Lemme get a couple things straight....I really don''t care about Lookout Records. I don''t like a lot of the bands on there, if any. I guess I liked the first Donnas singles and LP. But I''ve participated in some "friendly" discussions with Larry on Usenet back when people used Usenet, I always found him a funny and insightful man, even if the Venn diagram where our tastes meet is very, very small. I bought this book because I am a fan of that particular point in time musically, though not the geography at all. I''m interested in independent labels, especially the ones who maintained integrity, and I knew it would at least be funny because Larry is a funny guy. I was really impressed with this book and with Larry. He was very candid about his pre-Lookout years and very open about when he messed up. He shares credit but not so much blame. The last few years of his involvement in Lookout, it''s quite easy to see why he left when he did and how he is happier for it. There''s some funny rock and roll stories in here, some quite harrowing personal details about Larry''s life and the lives of his label mates, just enough name dropping to keep you interested and Larry''s wit which sparkles on every page. Unlike a billion other rock and roll books, this was written 100% by Larry - it''s obvious on every page.

I grew up with Lookout Records and was just a liiiittle too young to have been part of the early days, but back then the only way you learned anything about what was happening was by waiting for zines to come out or having a slightly older friend who drove up to San Francisco/Berkeley for shows and then hearing about them.
Still, I was lucky enough to have friends back then who introduced me to Operation Ivy, Green Day, Crimpshrine, and the rest. Some of my friends would leave high school on a Friday afternoon and spend the weekend in the East Bay and connecting with musicians and artists. One of them even ended up in Larry''s band, so I got my own little fleeting touch with the label in its heyday, albeit from 400 miles south of Gilman St. When Larry left we were mostly left to rumors and a label that we all tried to believe in, but didn''t quite understand in the same way.
I was really happy to revisit my early punk days through Larry''s eyes. These stories came across as balanced as can be hoped for from the perspective of one person who lived in the center of a major cultural shift. Larry had the benefit of writing this with wiser eyes than he admits having during the booming years of Lookout Records. Some stories were his take on legend, passed through punk houses and coops across the country, and others were new to me.
From my own sheltered understanding, it was eye-opening to see who Larry thought of as the movers and shakers back then, and how they were making choices for bands to release. He responds in an even-handed way to the "real punks" who accused Lookout of selling out, and he does his best to give people a chance who he thinks contributed to the downfall of the label.
If you ever made a mail order to lookout and got bonus swag, hung a catalog poster on your wall, or thought that Lookout logo looked like it just didn''t fit against the blocky hard-lined layout of an Avail record, this book is worth your time.

As a huge fan of early Lookout! Records bands such as Screeching Weasel, Green Day, and The Mr. T Experience it was extremely interesting to hear the story from the man behind the label. I couldn''t put the book down and I finished it in a day in a half. I loved the way Larry told so many stories with such humor and detail that I felt I was transported back to that time. This book definitely left a lasting impact on me and I was saddened when it was over. One of the best reads I''ve come across in awhile. Do yourself a favor and read this awesome book.

Superbly written account of the Lookout story. Of course, it helps a lot if you were the suburban teenage fan in love with the bands involved at the time (which I was). But a fascinating story of DIY culture regardless. Larry Livermore''s writing style is a joy to read. Articulate when needed, level headed, genuine, and full of witty humor. Must read for any 90''s punk kid.

Incredible read for fans of the Bay Area punk movement. This book was so much fun to read. I recommend playing the bands/tunes Larry refers to in the background while reading to add to the experience. Fantastic job.

Essential reading for the history of Northern California punk rock. Honest and self-effacing, Livermore tells a story with many dimensions. It is very well written and smart.

Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2016
The guy is clearly a rocker not a writer, and at times has too much detail and at others not enough, but if you are at all interested in the history of Berkeley, punk, or just have some 90''s nostalgia to indulge, you''ll read it cover to cover like I did.
