Detailed Description
This is a story about living without a safety net-and getting away with it.

High-quality trade paperback
304 heavily-illustrated and ridiculously entertaining pages
Dimensions: 6" x 9"; 1 lb. (.4 kg)
Teenage punk rock milkman Ross Lomas strapped on a bass and joined G.B.H onstage in 1981. Leading the charge of U.K. hardcore punk, G.B.H lit up British pubs, European squats, and American highways with a wall of sound and mile-high spikes. Living by his own rules, for better or for worse, Ross Lomas riots with violent skinheads, metal hippies, rip-off managers, Neil Sedaka, and the Argentine cavalry, and tries to make sense of adulthood. Ross and his G.B.H family don't escape unscathed, but they never surrender.

Check out the table of contents, and a sample chapter, "Drugs Party in 526":



"Always doing what they felt like and having a laugh... absolutely captivating." -Vive le Rock

"The full, warts and all story of the band, a gripping read. Full of crazy punk rock antics from around the world... raw and honest" -Sidewalk

"To Ross' credit, he drills uncomfortably deep into the darkest corners of his psyche. An uneasy but always compelling read." -Record Collector UK
