About Guilty of Everything

1978: a non–stop carnival of debauchery begins as the first shock of punk hits Vancouver, with John Armstrong at the centre of it all. As Buck Cherry, lead singer/guitarist for the Modernettes, Armstrong tours us pell–mell through his misspent youth when he met and made music with I Braineater, Joey Shithead, Dimwit, Chuck Biscuits, Mary Jo Kopechne, Art Bergmann and other punk luminaries. He resurrects Vancouver’s punk glory scene with a drug–addled, booze–soaked account with Los Popularos, DOA, the Subhumans, and the Modernettes.

Armstrong's account of his years as a reporter, Wages, is also published by New Star Books.

Guilty of Everything is number 8 in the Transmontanus series.
