Day #228: The Melvins – “A History of Drunks”
I finally finished reading Mark Yarm’s Everybody Loves Our Town. The story in a nutshell: punk and metal fans in Washington state formed a bunch of bands and a few record labels. They made some good music. Word started getting out. Everyone started doing a ton of heroin. Nevermind reached #1 on the Billboard charts. Lots of money was thrown around. The scene imploded. Then people moved on to the next thing.
Overall a good read, except for all the parts about Candlebox.
