honest just started reading but it has a coherent theme of b list rockers who have their own cults - it's a unique find for rock anthologies - my mistake was i thought it was a tab book. but now i am more impressed by the bios of obscure (except for morrison).

Authors Wayne Jancik(The Billboard Book Of One-Hit Wonders) & Tad Lathrop have compiled a fun book of rock's lords, losers & lunatics. While no one would ever agree on the list of artists to be included in a book like this, these guys have done a commendable job. Some of my personal favorites include Johnny Thunders, Husker Du, The Replacements,The Clash, Eddie Cochran, Elvis Costello, Gram Parsons, The New York Dolls, The Pogues, X, Roky Erickson, VU, Tom Waits & well, you get the idea. Each band gets about one to four pages. There are plenty of black & white photos included. There is also a list of what the authors consider to be the bands key recordings. I think you'll enjoy seeing some old favorites in here, and you might discover some new oddities worth checking out. The segment on Blowfly is hilarious. This isn't just punk/alternative bands...it goes back to Robert Johnson. It's always nice to see Flipper(the band, not the dolphin) appearing in a real book. This one is not some cheap, rush-job production. It certainly won't embarrass your shelves. Cult Rockers is not, by any stretch of the imagination, the end-all/be-all book on this subject, but it is a fine one!
