5.0 out of 5 stars FENDER CAR DISASTER, 16 Dec 2013
Inspired by a road trip in the Baja a few years ago and the sheer carnage witnessed on Mexican highways...

Todas Santos
Mexico 1
She jumped a red
Our day was done
Take a broken beetle
Put it up on a drum
Let all the people
See the dead and dumb

I laughed at life
Thought it was funny
You came along
And killed me honey
With sex and drags
And wreck and roll
You sent me early
Unto my hole - eternal soul

Chorus
I kept a date with a girl called death
Cos I believe she's the one I'm after
I'm bound for glory `cos she played my song
In a crash fender car-disaster… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars AMERICAN GANGSTER TIME, 27 July 2012
`The long drop off the short pier and the wrong man and the wrong woman in perfect misalliance' is how editors James Elroy and Otto Penzer describe the hapless collection of losers, dreamers and lowlifes who populate The Best American Noir of the Century - a compilation of short stories from many of the greatest crime writers from the 30's up to the present day.
All the usual suspects are correct and present: Chandler, Thompson, Highsmith and even Elroy himself with Since `I Don't Have You' (1988) on familiar ground with star system era Hollywood, pneumatic femme-fatals and Howard Hughes.
My personal favourite though is David Goodis' Professional Man (1953) - reminiscent of the… Read more
