Reviews

Before grunge exploded across the globe, Pavitt s fanzine and his columns for The Rocket were an illuminating source of information about what was happening to independent music during the 1980s. Gathered together in one volume, these reproductions of the original documents read as a vital history of that decade and the energetic, vibrant music that emerged. Edwin Pouncey, "The Wire"
"Now collected into a comprehensive volume, these writings document the emergence of a subculture that eventually bubbled up to the surface with the popularity of Nirvana and other grunge bands in the early 1990s.""Forbes"
"Buy it for your unattainable coffee-shop crush.""Esquire"
"Just as an index of underground bands alone, the book is invaluable. Here, Pavitt tracks small bands from inception to death, celebrating their tiny triumphs and documenting their disasters. He had an eye on it all, and it shows. His words are often the only proper record of many short-lived but amazing bands.""St. Louis Riverfront Times"
"Some pre-Internet realness.""The Huffington Post"
