BOMP!: Saving The World One Record At A Time $34.95
BOMP! is the definitive survey of the wildly innovative magazine of rock-and-roll commentary and criticism that was published from 1966-1978. Before Spin and Rolling Stone, there was Bomp! From psychedelia to punk, Bomp! was THE music magazine for serious rock-and-roll aficionados.
Bomp!'s founder, Greg Shaw (1949-2004), was neither a singer nor guitar player but still became a legend in rock and roll. Greg's legacy of two magazines, Who Put the Bomp! and Mojo Navigator, were wild treasure troves of writing and graphics that gave birth to the modern rock press as we know it today. From psychedelic garage bands to early insurgent punk rock, Bomp! provided a view from the garage of the most crucial era in rock history. Rare gems are featured here, many reproduced as facsimile pages, like early interviews with The Doors and The Grateful Dead, to the first writing about The New York Dolls and The Sex Pistols. In between the writing, the original and vintage artwork and graphics amplify the vibe of the era.
Sure to become a cult favorite, this book is a must have for the serious music aficionado.
