The Device Trial (exp 11/16)

What started off as an adventure for a young Frenchman in America led to a lifelong passion for punk rock and the world stage. Phil Marcade brings us his inside look at the birth of punk rock in New York City in the late 70s and early 80s. He originally came over because of the poetry of the Beats but fell in love and decided to stay. He wound up in New York with a bunch of friends, and one day he and his mates formed a band called The Senders. This memoir recounts those early days: the bands, the people, the drugs, and the clubs. A lot of bands come and go, and he got to witness the birth of some of the most iconic music venues. This is not so much a narrative but instead more of a series of short stories, all told around the same concept of punk rock.

For fans of punk rock, this will be a trip down memory lane, especially all the bands Phil interacted with. He is full of stories, and whether all the stuff he has down is entirely accurate is a different matter; nevertheless, they are fun to read.
