it was amazing
Read in March, 2008

Hipster lit types will know from his work at mcsweeneys.net that Kennedy is first and foremost an absurdist. Secondly, a sort of Morrissey-meets-Sedaris type who spins miserablism into keen observation and laughs for the shoe-gazer set. This is bliss for some and a little bit like being drugged then robbed for others. One shouldn't enter into "Rock On" expecting a top-level executive shake down of the music industry. Instead plan to feel a bit like meeting a tortured and semi-neurotic everyman whom you're glad to have a pint with in hopes he'll continue to spin his hilarious tales from the office until closing time. Not to mention a most unflinchingly heart-fueled and savage Iggy Pop yarn.
