Bill Sassenberger
Toxic Shock Records: Assassin of Mediocrity
$ 20.00

The story of a record store and label that started in the early days of punk, when punk record shops didn't exist, and made it work for 34 years. It's also a memoir of the founders, Bill Sassenberger and Julianna Towns, and their lives in loud music.

From the publisher: "Toxic Shock is a full color, 200-page book that chronicles the history of the punk record store/mail order enterprise and groundbreaking record label Toxic Shock from its origins in 1980 in the grimy suburbs of Pomona, CA to its demise in Tucson, AZ in 2014. Loaded with many rare photos and gig flyers, and through a combination of a very personal biography, oral history and extensive imagery, the book covers the many twists and turns that made Toxic Shock an often misunderstood punk rock institution."

200 pages, trade paperback, full color.
