Summary
With only a guitar, a tatty copy of the Melody Maker, and his template for the perfect band, Andrew Matheson set out, in 1971, to make music history. His band, the Hollywood Brats, were pre-punk prophets--uncompromising, ultrathin, wild, and untamable. Thrown into the crazy world of the 1970s London music scene, the Brats recorded one genius-but-ignored album and ultimately fell foul of the crooks who ran a music industry that just wasn't quite ready for the punk revolution
Summary
Describes the story of the pre-punk band, the Hollywood Brats, who produced one brilliant, but often-ignored, album on the cutting edge of the punk revolution, before imploding and being overrun by music industry crooks
