Book Description

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is history still alive. More than memory, it is our identity. Did we know what we were doing? Yes. We were coming in on energy. And creating the ultimate conflagration. Some kind of end-times party. It's all over because it's all over everything we see, hear, and do now. These writings overflow with exquisite passion for a juiced time. Eventually they swept the streets. But we were already out of there."--Thurston Moore, singer and guitarist for Sonic Youth
