This book is alive and fantastic in as many ways as it is depraved and degrading The introduction says it all From this 3rd generation 1980 1981 LA punk rocker I offer only thanks and kudos on a most telling portrait and reportage of some certain truths and conseuences of being an actual punk rocker in late 1970 s Los Angeles in this well written memoir of the author s youthful and otherwise indiscretions The only thing that bugged me and just a little was how much he seemed to have such a dislike for Claude Kickboy Face Bessey yet in a way his writing reminds me so much of the diatribes and rants I only heard Claude rip in Decline so what do I fucken know I do know I was lucky enough to see the Weirdos at the Whiskey in 1981 and was instantly hooked on punk rock big time though this story sadly and ironically ends in an early December 1980 tragedy The music the energy and the scene were all raging while oldtimers like Allan and Rick Mau Mau Wilder who almost fell over in a dope stupor asking me for a light at the Anti Club in 1982 while proclaiming Punk is Dead had perhaps prioritized other things at that time and that is all fine The Mau Mau s one of LA s lost great punk bands are still revered and loved by many including myself so no disrespect intended to the author or Rick Reading twisted tales involving Black Randy was than enough to get me through this book but the other stories hook it all together And every generation of punk rock is for the youth even if they are doing it wrong and I ll just leave it right there 5 stars

Read á PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Î Allan MacDonell Punk Elegies True Tales of Death Trip Kids Wrongful Sex and Trial by Angel Dust characters Ì 106 Allan MacDonell Î 6 Free download Punk Elegies arrives like a chemically unstable mixture of Richard Yates and Damon Runyon Set along Hollywood Boulevard at the birth of punk and the death of the seventies the thirty three melancholic comic lament. I am having a hard time reviewing this book because parts of it were laugh out loud funny like the description of the Time Motor Lodge the most famous hotel in LA for 15 minutes because it had been the scene of a police shoot out the day before and even the refrigerator was pocked with bullet holes Although MacDonnell comes off as kind of a jerk I admire him for at least admitting itHaving been on the periphery of the New York punk scene I recognize many of the behaviors chronicled here However the LA Punk scene exceeded New York s capacity for outright nihilism by light years What in the world do they put in the water out there This makes Danny Sugarman look like Pat Boone At least he never shot up Angel Dust before a big job interview at AM Records the label that famously signed and dismissed the Sex Pistols in one afternoonThe big problem I have with this book is that he literally gets so blotto in every scene that he remembers almost nothing of his encounters with greatness the only thing he DOES remember is missing The Jam at the Whiskey A Go Go in 1977 the concert of the century because he had to attend to his wife who was puking in the parking lot She eventually gets her act together and leaves him although the book just ends very abruptly and doesn t explain exactly when her patience finally ran out We just know that he regrets losing herIf you are looking for stories about The Go Gos The Germs X or any of that ilk you won t find than passing references here What you will find is endless tales of scoring heroin speed and dust in sualid apartments and a gay bathhouse in San Francisco which was another WTF are they thinking moment although I admit I laughed hysterically And getting invites to the better parties always ended with him doing something stupid either getting too trashed and wrecking the place or stealing from the hosts And like the Missing Persons song Walking in LA points out only a nobody walks in LA which the author did uite a lot of I would have appreciated a linear timeline because once he mentioned Darby Crash s suicide pact with his girlfriend and then later he is having a conversation with him outside of a Clash concert It was massively confusing because he seemed to be going in chronological order up until that pointThe biggest thing for me was that he got the time of John Lennon s assassination slightly wrong After noting that Darby Crash of the Germs had committed suicide that Sunday in what was intended to be a grand gesture which would get the whole town talking but was obviously overshadowed the next day the author claims he found out about Lennon in Monday morning s paper However the world did not find out until later in the evening when Howard Cosell famously announced it on Monday Night Football How did that make it past an editor I cannot be the only one who noticed this
