Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the dankest rat hole basements to flash arenas, here is a wild ride through Rock 'n'Roll's nightmare -moments. Rife with hellfire confessionals straight from the bruised lips and shaky hands of jobbing bands, Gigs from Hell strips the mythology and starry-eyed allure of life on the road to its barest essentials-puke, sodomy, rip-offs, come-downs, and the odd stab at glory.

Collected and translated from drunken rock-speak by speedball music writer Sleazegrinder, Gigs From Hell is a rare glimpse into what it's really liketo tour, record, and survive in the cutthroat world of the -music industry-no holds barred, full speed ahead, the most cringe-worthy moments fully intact.

Foreword by Vadge Moore, drummer for the Dwarves.

Synopsis:

Gigs that have gone wrong — true stories as told by the bands who lived them.
