Lost legends and supergroups, the best, worst and oddest music to emerge from the explosive rock'n'roll breeding ground of the 1960s through to the 1980s.

LOVERS BUGGERS & THIEVES offers fresh perspectives on the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles (a comprehensive guide to Fab Four bootlegs and "outfakes"), interviews with Australian garage punk and psych legends of the sixties, the musical legacy of Charles Manson, Skip Spence, The Monks, The Sonics, Bonzo Dog Band, Screaming Lord Sutch, and other music and musicians dragged back from the edge…

Foreword by Eddie Shaw, bass player for the legendary & influential Monks.
Introduction by Michael Lucas, bass player for The Phantom Surfers.

Reviews

“Paranoid, insane ramblings and nuggets of sense — what rock writing should really be all about” Metal Hammer

"A hugely entertaining read" ICE

“Not for the easily offended” Mojo

“Touching much of the same ground as the beloved UGLY THINGS but with perhaps a broader spectrum, this initial volume includes several essays that will interest regular visitors to this site, including a really great article by editor Jones on the Monks” 60sgaragebands.com

“One for all the outsiders out there” Record Collector

“The lovingly detailed potted histories of The Monks, The Sonics and Skip Spence make this worth dipping into, at the very least” Rock Sound
