Overall a great book about the band and their leader Highly recommended for any fan of the BJM or of music biographies in general Part 3 felt a bit rushed I would ve happily read a few hundredpages My only gripe is there was no detail about Anton Newcombe s schizophrenic breakdown around 2014. This is a really engaging book about a band musician that has always been something of an enigma The author did a terrific job taking a chaotic history and piecing it together I m a little over half way through and I look forward to going back to readevery evening Any fan of music who is even remotely familiar with The BJM or have seen or want to see DiG , this needs to be the next book you read. As a big fan of the BJM since 2003 or so, I was excited to read this book It does offer a lot to the hardcore fan, but ultimately it is poorly organized and conceived and, as a result, cannot be seen as the definitive statement on the band Valencia performed quite a lot of research in the writing of this book obscure magazine interviews, blog posts by Anton and others , and interviews he conducted

hardcore fan, but ultimately it is poorly organized and conceived and, as a result, cannot be seen as the definitive statement on the band Valencia performed quite a lot of research in the writing of this book obscure magazine interviews, blog posts by Anton and others , and interviews he conducted with some but not all of the key members of the group provide a lot of fascinating micro details to the hard core fan Indeed, Valencia seems to have spoken a lot with Jeff Davies and Matt Hollywood but not Anton , and their memories of key periods and events are worth their weight in gold Still, even for such a hard core fan, the book is a slog Valencia bogs down in the prosopography of the revolving door of the band and its friends hangers on Sometimes, I dare say, it doesn t really matter which band one of Anton s temporary girlfriends played in and we hear about all these obscure groups That is to say that Valencia often gets lost in the dense mass of details he has assembled, and his book lacks a controlling narrative or argument To be sure, given the tepid reaction of some fans to the narrative presented in Ondi Timoner s film, Dig , it might be wise to think hard about pushing a particular narrative structure onto Anton s strange genius But, ultimately, that s what biographers and writers must do, and for Valencia to default to an album by album, band member by band member approach whose only glue seems to be Anton s dictum Make Art Every Day , inevitably deprives the book of a central, guiding spirit So, as noted above, those already fascinated by Anton Newcombe and the BJM will find a lot of interesting detail to round out the picture of the band But the definitive history of this epochal group remains to be written final pet peeve Valencia seems to think that he s doing new journalism a la Tom Wolfe He isn t Merely reporting that he took 4 tabs of acid and listened to the band, or attended a few shows in the 2010s, does not push him into the realm of participatory new journalism In fact, the sections especially the end in which Valencia does inject himself into the story are the weakest ugh First of all, as a long time fan of the band in question, i was looking forward to this book since it was first announced with different publishers many, many years ago.Unfortunately, this book is plain and simply rubbish.Firstly, the whole book is barely readable It comes across as the worst of an undergraduate research paper or a beginners writing class group This is not the writing of a professional author, but rather someone undertaking a project to make credits for a part time degree It First of all, as a long time fan of the band in question, i was looking forward to this book since it was first announced with different publishers many, many years ago.Unfortunately, this book is plain and simply rubbish.Firstly, the whole book is barely readable It comes across as the worst of an undergraduate research paper or a beginners writing class group This is not the writing of a professional author, but rather someone undertaking a project to make credits for a part time degree It s like a rewrite of Wikipedia by a 6th grader who only has a set of pastel paints to write with.Secondly, and most offensively is that the book does not appear to have been proof read in any way, shape or form Atrocious spelling, grammar, typographic and layout errors are all the way through the book To just list a handful of grammar spelling examples 1 offering no further comment further 2 eschatology the science of last things 3 Phillip John, director of Downtown Abbey 4 Nothing is even remotely close to what I knew was a kid Even worse though, and destroying any integrity the book could have had, are blatant factual errors, which are not just differences in peoples memories, but easily fact checkable information, such as show lineups or dates or names If you can t understand how to spell Delia Derbyshire s name and accurately place her position in the history of this band, why bother The author also seems unable to distinguish between minor players in the bands story, giving them pages and pages of self aggrandising time, yet ignoring other key people who definitively made the band what it is The author lacks any filter to develop a truthful narrative and throws all opinions at the wall Unfortunately thisor less reads as Person A says this Then the very next line is an opinion piece by the author STATED AS FACTUAL INFORMATION The book falls apart on this, as a casual reader is simply unable to determine fact from fiction, as the author is unable to articulate the difference between the opinion of an interview subject and his own opinion.Finally, the author s attempts at a Hunter S gonzo style are frankly pathetic and embarrassing All his talk of himself frying on LSD, and others as tweeking and fiending come across as childish and immature with a deep lack of understanding of the cultural resonance of these things to the band and associates Let alone his references to his own making love to beautiful women and desperate attempts to place his own unknown band within the narrative Contrast this with the amazing writing and story told by Paul Drummond in his book Eye Mind The Saga of Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators, The Pioneers of Psychedelic Sound If you want to read a great book on modern psychedelic music, try Jim DeRogatis Turn On Your Mind Four Decades of Great Psychedelic Rock or his Staring at Sound The True Story of Oklahoma s Fabulous Flaming Lips Even David Brownes Goodbye 20th Century A Biography of Sonic Youth is an incredible example of how this book could have been written by a real writer.What a disappointment Don t go near this book Seems one of the band members is publishing something soon, you d be much better waiting for that Follows a chronological narrative of the BJM focused mostly on Anton Lots of wide ranging input from many tidbits of their history from a bunch of hanger on s key players alike Realistically the book could have been a bit shorter by excluding the author s personal narrative to the epilogue or prologue, cutting out anecdotal ramblings from friends of friends of friends, or bouncing jumbled events that ultimately carried less than no worth Kind of felt like I read the same thing a few differe Follows a

