during the height of 80s punk was the home of the legendary Jockey Club. Nearly every touring punk band made their requisite stop in Newport, Kentucky at the now infamous club owned by Hallman “Shorty” Mincey and his brother, Haynes “Tiny” Mincey.

Twenty years after its demolition, the cast of characters affectionately known as "the freak show" share their stories about the bands, the people, and Shorty as they remembered them. Everyone from Joey Shithead of D.O.A. to Eerie Von to the Human Zoo himself, Bevo, contributed in not just conveying the importance of The Jockey Club to the Cincinnati area music scene, but just how much it really meant to the people that were there.

"The folks at local independent publisher Aurore Press have done more than almost anyone to keep alive the legend of The Jockey Club, the ’80s Punk Rock venue in Newport that put the allegedly behind-the-times Cincinnati on the Punk map and helped foster a strong local Punk scene that lives on to this day." -- Cincinnati CityBeat
