This book is “a collection of writings on music that is considered aggressive throughout the world”. It features a chapter on hometown heroes Hellmouth that was written and edited by none other than Eric Abbey, the lead vocalist of 1592. Eric is a professor at Oakland Community College and has already written another book called Garage Rock and Its Roots: Musical Rebels and the Drive for Individuality. This book goes into detail about music that is normally considered aggressive, music that tends to cause the crowd to move, and sometimes even fight, something that patrons of Smalls’s know all too well.
Small’s is located at 10339 Conant in Hamtramck and doors are at 8 p.m. The cover is only $5 at the door. To buy an advanced copy of the book or to learn more about it click here.
