    WARNING There is a LOT of text squeezed into these 600 pages I think it readslike 800 pages.I ve read about Cometbus for years in books and other zines but I ve never actually opened an issue of the mag It was nice to see what all the hype has been about, but I can t help feeling like this omnibus is only a fuzzy reflection of what it was like to actually read the zines Oh well, I missed out on the real thing That doesn t mean this isn t a delightful read.It s really neat to see how t WARNING There is a LOT of text squeezed into these 600 pages I think it readslike 800 pages.I ve read about Cometbus for years in books and other zines but I ve never actually opened an issue of the mag It was nice to see what all the hype has been about, but I can t help feeling like this omnibus is only a fuzzy reflection of what it was like to actually read the zines Oh well, I missed out on the real thing That doesn t mean this isn t a delightful read.It s really neat to see how the bits of East Bay punk history I ve gathered over the years correspond with the stories he was telling in those times Also very interesting to see the rise of East Bay punk into the mainstream from the perspective of an anti racket Yohannanist who was actually friends with all those people who got famous He deliberately avoided any form of fame or even a comfortable living for himself The irony is that Aaron has now achieved legendary status for doing a hand made zine for 20 frickin years Hil...

    Here Aaron Cometbus attempts to condense 20 years of his self published zine into one mammoth volume, called Despite Everything Though Cometbus was not easy to find where I grew up, I did get my hands on a few issues in the late nineties At that time, Aaron s writing really spoke to me about ways to live outside of the usual paths of existence and how life could be a sort of never ending series of adventures, even if you re stuck in a small town with no money So, these many years later, I fin Here Aaron Cometbus attempts to condense 20 years of his self published zine into one mammoth volume, called Despite Everything Though Cometbus was not easy to find where I grew up, I did get my hands on a few issues in the late nineties At that time, Aaron s writing really spoke to me about ways to live outside of the usual paths of existence and how life could be a sort of never ending series of adventures, even if you re stuck in a small town with no money So, these many years later, I finally got around to reading this compendium of his work, and it certainly was a major nostalgia trip for me Some of the writing does not hold up as well as I d hoped, and some of the contributers don t seem to have much to say But I can still feel the devotion that went into each h...

    It may seem strange, especially for those who didn t grow up fortifying themselves with punk rock, but Aaron Cometbus is one of my favorite writers of all time The material he covers the travelling, the heartbreak, the carefree verve, the quasi destitution has all been done before, but Cometbus approaches it with a matter of factness and a grim levity that prevents his work from coming off like some pretentious nth generation On The Road knockoff One of the best arguments for DIY culture It may seem strange, especially for those who didn t grow up fortifying themselves with punk rock, but Aaron Cometbus is one of my favorite writers of all time The material he covers the travelling, the heartbreak, the carefree verve, the quasi destitution ha...

    A collection of the first 20 years of Aaron Cometbus s extraordinary zine Imitated by throngs of per zine geeks for the last two decades, this is the original and still the best of the bunch Of course Aaron has been in a bunch of bands through the years Crimpshrine, Pinhead Gunpowder, etc , but the zine rarely focuses on punk music so much as the backdrop of the punk scene itself The artwork and layouts are great, the writing is great, the occasional contributors are occasionally gre A collection of the first 20 years of Aaron Cometbus ...

    Am I really old enough to remember seeing Aaron s band at 924 Gilman while I was still in high school Apparently, I am The band was so so but the zine was and is a must read for aging bay area punks.
