From Deep Cleveland to Rust Belt Chic

By Levi Asher on Friday, September 28, 2012 06:24 pm

Here at Litkicks, we always knew about Rust Belt Chic. There's some kind of magical aura to the cold, hard-bitten industrial cities of the Great Lakes region, and a few years ago we would visit a website called Deep Cleveland, a site inspired by the memory of poet d. a. levy, to get a hit of this cultural flavor. Now there's a new entry representing the spirit of the northern urban netherworlds, aptly titled Rust Belt Chic. The new website has also published its first book. Our own definition of rust belt chic? Eminem ... Michael Moore ... Hart Crane ... MC5 ... Alan Freed ... Devo ... Harmony Korine. And these two websites, well worth checking out.
