This is 1 of the top books of 2011 easily. It's a look back at punk bands (mainly garage-y) from about '86 to '00. It's informative, funny, and fairly comprehensive. Anyone else read it?
There's an interview w/ Eric in my Blog (I just found out about this group 5 minutes ago).
I enjoyed the book. then i lent it to two of my friend who both did. Really fun read.
I really liked it interviews in it were pretty good as well as the free downloads!
Yeah, I think it's a pretty good intro for those who weren't around in the 90s. Eric's an enthusiastic writer, as well as a super frontman.
There's an interview w/ him in One-Chord e-zine here on the Hideout.
Awesome book and great downloadable soundtrack!!
Great Book, I found Davidsons use of prose initially abit abrupt but the content was ace as well as all the nuts-and-bolts of being in bands, recording, touring and getting ripped-off. I watched an interview on youtube and Davidson said that the book was originally bigger. Maybe in the future it could be re-released as an expanded edition or a kindle/pdf only type thing?
Yeh, that'd be killa! It had a link to a site that had excised material on it, but the site no longer exists. I never hear enuff o' band anecdotes, myself.
Alright, thanks for that! Dorky it is ;)
