Throghout the 1920s to the '60s, numerous legendary entertainers drew thousands of people to such memorable venues as the Brant Inn in Burlington, Dunn's Pavilion in Bala, The Palais Royale in Toronto, the Stork Club at Port Stanley, to the Club Commodore in Belleville and the Top Hat Pavilion in Noth Bay - and the hundreds of the other popular dance venues right across Ontario.

Disco's Out.-- Murder's In!: The True Story of Frank the Shank and L.A.'s Deadliest Punk Rock Gang

By Mattioli, Heath; Spacone, David

Large soft cover (roughly) 9" by 6" (inches) flat uncreased spine, square true clean & tight, x, 224 pages with b & w photos and artwork through-out, Near Fine condition. "The result is an arresting first-person narrative that begins with Frank's first punk show (X at the Whisky a Go-Go), but quickly becomes more about beat-downs & murders than a love of punk music. Seminal bands such as The Germs, The Adolescents, and T.S.O.L. appear, but only to soundtrack La Mirada Punks brutal rampages, or worse, get bullied & bruised by the gang. In a way, the book feels like a lost chapter in the already-storied history of LA gangs that have been examined ever since the Prohibition era." Check out the scans. . 1st Edition 1st Printing.
