Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As an adolescent, Justin Pearson moved with his mother from “Shit Creek Phoenix, AZ” to sunny San Diego after his father was murdered on Halloween. There, he fell in with a subculture of young musicians playing some of the most original and brutal music in the world. Turns out the chaos of Pearsons bands — The Locust, Swing Kids, and Some Girls — is nothing compared to the madness of his life.

An icon of the West Coast noise and punk scene, Pearson managed to arrive at adulthood by outsmarting skinheads and dodging equally threatening violence at home. Once there, the struggle continued, with Pearson getting beat up on Jerry Springer and, on more than one occasion, chased out of town by ferociously angry audiences.

From the Graveyard of the Arousal Industry is the outrageously candid story of Pearsons life. In loving, meticulous detail, Pearson gives readers the dirt behind each rivalry, riff, and lineup change.
