Publisher's Summary

In this engaging memoir, a small-town Florida teenager discovers punk rock through a loaned mix tape, and before long, punk music and culture slowly take over all aspects of his life. His new passion causes him to form a band, track down out-of-print records that he loves and begin to reissue them, open a record store, begin a record distribution operation as a public service, mentor a host of young musicians, and befriend all manner of punk luminaries along the way. Slowly, his life's pursuit pushes him to the point of personal ruination and ultimately redemption.

In Microcosm's first-ever audiobook, the unabridged book is read by the author and includes excerpted songs from most of the bands featured in the book!

    "A great telling of great bands and great stories from Bob!"

    The audible book of this book is what I listened to over several hours in the evening and night. You can really tell Bob's fondness over great moments like touring with Rattus and meeting great people in the Punk scene. And you can also tell Bob's emotional feelings towards his two bitter breakups, and the death of his friend who was stabbed to death at a Punk show for "being a nice guy."

    However, the highlights of this book include the great records Bob got into and released! This audiobook also features a song from some of these records!

    Recommended to Punk record buffs like myself and anyone who wants to get into the music but doesn't know where to start.
