About this title


"A heavyweight celebration of the roots of rock fandom. Eye-popping cover art by the immortal William Stout. This is the ultimate anthology of rock 'n' roll fandom from its inception to its mid/late 1970s heyday. Book includes 300 pages of reproductions from Greg Shaw's pioneering 70s era zines Who Put The Bomp and Bomp! Essays by Jon Savage, Alec Palao, Ken Barnes, Suzy Shaw and Mike Stax; '60s garage and beat, surf music, British invasion, girl groups, rockabilly, acid punk, and psychedelia. Obsessively detailed discographies and label listings, plus reams of readers' letters and never before published material. The sheer volume of historical information is almost mind-boggling. Also included are reprints from Shaw's obscure personal zines, Metanoia and Liquid Love, circulated in 1970-72 to just a handful of friends and fellow writers. Aside from including a huge selection of Shaw's insightful writing, BOMP! 2 also includes rare early work by celebrated rock scribes like Ken Barnes, Lester Bangs, Lenny Kaye, Richard Meltzer, Dave Marsh, Mike Saunders, Phast Phreddie and more. Featuring artwork by underground artists like Jay Kinney, William Stout and Tom Kirk."

Store Description

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!
