    Who knew? You liking it so far? They get into the obscenity trial and everything. And it sounds like they did the school bus tour bus thing before Youth Brigade did.

    I'm also reading a Chris Walter book....SINS OF THE POOR. I don't like it as much as the Dayglos book, but it's still pretty decent.

    So far so good. I'm about 40 pages in. I haven't had much time to read since you gave it to me but with a 5 hour plane ride tomorrow... I figure I'll get through that and the Gainsbourg book between my flight to LV and my flight back home.

    The Soft Machine by William S. Burroughs... it's melting my brain - some of the setpieces are so bizarre and outrageous that you can't help relating them to friends. Then they give you a look like you're nuts. I love Burroughs.

    I just finished Diary Of A Punk: Life And Death in The Pagans by Mike Hudson

    It was ok, a bit too "we never got the respect we deserved" blah blah...The Pagans had some terrific songs but it's not like they would have changed the world if they'd got what Hudson feels they deserved.

    Blew through "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets" yesterday. It's a collection of incredibly bizarre Golden Age comic stories written and drawn by Fletcher Hanks... a guy that Robert Crumb thinks was truly twisted. He was!

    Finished with the Dayglos, moved on to the Serge Gainsbourg bio I got for Christmas. So far, so good. Really like the prose style in this one.

    The Gainsbourg books was excellent but I plowed through it on the plane ride back from Vegas.

    Up now? Black And White And Blue: Adult Cinema From The Victorian Age To The VCR by Dave Thompson.

    Dave Thompson the rock writer? That guy was everywhere in the 90's.

    I'm about half-way through the Keith Richards autobiography. Great stuff!

    I don't know if it's the same guy or not but in the opening chapter he compares porno movie makers to punk rock, so it's probably the same dude.
