Inhaltsangabe: This companion to "Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung" compiles fifty-four of Bangs' pieces, including several that are previously unpublished. Lester Bangs was for many the most intelligent and influential critic of rock and roll. Twenty years after his death, interest in him continues, as shown by the recent critically acclaimed biography "Let it Blurt", and his work still resonates with breathtaking insight and audacity. This marvellous book, edited by John Morthland, Lester Bangs' friend, literary executor, and fellow rock critic, contains exerpts from an autobiographical work Bangs wrote as a teenager, as well as cultural rants and obsessive rages, and incisive reviews from throughout his career - from Black Sabbath as a Christian band, to Anne Murray as sex object, to Bob Dylan as a fraud, and, of course, the Stones, Lester Bangs' favourite band and bete noir. Endlessly entertaining, this book is a must for anyone with any interest in the history of rock and roll.
Über den Autor: Lester Bangs started out as a record reviewer for Rolling Stone, went on to write for and then edit the magazine Creem, before moving to New York and covering the burgeoning punk scene, writing in daily newspapers and the Village Voice. Bangs died suddenly at the age of 33 in 1982. A biography of Lester Bangs, Let it Blurt was published in 2001.
