Jon Fine - mild-mannered media analyst by day, axe-slinging paragon of post-whatever indie rock by night - shares tales from his more than twenty years of slugging it out in the trenches in an assortment of legendary outfits. From van breakdowns, canceling shows, and breaking knuckles in the dusty pre-Internet days of the early nineties, to destroying his guitar onstage in a fit of rage during a recent Bitch Magnet reunion show in Japan, Fine has seen and done most of it, if not all. Young whippersnappers are sure to learn a thing or three from this elder statesman of the Alternative Nation. And yes, "Alternative Nation" was the best we could come up with.
