Darkness, Racket and Twang: Essential Listening from the Fringes of Popular and Unpopular Music by Alex V. Cook
Originally published in personal journals and public websites, the pieces in this collection capture an original voice stepping beyond the veneer of rock-n-roll and and opening the doors of constant epiphany that the author experiences along the margins of popular, and more often, unpopular music. It is as much travel writing, documenting the psychic terrain of the music-obsessed, as it is criticism.
