“Your Band Sucks” What I Saw At Indie Rock’s Failed Revolution (But Can No Longer Hear)

by Jon Fine

Jone Fine is known as a successful American journalist, but he also has an interesting musical/punk past as a member of post-hardcore – and original ‘math-rock’ – outfit, Bitch Magnet (and part-member of Don Caballero and Codiene). A memoir from the perspective of a cynical DIY punker of the ‘Glory Days’ of American indie rock.  An outsider who was allowed inside, able to observe how the indie-underground emerged and evolved, and then grappled with the mainstream. “Fine looks back, in Your Band Sucks at the forces that propelled him—a shy Jewish kid on the nerd-freak-loser fringe—to learn guitar, start a band, and embrace a marginal musical culture. . . . In vivid prose, Fine details the process of touring and self-promotion—wheat pasting, mass mailings, crappy food, sleep deprivation—as well as the exultation of rocking out before the occasional packed house.” (The Los Angeles Times).
