Interesting Book To Check Out!

This book was published back in 2001 but I picked up this book recently and was totally impressed. The book is called We Got the Neutron Bomb : The Untold Story of L.A. Punk by Marc Spitz and Brendan Mullen. This book focuses on the rage, intensity, and anarchic glory of the Los Angeles punk scene, straight from the mouths of the scenesters, groupies, filmmakers, and musicians who were there. It is amzing to read the story of how The Germs started as well as bands like X, The Zeros, The Screamers, The Weirdos, The Runaways, Zolar X and a host of others! Starting in 1971 with Jim Morrison and the glitter rock invasion and ending in 1981 with the Go-Go's commercial success, this book presents raw quotations from vital scenesters, promoters, and musicians. I highly recommend this book.
