Sweat stuff

Camion Blanc, my publisher in France, will be releasing a  French-language edition of Sweat: The Story of the Fleshtones, America's Garage Band in mid-March. They hope to have copies to sell at the Fleshtones' show in Bordeaux on March 15. Lisez tous au sujet de la roche superbe!

And to celebrate the 36th year of The Fleshtones existence, Continuum is offering copies of Sweat at 50% off until February 10th when you use the promo code BLUEWHALE at checkout on the Continuum website. (U.S. sales only)

Raise a Blue Whale here.


"Joe Bonomo has written a fine book: a book not only about a band or times passed, but also about the rare virtue of endurance." (Nick Tosches)

"This great book by Joe Bonomo really gets to the heart of who the Fleshtones are, and the price they paid. Now it's up to you to check out the Fleshtones when they hit your town. And in my own defense, that fire that Keith and I started in France was really a very small fire. Not worth mentioning at all. Please." (Peter Buck)

"Bonomo’s beautifully written band assisted account is both hilarious and tragic. There’s heroic excess, dogged obsession, personal tragedy and slapstick situations, and even if the Hall of Fame never beckons, The Fleshtones can at least count their name on one of the great music biographies.” Mojo (UK)

I'm seein' quintuple...
