I just finished We Got the Neutron Bomb which is the untold story of LA punk. What a fucking brilliant time that was with some of the most intense characters of music history! I always loved the Germs, but never realized how influencial Darby Crash was. It's almost cute how all these 16 year old kids are running around fucking shit up, starting bands that exhibit adolescent fervor rather than skilled musicianship. That's totally what made it work!
Everyone knew someone in High School like Darby Crash, an eccentric genius who's life the other outcasts would marinate in 100%. Totally absorbing the words, ideas and actions of someone you would only come to find, junior or senior year, is a megalomaniac bitch, but still a genius. Heroin never helps, either.
Also, everyone had the coolest names back then; Tomata du Plenty, Helen Killer, Alice Bag, Kid Congo Powers, Geza X, etc.
When I was coming home from errands today, I decided that my name would of been Rat Turd. I don't know why, that shit just hits hard. It's the semiotics, nothing to do with personality or looks. . . just bangin' words.
