Through interstitial commentary, John Doe "narrates" this journey through the land of film noir sunshine, Hollywood back alleys, and suburban sprawl—the place where he met his artistic counterparts Exene, DJ Bonebrake, and Billy Zoom—and formed X, the band that became synonymous with, and in many ways defined, L.

Under the Big Black Sun shares stories of friendship and love, ambition and feuds, grandiose dreams and cultural rage, all combined with the tattered, glossy sheen of pop culture weirdness that epitomized the operations of Hollywood's underbelly.

Readers will travel to the clubs that defined the scene, as well as to the street corners, empty lots, apartment complexes, and squats that served as de facto salons for the musicians, artists, and fringe players that hashed out what would become punk rock in Los Angeles. Used with permission. Big Black Sun is a glorious record. Opener "The Hungry Wolf" packs a threatening riff to complement the sexually aggressive lyrics.

Punk rock eventually turned into a rejection of all music, especially when it morphed into hardcore, but X hailed from the original line of punks. That they could actually play meant they were one of the few bands to actually embody a rock reboot. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip.

May 15, Jim rated it really liked it Shelves: the-westmusic-writing As a superfan of L. It's not a memoir, nor is it an oral history, and it's kind of a stretch to call (I Cant Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding - The Best Of Otis Redding an anthology.

It's a loose collection of essays that covers, more or less, the same ground as Forming: The Early Days of L. That's fine. The voices collected here all add interesting insights to a story that's As a superfan of L.

The voices collected here all add interesting insights to a story that's been told many times before despite co-author Tom DeSavia's claims that LA punk rock is underdocumented. Interspersed between these pieces are shorter remembrances by John Doe and DeSavia that add little to the collection.

    Feb 27,  · By this time, X had mastered a large palette of sounds, and ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek's production does X the most justice here. Tipping the scales in "Sun"'s favor are the bonus tracks: their wonderful cover of "Breathless" and a stunning instrumental of "Because I Do /5(51).
