    Art that Kills is a document, composed of interviews, about the furthest extremes of culture and subculture that existed in the United States from the '80s on up, starting with G.G. Allin and ending, I believe, with avant-garde/porn director Nick Zedd. In between you have just about everything from people who obeyed no rules, who left no sacred cow upturned, and who wanted either to destroy culture as a whole or go beyond it. Included are two people who were prosecuted for obscenity, Peter Sotos Art that Kills is a document, composed of interviews, about the furthest extremes of culture and subculture that existed in the United States from the '80s on up, starting with G.G. Allin and ending, I believe, with avant-garde/porn director Nick Zedd. In between you have just about everything from people who obeyed no rules, who left no sacred cow upturned, and who wanted either to destroy culture as a whole or go beyond it. Included are two people who were prosecuted for obscenity, Peter Sotos and Mike Diana, the first one a person who put out a 'zine praising serial killers and mass murder, the second one being the cartoonist who created "Boiled Angel", which featured comic rendering of violent and obscene acts of a startling variety, on top of being funny and entertaining. The scene that the book represents is pretty much that associated with Feral House, Adam Parfrey being one of the people interviewed, so if you want to know the flavor of what's featured you should google them and go their website. Lots of Anton LaVey-esque stuff. The book is pretty much one of the most extreme collections of misanthropic writings, writings hostile to humanity in general, that I've seen, and so is enjoyable, although I wouldn't endorse some of the conclusions some of the writers come to. A good complement to this book is ".45 Dangerous Minds: the Seconds interviews", which is by some of the same people but gives a different spectrum of similar territory. If you "Live to be Hated" this is a book for you.

    One of all time favorite books! Interviews and coverage of Charles Manson, Boyd Rice, William S. Burroughs, Lydia Lunch, Marilyn Manson, Robert Williams, Michael Moynihan, GG Allen, and many many others!

    A wide-ranging compendium of interviews with a variety of musicians, artists, zinesters, and other travelers within the depths of the underground. The Church of Satan is pretty heavily represented with Thomas Thorn, Stanton LaVey, Peter Gilmore, and more. Photography (there’s a lot of stuff from Fred Berger of Propaganda) and art reproductions liven up the book quite a bit.

One thought that struck me after reading it is that whenever someone starts talking about might makes right and survival of the fittest, it doesn’t matter if they’re scrawny, living on cheap booze and chicken McNuggets, have never even gone camping, and maybe had a dozen people show up to their last show, they will always consider themselves to be an ubermensch.
