11334128_10153254823170041_3879585235370141783_oJoin me on my radio show this Tuesday the 9th at 4PM PST while I have Jon Fine, the author of a new book, “Your Band Sucks: What I Saw At Indie Rock’s Revolution.” He is currently on his book tour and stopping here in San Francisco on Wednesday the 10th at our very own Aquarius Records in the Mission District. Listen to the stream at

I’ll be giving away his new book as well to a few lucky callers courtesy of Penguin Books. Thank you, PB. So listen in and remember the good old days when your band got paid in beer and chips. HA! Cheers! ~DJ Naked Rob, SFCA

A memoir charting thirty years of the American independent rock underground by a musician who knows it intimately. 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 21 st  Century in which they reunited, briefly and bittersweetly, after being broken up for decades. Like Patti Smith’s Just KidsYour Band Sucks is a unique evocation of a particular aesthetic moment. 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.”
