Key Sales Points

The first book on The Brian Jonestown Massacre, one of the most influential contemporary rock acts, based on hundreds of new interviews with individuals connected to the band over their nearly thirty-year history.

Released to coincide with the fifteenth anniversary of Ondi Timoner’s documentary Dig!, which made the band famous after winning the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2004.

Includes contributions from members of the band and Timoner, plus The Dandy Warhols, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Guided By Voices, and The Warlocks, as well as cameo appearances by Oasis, Ride, The White Stripes, Pete Kember, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, and more, further broadening the book’s appeal across various rock’n’roll subcultures.

Keep Music Evil also tells the stories of the creation of every album the band have released during their three-decade career, offering insight in Anton and his collaborators’ working methods, and provides an in-depth look at the making of Dig!, giving deeper context to the events as portrayed, correcting misinformation, and deconstructing the film as a whole. It also features rare, candid, and never-before-seen photographs of the band from throughout their career.
