Description
"Dry sarcasm and terse, slashing commentary color this fascinating portrait of the California sound and its epic tragicomedy". -- The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"The entire history of pop Los Angeles in all its splendour and excess: a dark drive deep into the city of night". -- Jon Savage, Author of England's Dreaming

"A comprehensive and critically astute history of the major developments and players in the Southern California music industry". -- Publishers Weekly

"A caustic, gossipy, refreshingly idiosyncratic history of the music business in Los Angeles...this is an unusually lively, provocative study". -- Kirkus

"An impressively researched and energetically written history of L. A.'s place in contemporary culture...Hoskyns writes with awesome command over his wide-ranging material". -- Time Out
