We Got the Neutron Bomb by Marc Spitz

Book Description

Taking us back to late 70s and early 80s Hollywood pre-crack, pre-AIDS, pre-Reagan We Got the Neutron Bomb re-creates word for word the rage, intensity, and anarchic glory of the Los Angeles punk scene, straight from the mouths of the scenesters, zinesters, groupies, filmmakers, and musicians who were there. California was wide-open sex no condoms, no birth control, no morality, no guilt. Kim Fowley The Runaways were rebels, all of us were. And a lot of people looked up to us. It helped a lot of kids who had very mediocre, uneventful, unhappy lives. It gave them something to hold on to. Cherie Currie The objective was to create something for our own personal satisfaction, because everything in our youthful and limited opinion sucked, and we knew better. John Doe The Masque was like Heaven and Hell all rolled into one. It was a bomb shelter, a basement. It was so amazing, such a dive ... but it was our dive. Hellin Killer At least fifty punks were living at the Canterbury. You d walk into the courtyard and there d be a dozen different punk songs all playing at the same time. It was an incredible environment. Belinda Carlisle Assembled from exhaustive interviews, We Got the Neutron Bomb tells the authentically gritty stories of bands like the Runaways, the Germs, X, the Screamers, Black Flag, and the Circle Jerks their rise, their fall, and their undeniable influence on the rock n roll of today."
