Brian Cook's Rejected Daughters Book

Posted by - 12:01 PM on 07/17/12
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.

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).

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

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.

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.

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