I couldn't believe my ears when I heard The Misfits coming from the RADIO! Sure enough, it was coming from NPR on a Saturday morning. Meno was promoting this book and the background soundtrack and interview was enough to propel me right to the library (15 minutes!) to check out this book. I read it all that day and found it entertaining while immersing me with nostalgia. The lyrics, the band names, the descriptions of the characters and "shows" in the basement brought back sweet memories. It's only sweet now, of course--those days were just as uncomfortable and confusing as Brian finds it. I could have liked him more if he weren't such a wimp and if he didn't go through the classic DEVO phase.
