And if you want to know more about the Los Angeles scene, there is a similar book called We've Got the Neutron Bomb. I think Please Kill Me is a better book, though.

EDIT: I really enjoy oral history books and subcultures, so if anyone has any recommendations, I'd greatly appreciate them!

I am the same way, I don't really have a favorite album. Lately I've been getting pretty into experimental german stuff from the 70s (especially Neu, CAN, Popol Vuh, and Cluster), Sonic Youth's SYR series, and Sun Ra.

That said, three albums that made a big impact on my life are the first Meat Puppets album, Gluey Porch Treatments by Melvins, and Kleenex/LiLiPut.

Rembrandt Pussyhorse by Butthole Surfers deserves an honorable mention, especially if the songs from the Cream Corn from the Socket of Davis songs are included.

I am not really into making lists and any conversation I have about my "favorite" albums tends to get pretty incoherent pretty fucking fast.
