This is the long awaited first official collection of writings by notorious performer/songwriter Michael D.Williams, the lyricist for New Orleans metal/punk legends EyehateGod, whose prolific recorded output has gained a mighty cult following since its inception in 1988. Mr. Williams has been long cited as "a decadent pioneer" and "a Hardcore blues prophet." The one true mouth of the disinfranchised underground scene. His fragmentary hallucenogenic outlook has been described as an illegitimate coupling of the downtrodden gutter-life beauty of Charles Bukowski, crossed with William Burroughs' cutup cerebral style. A voice of the voiceless, brutal realism metamorphised into uncompromising, startling images of gorgeous, wistful daily life. Long championed by dead end kids who KNOW, Williams is now prepared to take on whatever the mainstream literary world has to offer with this collection of nearly two hundred works.

A denizen of the interstate U.S. bus system, Michael D. Williams was born in High Point, North Carolina, pit stopping somewhere along the lines in New York City, and as of this writing, is currently living in New Orleans. Like a rat with nine lives; poverty, asthma, chemical abuse and run-ins with John Law led to fending off life’s battles with a shrug and a gut punch to the torso of society. Survival lessons were taught uneasily, breathing life and reality into words only a mother could hate. Michael has been the vocalist for many punk and rock groups, most successfully with the band EyeHateGod and is currently working on another project called Outlaw Order. Formerly the Associate editor of Metal Maniacs, he occasionally writes for a number of underground Rock and Roll publications.Review:
