Podcast #12 – Why Be Something That You’re Not
This week’s podcast is a little different. Rather than run this interview I did with Why Be Something That You’re Not author Tony Rettman on its own, I thought it best to drop it into the podcast proper. We talk about the genesis of the book, people he wanted for the book but couldn’t get, and future plans. I’ve also added in some songs from bands featured in the oral history of Detroit hardcore: Negative Approach, the Necros, et al, as well as some of the touring acts who feature prominently in the genesis of the Detroit scene.
Thanks again to Tony for taking the time to speak with me. Go buy his book, because it’s great. If you’re anywhere near the signings and shows for the book, stop by and get that sucker autographed, as well. Go buy some records from Touch and Go, for that matter.
