    a big old mouthful of a title, that one. it's too long for the title field, so here's the full version: "Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung: The Work of a Legendary Critic: Rock'N'Roll as Literature and Literature as Rock 'N'Roll." some of bangs' work (neither his zenith nor nadir are entirely represented), compiled by greil marcus. the collection does, however, does grab some gems, and anyone interested in new journalism should take a look, if for no other reason than his entertaining bull sessions with lou reed and saxophone assault on his aged landlady. good stuff. on a personal note, this book got me turned onto the troggs (of "wild thing" fame).
