I loved this book! I wish I owned it!

Great art - great coffee table book. It's full of pictures and posters and record albums. The pages are covered in song lyrics, the articles are so interesting.

Lots of rock, rockabilly, punk, country - and lots of cars. Lots of fun.

I know a lot of these songs and a lot of these bands.

I didn't read all the articles so I think I'll be checking this out from the library again. I did end up singing on just about every page with all the song references in it. ("Here I come in my '57, she's a real low rider, paint perfection. . . . )

I have to quote this book. This is my music and it is a great description.

"The Alt-Rock-Country-Roots-Rockabilly-Car-Lovin' Sound.

An affectionate parody of liberal-reared, local trailer-park culture, melding a skewed - but always heady - gonzo outlook with a wild, careening brand of highly informed, retro-minded roots-rock, incorporating a southern-fried amalgam of psycho-rockabilly, classic Canned Heat-John Lee Hooker boogie, and alt-country-swamp-pop, plus a dose of California surf guitar, a hint of punk attitude, a splash of tongue-in-cheek, and an altogether wise-ass party bank approach delivered with raunchy grooves, a bluesy rumble, and manic showmanship.

Southern Culture on the Skids? Deke Dickerson? The Drive-By Truckers? Dave and Phil Alvin and the Blasters? Lucinda Williams? The Reverend Horton Heat? The Paladins? Iguanas? Bottle Rockets? Jeff Tweedy and Wilco? Kings of Leon?

What links all of them to each other is their love for car, truck, and road imagery set against their own, individual road maps across the new millennium."
