"For every successful local group that ever packed the Fillmore, Avalon, or Winterland Ballrooms, there were dozens of overlooked, and much better, groups that also hailed from the City by the Bay." Explore the primitive, rocking rhythm and blues of the fifties, the garage and psych of the sixties, and the seventies punk and new wave scenes with Cory M. Lindstrum's history zine. Spanning rock & roll's first three decades, these were the bands left out of the history books. Essential reading for music history nuts and record collectors and mandatory for all Bay Area devotees.
