The first shock of punk hits the West Coast, and John Armstrong is at the center of the maelstrom. As Buck Cherry, lead singer / guitarist for the Modernettes, Armstrong met and made music with I Braineater, Joey Shithead, Dimwit, Chuck Biscuits, Mary Jo Kopechne, Art Bergmann and other punk luminaries. His account of drug-addled, booze-soaked days and nights with Los Popularos, DOA, the Subhumans, and the Modernettes brings this anarchic era to life.
"Very few recollections of a life lived in rock are this honest, or this funny." - William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties.
