"Herein the true history of music...the heroes and zeroes of the modern music landscape mutated into their true form."--Rough Trade

Collected together for the first time, these Trip or Squeek strips offer acerbic, lysergic and razor sharp observations on music, art and life. Featuring extensive notes, a discography and never-before-seen preparatory sketches by Savage Pencil, and an illustrated foreword by artist Gary Panter.

Savage Pencil's Trip or Squeek strips have been appearing in music magazine The Wire since 2002. Trip or Squeek continues a tradition of satirical illustration dating back to the 18th century, albeit one that has been dosed up via the '60s freak scene, Japanese monster movies and the weird fiction of HP Lovecraft.

Musical guest stars appearing in the book include: Steve Reich, Stockhausen, Moondog, Mark E Smith, Sonic Youth, Robert Wyatt, Suicide, Kraftwerk, Crass, Lou Reed, Jandek, Throbbing Gristle, Sleep and many more.

Containing over 100 comic strips, collected together for the first time, the book features extensive notes, a discography and never-before-seen preparatory sketches by Savage Pencil, and an illustrated foreword by artist Gary Panter.
