This fascinating entree into the world of the hipster contains thousands of examples of slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country and rock'n'roll lyrics from the 1920s to the 1960s. Whether you're a hipster, a B-girl, a weedhead, a moocher, a grifter, or a long gone daddy, this highly original reference should certainly hit the spot.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Max Décharné was born in England, and can still speak English when his business demands it.
During the past fifteen years he has flung various books and records at the public, and travelled to a variety of countries - firstly as a member of Gallon Drunk, then since 1995 as the singer with The Flaming Stars - spreading peace, goodwill and partial deafness among the youth of the world. He divides his drinking time between London and Berlin.
