Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Editors Blush and Petros ran Seconds, a self-consciously cutting-edge, late-1980s and 1990s music-and-culture journal that never got within hailing distance of commercial success. They interviewed a passel of interesting and notorious pop and counterculture players, and here they corral 45 of their finest colloquies. Actors Ron Jeremy and Joe Dallesandro (plus other Warhol Factory denizens), graphic artists Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and Robert Williams, authors J. G. Ballard and Allen Ginsberg, and rockers Wayne Kramer and David Bowie are among the miscreants interrogated. Alleged Charles Manson associate Bobby Beausoleil speaks earnestly of the circumstances that put him in prison and describes how his case became entwined with Manson's, thanks largely to another interviewee here, prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi. A rambling chat with reggae godfather Lee "Scratch" Perry proves an eye-opening verbal maze, and the exchange with hard-core band RaHoWa (Racial Holy War) is equally fascinating and disquieting. These interviews may be old, but many of the interviewees are as notorious as ever. A more fulfilling collection of outsider dialogues is hard to imagine. Mike Tribby
