Yet when members of his first band, Bitch Magnet, reunited after twenty-one years to tour Europe, Asia, and America, diehard longtime fans traveled from far and wide to attend those shows, which was a testament to the remarkable staying power of the indie culture that the bands predating the likes of Bitch Magnet willed into existence through sheer determination and a shared disdain for the mediocrity of contemporary popular music. Like Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential, Your Band Sucks is an insider's look at a fascinating and ferociously loved subculture. In it, Fine tracks how the indie-rock underground emerged and evolved, how it grappled with the mainstream and vice versa, and how it led many bands to an odd rebirth in the twenty-first century, in which they reunited, briefly and bittersweetly, after being broken up for decades. With backstage access to many key characters in the scene-and plenty of wit and sharply worded opinion-Fine delivers a memoir that affectionately yet critically portrays an important, heady moment in music history., ML419.F56A3 2015, MUSIC, MUSIC / Genres & Styles / Rock., MUSIC / History & Criticism., MWT11373916, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York, New York :Viking,2015., Read by Jon Fine., SOCIAL SCIENCE / Popular Culture., Unabridged., Your band sucks :what I saw at indie rock's failed revolution (but can no longer hear) /Jon Fine., Your band sucks :what i saw at indie rock's failed revolution (but can no longer hear)Jon Fine., [United States]:Tantor Audio ,2015., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781494591496_180.jpeg, n-us---, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume, xviii, 302 pages :illustrations ;25 cm
