Full, pursed lips protruded beneath the bushy black moustache and, at their corners,...

“One of the most horrific chapters in American history is brought back to the national consciousness with alarming detail in Killers of the Flower Moon.

Our Band Could Be Your Life

Scenes from the American Indie Underground, 1981-1991

By Michael Azerrad
Narrated by: Phil Elverum, Stephin Merritt, Jon Wurster, Corey Taylor, Merrill Garbus, Michael Azerrad, Colin Meloy, Fred Armisen, Laura Jane Grace, Dave Longstreth, Jeff Tweedy, Jonathan Franzen & Sharon Van Etten
Length: 21 hours 6 minutes

Our Band Could Be Your Life

“This is my absolute favorite music book - in-depth looks at indie rock bands all across the country during the late 1970s and 1980s showcasing the diversity of music on the margins throughout that decade. Punk aggression, twee affectations, jangly power pop, and college radio bands are all linked in their rejection of the mainstream (at least until they signed to major labels).”
