"Before his untimely death in 1982, Lester Bangs was arguably the most influential critic of rock and roll. Writing in hyper-intelligent Benzedrine prose that calls to mind Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson, he eschewed all conventional thinking as he discussed everything from Black Sabbath being the first truly Catholic band to Anne Murray's smoldering sexuality. In Mainlines, Blood Feasts, and Bad Taste fellow rock critic John Morthland has compiles a companion volume to Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung, the first, now classic collection of Bang's work. Here are excerpts from an autobiographical piece Bangs wrote as a teenager, travel essays, and, of course, the music pieces, essays, and criticism covering everything from titans like Miles Davis, Lou Reed, and the Rolling Stones to esoteric musicians like Brian Eno and Captain Beefheart. Singularly entertaining, this book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the history of rock."--Jacket
Ork Records : New York, New York ( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Where in the mythos of punk is there room for a frizzy-haired cinephile San Diegan? How could the defining rock attitude and look of the late 1970s get brainstormed by two go-nowheres from a boarding school in Hockessin, Delaware -- a D student and kid voted Most Unknown by his senior class? Forget the worn-out yarns about London gobbers and safety-pin piercings -- the true story of the birth of punk rock on 45 is the story of Ork Records, captured by Numero Group on two shiny compact discs. It is a story populated by iconic names like Television, Alex Chilton, Lester Bangs, Richard Hell, the Feelies, Patti Smith, Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Blondie and the Ramones. And it's a tale told from the hallowed grounds of CBGB, Max's Kansas City, and Ardent Studios. It all began with Terry Ork, a Jewish SoCal film nerd enthralled by Andy Warhol's posse as they made a transgressive surfing flick, who moved cross-country to manage a movie memorabilia shop on the grubby streets of the Lower East Side. Made in the shadow of disco and dereliction in late-70s Manhattan, Ork Records: New York, New York is not just the genesis of punk, it is the birth of the New York City scene and indie culture as we know it
Talking Heads chronology by Talking Heads (Musical group)( visu )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
"Lester was an enthusiast; he jumped headfirst into the scene and never looked back. This piece stands as a passionate prose poem about our place in regard to Nature, the Universe and Reality. Yes, that's what this is, not just a record review. Way ahead of his time, Lester describes a Matrix-like world, and he begins to peel back the covers, exposing an unfriendly Mother Nature and the paranoid Truth."
