THE BOOK

Brian Robert Setzer, James Robert McDonnell and Leon Drucker are three neighbors of Massapequea, a small town in the county of Nassau, in the state of New York, who share an excessive fondness for music and who after discovering the pioneer artists of the  r & r  They will start  an incredible adventure That will forever change lives and That of Their many fans.

In June of 1980, after gaining a reputation in the local scene, they fly to London, attracted by the explosion of the rockabilly genre  , with the intention of spending the summer and trying their luck. Surprisingly, a few weeks later appear on the cover of the influential New Musical Express magazine   and some members of the most famous bands (The Clash, The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, The kinks) come to see them and are shocked by their music, their aesthetics and its direct explosives.

TESTIMONIALS

"But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain, the whole thing expound the actual teachings of the great truth and the master-builder of human happiness sufficient. None of pleasure itself, because it is pain or avoids, but because encounter consequences that are the pains of those who are to pursue pleasure rationally aware of them. nor Moreover, any person belonging to their distressing anguish alone, that it dolor sit amet, consectetur, to obtain it wants to, but because they do not never be attached to the modes of the times of the fall so that the labor and sorrow, some great, look for the pleasure. Download information as a vCard E and who of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it."

" Very nice indeed. I’m not typically a fan of minimalist themes, but this is very slick, Kudos! "

Copywriter

" Very nice indeed.Difíciles de entrevistar y poco colaboradores con los biógrafos, al contrario que los Ramones, que cuentan con tantas biografías como fans, lo que sabemos de la banda son cuatro manidos datos habituales en todo reportaje… hasta la llegada de este libro. Cuarenta años desde la formación de la banda han hecho falta para que un valiente recoja el guante de tamaño desafío. Una biografía tan intensa como extensa para atar cabos, sorprenderse, gozarla y hasta cabrearse en algún momento. I’m not typically a fan of minimalist themes, but this is very slick, Kudos! "
