IT ALL DIES ANYWAY: L.A., JABBERJAW AND THE END OF AN ERA. Bryan Ray Turcotte. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2015. Published in association with Kill Your Idols, Inc., Los Angeles. 272 pp. with 715 ills. (378 col.). 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9780847839964 In English.
Publisher's description: The untold history of the seminal cultural venue Jabberjaw -- the underground star of Los Angeles's historic indie scene of the 1990s. Billing itself as a "coffeehouse art gallery" when it opened in 1989, Jabberjaw quickly became not only the cornerstone of the Los Angeles post-punk scene but also a hub of the underground music scene nationwide. Bridging the gap between punk and indie, Jabberjaw was a bastion of counterculture that hosted shows for bands from the obscure (Hole, Unsane) to the legendary (Nirvana, Pearl Jam) in an environment that reflected a generation. In collaboration with the owners of the club, and with contributions from many of the musicians and artists who played and spent time there, It All Dies Anyway is a record of the venue's brief but influential existence. Designed and compiled by Bryan Ray Turcotte, the book is a visual feast, layering flyers and posters onto photographs, handmade record covers, and Polaroids of the gallery to paint an engrossing portrait not only of a venue but also of a forgotten time and place in music history.
