This book is no outbreak of nostalgia. I still listen to this music the way I started listening to it 40 years ago. It still sounds vital to me. The musicians have kept evolving. That’s why I’ve continued to interview them across the decades. The fact this Garage book stretches back to the mid-1980s and includes the original six issues of the fanzine is about the coolest thing I could ever have wished to happen. We wrote it for once reason – so it would lead people to listen to the music.”
