TVD's Daily Wax

"I'll probably never produce a masterpiece, but so what? I feel I have a Sound aborning, which is my own, and that Sound if erratic is still my greatest pride, because I would rather write like a dancer shaking my ass to boogaloo inside my head, and perhaps reach only readers who like to use books to shake their asses, than to be or write for the man cloistered in a closet somewhere reading Aeschylus while this stupefying world careens crazily past his waxy windows toward its last raving sooty feedback pirouette."
-Lester Bangs, "A Quick Trip Through My Adolescence", 1968

Blondie - X Offender (Mp3)
The Heartbreakers - Chinese Rocks (Mp3)
Dead Boys - Sonic Reducer (Mp3)
The Runaways - Cherry Bomb (Mp3)
New York Dolls - Personality Crisis (Mp3)

I loved EVERYTHING about this post. One of my favorite coverarts, excellent playlist (one of my best buddies is crazy about Debbie Harry and has adopted X Offender as her theme song), and HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF LESTER BANGS BEFORE? I feel like an utter ignoramous. I am going out to find "Mainlines, Blood Feasts, and Bad Taste" tomorrow and as soon as I've read it I'll let you know how much I loved it!
