I picked up a copy of NOFX's book, put out a few years back.
Thoroughly enjoying this insight into Punk Rock culture. Feeling less like an outsider for preferring the Ska-yer Punk, as it makes more sense given my life, and outlook on it.
Recommend it for the non-squeamish music enthusiast who's sense of property is skewed.
Well you got me looking for her books now. Didn't see at Value Village though I didn't look extensively but I'll be checking the "P" section whenever I'm in a store with alphabetically arranged books.
Tis.Title? And is this the NOFX of White Trash, Two Heebs, and a Bean? (Though I can't imagine there could be more than one.) I never got into the band beyond that one album (more of a Ramones, Cramps, Misfits guy when it comes to punk) but I love it. Not sure what my favorite is - "Bob" and "Please Play This Song on the Radio" are definitely contenders and we can't forget "Buggley Eyes."
I haven't listened to all their music, but I keep coming back to the Ribbed album. And last fall I couldn't get enough of "You're Wrong"
I like how their music reminds me to engage in politics. My other punk favorites are apparently Dead Kennedy's, Bad Religion, (pre-pop) Blink-182, (pre-pop) Less Than Jake... most Green Day, most of the Flogging Molly I've heard...
Huh. I guess I like more punk than I thought.
I was heavily into Marvel and DC War comics when this hit the racks and while I occasionally strayed from the tried and true for things like The Creeper, Metamorpho, and Secret Six, The Geek held no attraction for me and no way was I going to sacrifice 12¢ on THAT! But now, whipping out my wallet like a Star Trek communicator, I surrendered to nostalgia. And it was pretty good. Tony Isabella, in his 1000 Comics You Must Read credits Joe Simon as writer and someone named Al Bare as artist, but the comic itself lists Joe Simon as both artist and writer. Who knows? I did buy the first issue of Prez just to have No.1, but never got around to reading it.Boy, I can remember when "Brother Power the Geek" came out. Weird comic book, died out quickly, definitely a product of the hippie days. I think there was another short-lived comic from the time called "Prez" (teenage President.)
Yeah, sorry 'bout that. Came out in 1972. By the way, since 1970 is actually the tenth year of the sixties (the 7 being a reference to the decade being completed) perhaps it shouldn't be excluded.