been a bit shorter by excluding the author s personal narrative to the epilogue or prologue, cutting out anecdotal ramblings from friends of friends of friends, or bouncing jumbled events that ultimately carried less than no worth Kind of felt like I read the same thing a few different times over the chapters But the aforementioned gripes could help a neophyte reader reflect the chaotic nature of the band it s history Very telling Anton Alfred Newcombe may be the most important musician alive and those who listen to and adore his music will be grateful for this, the first full length study of the great man and his band The heart of the book is really a commentary on Dig , the film that did so much to bring the band to popular consciousness and to shape our thoughts of the way that he and it seemed to work As AAN did not participate with the author, we have a series of sketches of the man that is long on exterior with Anton Alfred Newcombe may be the most important musician

that did so much to bring the band to popular consciousness and to shape our thoughts of the way that he and it seemed to work As AAN did not participate with the author, we have a series of sketches of the man that is long on exterior without being able to penetrate deeply into his soul The most poignant moment in the book and there aren t an awful lot of them describes the night at the Troubadour when AAN s sisters arrived to tell the man of their father s suicide while the band and their hangers on watched through a glass window upstairs This is not the final book on ANN and BJM but the author has done his job, holding the torch high that others may see It was somehow significant that Roky Erickson passed away during the weekend that I read this Jesse, thank you It can t be said enough for putting to page the things that happened The pure will and amazing amount of research that went into this account can t be discounted Anton s missing in action account is felt as a literary conceit rather than an omission or missed opportunity, so congrats on that But as you know Aton s story, is only part of the story Even in a one man band And as ever, that s what makes the band so great Omission, as much as collaboration, is art The notes y Jesse, thank you It can t be said enough for putting to page the things that happened The pure will and amazing amount of research

constructive criticizism is that this book reads a lot like a bunch of notes compiled in order over 10 years, as opposed to an ode, as you admit to full fledged band crush I was missing the feeling and emotion of that band love You say it But I didn t read it I was missing the passages of flowery language, or an occasional flourish or swish of your magic typewriter This book wasCormac Mccarthy s The Road than a book This happened This happened next Then this happened But before that happened this other band member did something to make this happen Which relates to the next thing Hard to follow And hard to keep interest, especially for the uninitiated bjm know nots It s like you were trying to write it as an impartial journalist, which you re not, and avoiding the deep introspection of a cultural attach , which perhaps you are Or which perhaps got edited out That said, if anton mat s revisionist lawsuits are any sort of lantern, I d say you can rewrite and update chapters of the digital copies of this book for the foreseeable future And when you do, I ll take a slashy on the credit
