Jon and Conan talk about the many wonders of his memoir/recollection of a band called Bitch Magnet and a different time in independent music.
The book is “Your Band Sucks: What I Saw at Indie Rock’s Failed Revolution (But Can No Longer Hear)
Why polite dullards like Clapton play so limp and lifeless, A Minor Forest’s steam table pizza dashboard scenario, the harsh retrospection of “growing up” and all things in the weird, wild world of the glory days of indie rock.
