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.

that's why you always leave a note.
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.

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

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.

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

sometimes you land where you began
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.

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