At its heart, this is Jason Murray's memoir, but it will remind readers of the passion and self-invention that are the best parts of being young. (Toronto Star (Toronto, ON) 2017-08-19)
In this narrative history and memoir, journalist, musician, and Monctonian Jason Murray follows the rise of the band that put the Maritimes on the map.
Eric's Trip was a band defined as much by its DIY ethos as its low-fi, discordant music. The four-piece formed in an early-'90s Moncton basement and in a few short years, went from recording themselves on a four-track and selling cassettes at local record stores to signing on Seattle's Sub Pop records, opening for Sonic Youth, and touring internationally.
Twenty years after the band's breakup (1996), A Distorted Revolution is the ultimate nostalgia trip. Through personal recollections, interviews with band members and others integral to the early 90s scene, this highly anticipated book offers a rare glimpse inside the band's formation, success, and ultimate unravelling. Includes over 20 images.
