City Baby: Surviving In Leather, Bristles, Studs, Punk Rock, And G.B.H
City Baby: Surviving in Leather, Bristles, Studs, Punk Rock, and G.B.H
This is a story about living without a safety net and getting away with it. Teenage punk rock milkman Ross Lomas strapped on a bass and joined G.B.H onstage in 1981. Leading the charge of U.K. hardcore punk, G.B.H lit up British pubs, European squats, and American highways with a wall of sound and mile-high spikes. Living by his own rules, for better or for worse, Ross Lomas riots with violent skinheads, metal hippies, rip-off managers, Neil Sedaka, and the Argentine cavalry, and tries to make sense of adulthood. Ross and his G.B.H family don t escape unscathed, but they never surrender.
Always doing what they felt like and having a laugh...absolutely captivating. --Vive le Rock
The full, warts and all story of the band, a gripping read. Full of crazy punk rock antics from around the world...raw and honest --Sidewalk
To Ross credit, he drills uncomfortably deep into the darkest corners of his psyche. An uneasy but always compelling read. --Record Collector UK
