Mat Resist writes about the things he loves. He writes about building things and growing things. He writes about bicycles and traveling. Sometimes he writes instructional pieces, occasionally they're angry diatribes, but mostly he tells stories. It's not usually someone telling you "This is how you do it." It's him telling you, "This is how I did it, and this is how it worked for me." He's a storyteller at heart. 20+ years of writing zines will do that to you.

When he's not writing, he's working with his hands; always finding something new to build, repair, or create. Or he's getting them dirty in the garden on the little urban homestead he's always working to create. Or he might be riding his bike, or dropping a fishing line into the water

For a book that is supposed to be the story of Peetie Wheatstraw & his songs, there doesn't seem to be much of a story. The majority of the book was lyrics, and while some of them were pretty good, the lyrics without the rhythm and the music just ...more

"A few of the chapters were a little meh, which is to be expected in a book written by many different people, but overall it was an excellent look back at the first wave of L.A. punk, from many of the main players."
