1 out of 2 aint bad. how does this thread score?

(no I've not read it)
and bring it to Supersonic and Shellac ATP so I can leaf through it and decide whether I want to buy a copy myself.
Pretty much of all the introduction is on amazon. It seems readable and interesting. Will update if i do buy it! Got to finish my book on prog rock first (it goes on a bit)
...very chatty and wide-ranging, not particularly technical. Liked especially the chapters on Rowland S Howard, Bob Mould, Chasny, (surprisingly) John Frusciante, Lydia Lunch. Some are a little dull and it's clear the conversation didn't flow.
But, get it, I'd say..
