Brian McMahonJaguar Ride – Memories Of An Electric Eel ... Book
HoZac, 2017. New Copy ... $32.99 34.99
A wild ride through trailblazing path of protopunk legends The Electric Eels and the early 70s Cleveland underground rock scene – a turbulent scene in a then incredibly gritty, struggling midwestern American city – with bands and sounds that predate and helped steamroll the path that led to the very existence of American punk rock in NYC years later. Really!! The book, rather than any kind of dry historical document detailing a pivotal band's place in a nascent scene, is the wholly unique personal narrative of Eels guitarist Brian McMahon and those close to him. It's a pretty amazing story, laid out in a really original way! One of most fascinating underground rock bios/autobios we've picked up in years! Paperback, 300 pages. Book
(1st edition. Limited to just 500 copies!)

✨✧ Sal MaidaFour Strings, Phony Proof & 300 45s – Adventures From Roxy Music, Sparks & Milk N Cookies ... Book
HoZac, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing little memoir by NYC born & bred bass player Sal Maida – hardly a household name, but a guy whose story ought to be known – having gone from an obsessive music fan and card carrying member of the Sparks International Fan Club to actually playing IN Sparks, but not until after some time playing bass in Roxy Music, and co-founding east coast power pop should-be legends Milk 'N' Cookies! His story and adventures don't begin or end in any of those situations, though. He's done session work in loads of Kim Fowley productions and all kinds of great stuff with fascinating characters, and while he could be forgiven for laying out his story by bragging, he never really does that here, starting out as a New York's Little Italy-bred Anglophile who kept finding himself and more and more interesting situations, but was first a starstruck fan. Written in his charming voice, and filled with his own photos and more. Paperback, 175+ pages and with a forward by Lenny Kaye. Book
(This first printing is officially sold out via the publisher...get it while we got it!)
