at 7pm
A book release and reading by
(w/ Thurston Moore and Byron Coley)
“…one is reminded of Lautreamont and the Victorian diabolism of J.K. Huysman’s LA BAS, Edgar Allan Poe’s American Gothic sensibility, Baudelaire’s celebration of sensory derangement and an obsessive interest in sin, guilt and religious and supernatural iconography…hallucinatory, phantasmagorical…”
-Robert Palmer, THE NEW YORK TIMES

A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die – A Collection of Writings by Chris D. has just been published by New Texture Books.
Chris D. is one of contemporary L.A.’s true rock n’ roll and literary legends, former editor of SLASH Magazine, producer of records by The GUN CLUB, The DREAM SYNDICATE and The MISFITS amongst many others. Leader and chief songwriter of The FLESHEATERS, The DIVINE HORSEMEN and STONE BY STONE, Chris’ musical output has been one of the West’s laciest bludgeons for nigh on a lifetime.

On this occasion he will read from A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die and will sign copies, available for purchase.
Joining Chris this evening will be Thurston Moore, founding member of NYC’s avant rock dystopiasts Sonic Youth and rock-writer/poet/publisher Byron Coley both reading from their own and each others spurious archives.
