    This was never going to be a simple story; and the authors aren't looking to simplify it. As the '70s bled into the '80s, life for the stars of Penelope Spheeris's era-defining 1981 documentary The Decline of Western Civilization ? bands like X, Black Flag, and Circle Jerks ? was a...

    I moved, or more appropriately had military orders, to Camp Pendleton in 1982. This southern California Marine Corps base was my chance to experience the world whereThe Doors had lived and played in. Instead Oceanside, California and Los Angles were in full punk swing, and The Doors we...

    This is a follow up to Under The Big Black Sun, and is also essays by Punk Rockers from the 80s L.A. scene, read by the artists in this audiobook. This one included a few people singing their songs acapella and some interviews, and also artists from other mediums from the time. It's a ...

    More Fun In The New World ?Seeds were thrown, for sure. What was essentially hiding in the shadows moved from a whisper to a scream.? Tom DeSavia?s opening to More Fun In The New World, ?We?re Having Much More Fun? is brilliant. And so is his voice on the audio b...

    I was on the periphery of the punk movement in my late teens/early twenties. I loved the music of X, Black Flag, and the Paisley Underground and Americana bands as well as English mod music. Still, I was not really a participant. First, I am from suburban Philadelphia which had a small...

    *audiobook review* As with anything beginnings are always better than ends. That extends to the L.A. punk scene. What?s interesting about this book is that it really documents the progression of where things went. Sometimes it?s really bizarre to see the connection with bands like ...

    Firstly I?m an X fanatic. There are probably no bands with a better first four albums. How they managed to do than in so short a time and sound as fresh as the first time you heard them has as much to do with Billy Zooms licks as it does the touching lyrical power of Exene and John. ...

    A continuation of 2016?s Under the Big Black Sun, More Fun in the New World follows a similar structure as its predecessor. This time around, the focus is on what happened to the scene from 82-87, who the important bands were (and how they succeeded or failed) and the influence they ...
