Really made me wish I had experienced the glory of the JC, but I just missed it, as I discovered punk in earnest around 1988. Wish there was something like it for the METRO/Club House, which was my version of the JC. A loving tribute to a place held dearly to the contributors' hearts.

The best book about the Jockey Club ever and quite possibly the only one.

A bit of a mixed bag, really, as these sort of compendiums do tend to be. While some of the submissions were quite well written, others constitute Crimes Against Timber. Maybe it's a very fine line between careful editing and honoring the ethos of punk rock. Both the good and the bad, however, share one common trait: the successful evocation of a time and a place which, for those of us who were there, was golden.
