I mostly don't like Lester Bangs But there are also a few things about him that I do like The essays about culture in this book ranged from really offensive to kind of interesting And in the ones about music I'm thinking now that I generally enjoy it when he's writing about something he likes is excited about because he has a way of transmitting that excitement and explaining it But I pretty much dislike his rants about things he hates It just gets too snarky and cruel I don't know maybe there were a few bits of that that are funny for me like for example when he referred to Kenny Loggins as a hippie panda I definitely laughed out of a sense of the cuteness of that image than derision for KL but that probably doesn't matter

Main Lines Blood Feasts and Bad Taste A Lester Bangs ReaderBefore his untimely Blood Feasts PDFEPUB #196 death in Lester Bangs was inarguably the most influential critic of rock and roll Writing in hyper intelligent Benzedrine prose that calls to mind Jack Kerouac and Hunter S Thompson he eschewed all conventional thinking as he discussed everything from Black Sabbath being the first truly Catholic band t. I finally read some Lester Bangs after all this time reading stuff about how he's the best rock critic of all time blah blah I feel very 50 50 about it I appreciate that he seems to recognize the uality of many of the grossly underrated women making rock music back in the day in a fairly non condescending way but then there are articles describing a Hell's Angels gang rape and long sexual fantasy seuences that are really horrible He has some good insights about the failures of punk and the moral uestions built into our fame obsessed culture in his article about Sid Nancy but then he has these long incoherent Hunter S Thompson esue rambles which are so dated and obnoxious Generally I think the articles where he is writing from a serious deeply felt place are great and the ones where he is trying to be funny self deprecating andor political fall flat
