Description

Frontline writings from the music war by Byron Coley. C’est La Guerre is a perfect snapshot of a time of great changes in American music, one that saw the emergence of new kinds of untamed rock, punk, and noise that extended the explorations of free jazz and of rock innovators like Captain Beefheart. These early essays, articles, and letters crisscross the continent and cover a wide array of musical acts, including David Bowie, Robert Fripp, Fred Frith, Devo, Hüsker Dü, Suicide, The Germs, Lydia Lunch, Jim Morrison, the Meat Puppets, and the Minutemen, whose bass player, Mike Watt (now with the Stooges), contributed the introduction. Byron Coley was born in Manhattan in 1956. He has written extensively about underground culture since the mid-'70s. Among other things, he has been resident editor at NY Rocker, managing editor at Take It!, jazz editor at Forced Exposure, underground editor at Spin, ghost editor of the Ecstatic Peace Poetry Journal, etc. He has been a columnist for the L.A. Weekly, Arthur, Spin, Le Bathyscaphe, Harp, The Wire and so on. His books include Chuck Norris, Ass Candles For Joni, Beefheart and No Wave which he wrote with Thurston Moore. He has written liner notes for hundreds of records, spewed for more 'zines than anyone could ever remember, and contributed to various anthologies of prose, poetry, and pus. He currently writes for The Wire and runs Glass Eye Books and the Ecstatic Yod record label. Cover drawn & silkscreened by Simon Bossé. 142 pages. Bilingual, translated by Marie Frankland (John-Glassco Translation Prize, 2007). 6.5 × 6.5 inches.
