    great live band - know what performing means. Saw them at Camden Underworld years ago + there was a lot of confrontation - suspect some people in the audience were stooges - but hey - professional wrestling meets post-punk swamp blues - who's complaining?

    A LONG SLOW SCREW is the novel. FIGHT: EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ASS KICKING BUT WERE AFRAID YOU'D GET YOUR ASS KICKED FOR ASKING is non-fiction. And I have not won a gold medal in anything. But I compete all the time. And I don't pick fights with ANYone in the audience. I just have a highly refined sense of politesse. Hope that helps.
