A small-town Florida teenager discovers punk rock through a loaned mix tape, and punk music and culture slowly takes over all aspects of his life. His new passion causes him to form a band, track down out-of-print records he loves and reissue them, open a record store, start a record distribution operation as a public service, mentor a host of young musicians, and befriend all manner of punk luminaries along the way. Slowly his life’s pursuit pushes him to the point of personal ruination and, ultimately, redemption.

“Bob Suren delivers some great punk rawk history through anecdote and wit, intermingled with personal stories.” Ami Lawless, Voetsek
“A passionate and cautionary tale of the ecstasy and dark side of a serious vinyl addiction…A must read for anyone who collects anything!” Tesco Vee, the Meatmen
“Really brings to life the early days of the American punk scene as it spread slowly across the country, through turntables, fanzines, and word of mouth.” Jeff Nelson, Minor Threat

“It’s our story. It’s a shared punk rock story…A delight to read because so much is recognizable, and he remembers things that make me laugh.” Chris Chacon, Borderless Country Tapes
