bookshelves: to-read

A poignant, sad, heartbreaking disturbing human story and a great book about the birth of LA punk/hardcore and the diverse and contradictory community of social outcasts who composed the scene before 'punk' was even a word or a style. It does not glamorize the self-destructiveness or make you wish you had been there. A heartfelt ode to darby crash and the germs that is truthful and doesn't mythologize them.
