      I'm reading VIOLENCE GIRL the autobiography of Alice Bag. Tons o' fun, w/ some great pix and scoops on the L.A punk scene, it also doesn't skimp on her childhood in East L.A.

      Geza X was in an early incarnation of the Bags.

      Did ya know she went out w/ one o' the Weirdos?

      Published by Feral House, who publish some really interesting shit. Buy it!

      I HOPE THIS WORK BY a true American like Woody Guthrie, written in 1947 (!!!!!!!!!) and published recently, busts any RIGHT-WING Fascist ideas in the U.S.A. today like he did in yesteryear with his music and his guitar with the slogan on it: "THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS"!, COZ WE'RE ALL fed up TO THE MARROW of right-wing ideals ever since Reagan came to power!!!!!!

      Just finished 2 little blowdarts, the longest is 165p.

      That would be Anthony Bourdain's The Bobby Gold Stories, which follows the life of Gold over the years as he's busted for drugs, sent to prison, out working as muscle, and falling in love with a chef. As well crafted as his other books, and naturally it has a bit of kitchen stuff in it.

      The other is J.G Ballard's Running Wild, which is a sort of mystery. In a small (13 families) gated community someone has killed all of the adults and spirited away all of the children. Also very good.

      The Other Hollywood (2005), by Legs McNeil, Jennifer Osbourne

      This is like Please Kill Me in that it's an oral history, but this one focuses on the history of the porn industry.

      A bookshop- the luck of fools!! Yours has a nice cover. I had the Marvel edition with all of those B&W Berni Wrightson illustrations. Gorgeous, but I never could finish it.

      Nope, Dave - keep reading: They're all in there (except the OZ and US bands - this IS primarily a UK punk history)! But if you're wanting an even more complete work on punk rock than this, get Clinton Heylin's BABYLON'S BURNING, which IS the book you (and I) have been wanting for years, despite some glaring factual errors (like continually referring to The Avengers' "The American In Me" as their "debut single!" Grrr!)

      Update: Very heavy on the Stranglers (thumbs-up!), along with some Chris Bailey quotes. Hope a 2nd book is in the works with emphasis on Oz bands and lesser-known punk (Desperate Bicycles, Urinals, etc.).

      I just started Punk Rock: An Oral History, by John Robb, Oliver Craske  and it's not bad.

      It's not Please Kill Me (which it will inevitably be compared to), and it seems a tad Brit-centric, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. And it's got quotes by Rollins and Lemmy.

      The main thing is that there aren't any juicy/funny stories (so far), so by contrast it seems a bit dry. I'm still enjoying it, though.

      Here's a review.

      Haven't read any Rowling, but I read a review of this, and it does sound really intriguing. I'm ready after I clear my hold stack.

      P.S If you want fantasy for an adult, I recommend Susanna Clarke's JOHNATHAN STRANGE AND MR. NORELL. Excellent.
