"To celebrate the life and work of the late, great Greg Shaw , who passed away in 2004 , we are giving away the BORN IN THE GARAGE BOOK. You just pay the post. If you love music, you need this book!
NOTE- If you have a record store, charity, radio station or any venue that could use a good book give away, we will donate the BORN IN THE GARAGE books if you pay post! We want people to enjoy the book rather than have them sitting in a warehouse. Just send a note to Suzy and we’ll take care of you.
BOMP PART II is a heavyweight celebration of the roots of rock fandom. Eye-popping cover art by the immortal WILLIAM STOUT! This is the ultimate anthology of rock 'n' roll fandom from its inception to its mid/late 1970s heyday. The book includes 300 pages of reproductions from Greg Shaw's pioneering 70s era zines WHO PUT THE BOMP and BOMP! ESSAYS BY Jon Savage, Alec Palao, Ken Barnes, Suzy Shaw and Mike Stax 60s GARAGE AND BEAT ,SURF MUSIC ,BRITISH INVASION ,GIRL GROUPS ,ROCKABILLY ACID PUNK and PSYCHEDELIA,along with obsessively detailed DISCOGRAPHIES and LABEL LISTINGS , plus reams of readers' letters and never before published material. The sheer volume of historical information is almost mind-boggling. Also included are reprints from Shaw's obscure personal zines, METANOIA and LIQUID LOVE, circulated in 1970-72 to just a handful of friends and fellow writers."
