The Rocklopedia fakebandica / T. Mike Childs ; illustrated by Jason Torchinsky.
New York : St. Martin's Griffin, c2004.
[MCL call number: 781.6603 C537r 2004; eight copies, no holds]

Have you ever wondered about lil' Opie Taylor's garage band The Sound Committee, wanted detail on Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers, or yearned to know more about The Sorels and Ellen Aim & the Attackers, the two fake bands featured in that great forgotten 80's flick Streets of Fire? You will be helped greatly by this book. It has all the deets on many a fake band, with photos.

Sadly, The Rocklopedia Fakebandica has no indexes or other supplemental finding aids, and while the author's website has similarly fascinating information, at the moment its search feature is bro-ken.
