Between 1969 and 1988 "Creem" magazine, straight from Detriot Rock City, stood at the forefront of youth counterculture with its brazen slogan "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine". Now the Mouth of Motor City presents a retrospective of the beautiful haze that was Rock's golden age from the end of hippie through glam and punk and into 80's metal. "Creem" the book is for fanatics by fanatics. Irreverence, but not just for the sake of being irreverent-all in full-colour baby. It was created by Detroit publisher Barry Kramer in 1969 with an incredibly gifted staff of scribes, editors, photographers, and graphic artists whose work continues to resonate today, including Lester Bangs, Dave Marsh, Greil Marcus, Robert Crumb, Robert Christgau, Charles Auringer, Nick Tosches, Richard Siegel, Tony Reay, Jaan Uhelszki, Richard Meltzer, Dave DiMartino, a not so famous Cameron Crowe, and Robert Matheu. They laid waste to the stifling conventions of rock journalism with rapid and raucous reporting on everyone from MC5, Grand Funk Railroad, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Blonde to Led Zeppelin, the Stones, the Clash, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Black Sabbath and KISS."Creem" magazine was known as the true music magazine for fans that followed the bands of late 60's through the 80s. It was distinct from "Rolling Stone" as it was always about the music and not about covering the latest Pop crush. Its influence spread across many rock genres and the writers coined the terms "Punk" and "Metal". Almost Famous: "The Cameron Crowe" movie put the spotlight on "Creem" magazine and its infamous writer Lester Bangs once again and it relaunched in 2003, now once again at the forefront of the music scene sponsoring tours and concerts.
