What books am I missing?

Post by BasingSt78 » 07 Jan 2018, 4:53pm

I haven't bought a book about our guys in a long time. These are the ones I have read, and would welcome suggestions for additions to my

What about the Pennie Smith book? Not much reading, but the photos are nice.

Seconded
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Another vote for Route 19, a way better book than Last Gang in my opinion anyway.

Both great books.
Thing about LGIT is that for years it was the only book.

I have to confess that I gave up on Route 19 perhaps a quarter or a third of the way thru. Too proctological for my tastes. Maybe someday I'll try again, but I much preferred Last Gang (either version) as the narrative had a clear purpose besides thoroughness.

Agreed, much prefer Last Gang to Route 19, for the same reason. It's a headache of a book.

I have that "Clash FAQ" book sitting on my nightstand, but I have yet to open it.

Wow, couple there I’d either forgotten or never heard of to begin with. Plus, going to have to learn Italian and Japanese.

Those "FAQ" books can be pretty fun. The only one I've really read is "The Beach Boys FAQ" and it was a solid read. Nothing substantial, but a fun collection of thoughts and info - some of which made me laugh out loud. I think it depends on how well the author truly "knows" the band and their music.

Looking at Gary Jucha's Amazon bio it mentions that he "is currently writing a coming-of-age novel employing the Clash's legendary Bonds residency in Times Square in May to June 1981 as the backdrop."
