Dead Moon - [DAMAGED COVER] Off the Grid [IMPORT] SOFT COVER - New book
DAMAGED COVER: KNIFE SLICE DOWN THE MIDDLE! (BOX CUTTER INFRACTION). Probably sliced by Toody herself so marked up cuz that's cool! Well, actually marked down, but still cool. (The slice is deeper than it looks in the photos, perhaps goes clear through the cover or close to that at the deepest point.)

"Dead Moon was a lo-fi garage / rock 'n' roll band from Portland, Oregon from 1987 to 2006. The band achieved a cult status shrouded in myth and legend. She cultivated her DIY ethos and always avoided falling into the traps of the conventional music industry. She produced her records herself and ran her own music business and label of the same name, Tombstone Music. Their story is unique in the halls of rock music - a band that never betrayed their ideals, never gave up, and left an artistic and community legacy that is unparalleled to this day. In interview format, the book tells the Dead Moon saga in the band's own words. It contains a fully illustrated discography, song lyrics and countless photos, flyers, posters and letters from the archives of Fred and Toody Cole."
The first two editions sold out quickly, published in the USA in 2018 under the title "DEAD MOON - The Book" are now trading at high prices - so we are now making the pure book version available at a lower price. The book traces the history of the band from Portland, Oregon in words and pictures. With this third edition, there is now a revised, updated and expanded edition by 20 pages. The previously extensive image section was supplemented by previously unpublished historical photos, posters and flyers as well as an interview with Hans Kesteloo especially for this issue. Discography and gig list have been revised and completed.
