All Shapes And Sizes Of ROCK-N-Roll Baby


'Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City' by Soffee, Anne, Thomas. I live in Southern California, and people visiting often want to see Hollywood. They want to see Beverly Hills. When they get to Hollywood, it is not at all, what they expect. They expect some Norma Shearer stardust dream of a place---and what they get is right out of NERD GIRL. Anne evokes this place as if channeling Nathaniel West and Charles Bukowski through the perceptual matrix of Wolf- Man Jack. She's all about Rock and Roll--and she wants to apply the razor of criticism to its pimply little throat. This is the prequel to SNAKE HIPS--that is to say it takes place just before. I like it better because....well...You read it.

'Fargo Rock City' by Chuck Klosterman. WoohhoOOOooo! Don't rate this book lower just because it was more than a book about metal music.... It deals a lot with Chuck Klosterman growing up in rural (Wyndmere) North Dakota, and the "culture shock" associated with being different in a small town. This is an enjoyable book for any music fan.

Fargo Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural North Dakota (Mobipocket) eBook edition by Klosterman, Chuck
It?s 1983 and Chuck Klosterman--a Wyndmere, North Dakota fifth-grader--wants to rock. His parents will not permit the long hair that his particular brand of rocking requires, but thankfully his brother returns from Fort Benning with the right tunes: Motley Cure?s Shout at the Devil. So begins Chuck?s love affair with heavy metal music, a genre that conquered the charts throughout the 1980s before disaffected grunge rockers like Nirvana and Pearl Jam laid it to waste in the early 90s.
