144 pages. Once again Ugly Things have dug deep to bring you some truly eye-opening stories and interviews. At last the story of the Groupies of 'Primitive' infamy is unveiled by Jeff Jarema and it's as depraved and comical as you could wish for. They're also thrilled to present Ned Hayden's revelatory, no-holds-barred interview with Johnny Blitz of the Dead Boys and Rocket From The Tombs. Then there's Jonathan Paley's career-spanning conversation with Steve Cataldo taking in his psychedelic days with the Front Page Review, Saint Steven, as well as Boston '70s punk renegades the Nervous Eaters. Skip Spence's wilderness years are explored, along with the tragic life of original Love drummer Don Conca (immortalized in their song 'Signed DC'), NYC garage outfit the Outsiders ('The Guy With The Long Liverpool Hair'), Hungarian beat combo Atlas, and Seattle garage rockers the Time Machine. Also, Wally Bryson talks Raspberries, Bill Furbee unpacks the history of the song 'Train Kept A-Rollin',' and Cyril Jordan pays fond tribute to his recently departed friend Roy Loney. And of course our comprehensive review sections covering the latest reissues and rock-related books.
