BOMP! Saving The World One Record At A Time (Ammo Books) From press text: BOMP! is the definitive survey of the wildly innovative magazine of rock & roll commentary and criticism that was published from 1966-1978.

From psychedelic garage bands to early insurgent punk rock, Bomp! provided a view-from-the-garage of the most crucial era in rock hisotry. Rare gems are featured here, many reproduced as facsimile pages, loke the first writing about The New York Dolls and The Sex Pistols.
