I wanted to like this book more than I did, but truthfully it felt like a box of notes that someone shuffled into a book. It has a lot of basic facts about some of the major players, with a few tepid tales that just sound like clunker lies (and I was there for some of it!). Ultimately it felt like so much relevant information was missing, and that the author just didn't get the experience of being a part of a maligned subculture, especially in a place that was not Toronto or Vancouver. It just felt cobbled together.
Another book that focusses on the Toronto-centric roots of Canadian punk is "Treat Me Like Dirt". It is much more intensively researched and interviewed but both books left the impression that Canadian punks of that time/place were just complete jerks.Read more ›
