Book summary

The definitive history of Seattle music from the '60s to the mid '90s, and the ultimate 227 page 'zine for the scene slathered with interviews, photographs, concert posters, and insider reportage from someone who was there the (w)hole time. Having been in a parade of Seattle bands over the last seven years, I can attest to the accuracy and encyclopedic coverage of the names and places, and the description of the entire "practice space/gig/party/wander-around-aimlessly- dumpster-diving/ crash/wake-up-for-a-latte" lifestyle. Of course, there are some omissions (for example, my all-time favorite Seattle band, The Tone Dogs, is barely mentioned), but none of the losers east of the 520 Bridge or west of the OK Hotel would notice. If you get this book, you should definitely consider snagging Screaming Life, a collection of the best of Charles Peterson's black-and-white photographs of Nirvana, Screaming Trees, Hole, Soundgarden, and friends.
