I was at the Release Party/Concert in LA, back in November 2007. But I couldn't buy it there Or even see one! The 30th anniversary of the Masque was a Blast then & this book is a Great addition to the Memories of that Night. If you couldn't be there in the Original days, or the night of the show, this will make up for it!
Bands! Clothes! Stars! Cars! Girls! Guys!
The Best Rock scenes Form & Develop themselves, & LA was no Exception. Even though "inspired" by London & New York, LA's insular scene made for a More Original, sounding & looking bunch of Bands & Fans. This Book's images, by the Best Underground snappers & scenesters, give the Best insight to What it Must have been like to be in that Lucky group rockin' in that smelly old Basement!
I went to LA in 1978, as a 10 year old, & I distinctly remember seeing a Bunch of "weirdos" on Hollywood Blvd. I returned in 2003 & Made my Bee-line to that Back alley after Years of being under the LA scene's Musical Spell. It's just a Locked door now, but I'm at least thrilled to now have this Document of those far gone days.
I Love Brendan Mullen's insight & anecdotes of the Scene. Nothing about Cashing in on it, Just filling his Need to protect the History of a Scene, & punk world taken over by the Posers & Millionaires of the So called "Punk Rock" "scene" of today. a Great Companion to the book: We've got the Neutron Bomb!
Literally a Snapshot into just a few fleeting years in the Music History of LA.
I had experiences playing in that band, at that time, that I could have had no other way. There were the drugs, the alcohol, and the slime encrusted Music Biz bottom feeders that seemed to be everywhere looking for someone to use. There were also some great times that I will always treasure.
The book is well put together and Brendan has much insight in to the era and the people who shaped the movement on the west coast. Highly recommended for pop music history buffs.
I have a book on Amazon in April 2010 called One Step Beyond: A Teenage Odyssey in 1980s Los Angeles. Please check it out. Click on my signature thing to find my profile. Thanks.
