This is a wonderfully offensive scrapbook of a certain niche in underground culture, particularly in the late eighties and early nineties. You have this weird convergence of artists, punks, queers, satanists, neo-fascists, and Manson idolators. Even more than the typed interviews, so many of the images herein are a sight to behold. A lot of rare archival art, clippings, and a hefty helping of Manson memorabilia. One of the interesting aspects of this 'collection' is that many of the subjects have connected history and a sort of cliquish air pervades much of the book. It is also fun to pick out the juvenile con-artists of the bunch from the more authentic characters. All in all, a fascinating historical document pertaining to a shadowy underground that is more or less extinct. A monument of apocalypse culture. ( )
