With diverse musical influences ranging from The Mahavishnu Orchestra to Black Sabbath, the DayGlo Abortions have developed a unique and ferocious sound that few have successfully imitated. Legends to some, degenerate drug addicts to others, the DayGlo Abortions remain one of the most controversial yet influential punk groups ever. Read the book that makes The Dirt look like The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.
The DayGlo Abortions are perhaps the most misunderstood and maligned punk groups ever to exist. To this day, critics and naysayers are unable to see past the corrosive lyrics and explicit imagery to the true meaning beneath. Readers of this book, however, may be shocked to learn that below the nasty exterior and foul language, the DayGlo Abortions are much more concerned about the fate of humankind than anyone could have imagined. Defenders of the underdog and crusaders against injustice, the legendary band from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada have identified greed as being the single largest problem facing this world today. Survivors of a landmark obscenity trial, endless abuse from the musical press, and nonstop personal debauchery, the DayGlo Abortions remain undaunted after more than thirty years as the toughest, most outrageous punk group of all time.
About the author
Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been meaningless. His first published novel, Punk Rules OK (Burn Books, 2002) went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the book game. With help from his girlfriend who worked at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. Gofuckyerself Press then expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and Australian Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. Now, more than twenty titles and twelve years later, GFY Press remains undaunted.
