Brian Cook's Rejected Daughters Book
 
Brian Cook (Russian Circles, These Arms Are Snakes, Botch) recently submitted a draft to the 33 1/3 book series. Unfortunately he didn't make the cut, but you can read the 2000-word first draft about Daughters here.

can't wait to read this

awesome read. maybe I was never into the right music but I never understood the appeal of the self-destructive artist that he describes so thoroughly here. It always seemed so cheap and pointless (GG Allin, for example - whom Cook mentions).

All I want is new daughters music. I can't wait to read this after work.

This was a good read. Made me want to give Hell Songs a second chance.

one of the most underrated band ever, nice to see someone not shitting on hell songs for once.

o my god I can not wait to read this!

Nice, I always like Brian Cook's writing, and I was in love with Hell Songs for a long time. Too bad it's not getting printed though.

Edit: Just read it, I wish he would have gotten the chance to write the whole thing, I hardly ever meet anyone who I feel like really gets Hell Songs.

theres an insane wait list on this book series if you want to submit one. i'd totally do a Thursday one if there wasn't.

Steve Muskopf 07/17/12 04:51 PM

excited to read the whole thing eventually. this is a kickstarter id back.

Naw, Hell Songs still sucks. 2nd-rate Arab on Radar.

But Canada Songs and self-titled? Backed. Their discography's like a shit sandwich with gourmet multi-grain bread.

I only got to see them live once and I do remember it being pretty weird, but not quite to the levels described here. Guess I just missed out on some weird shit.

Pretty sure Daughters isn't enough of an iconic band for this book series.

JoshCool7717 07/17/12 08:10 PM

Good read. Wish there was more. And Hell Songs is pretty bad ass.

isn't Clarity on the wait list? i don't even know how this works and the criteria, but having a book about one of the best records of the past century would be kind of very awesome.

PIG DESTROYER 07/18/12 01:50 AM

Damn. I'd read that book. Listening to their self titled right now, SO good. What a challenging band.

If that girl could see me NAAOOOOW.

Hell Songs was really good. I liked them a lot.

Clarity by Jimmy Eat World? Clarity is one of the best records of the past 100 years? Don't get me wrong I like that record, but imho you've missed out on alot of good music if you think thats one of the best records of the past 100 years. Not even close...

nah it's definitely one of the best records of the past 100 years... or should I arrogantly say "one of the best of all time"?

i'm not saying top 50 or 100 or 1000. i doubt i've ever listened to a thousand different albums. whether it is the best album ever or it is behind hundreds of other albums, it's up to you. i just think it's fair to say it is better than most albums.

1. I miss Daughters.

2. Why all the hate for Hell Songs? Their most focused effort. Self-titled comes close.

3. Love the 33 1/3 series.

4. Clarity is one of the best albums of the past 100 years. It's not even close to the best, but it is as good as any choice 10-100 could be on anyone's random list.
