Art & Culture: Kids of the Black Hole by Dewar MacLeod

Today in January Magazine’s art & culture section, contributing editor Lincoln Cho reviews Kids of the Black Hole by Dewar MacLeod. Says Cho:
In his perfectly rendered look at the emergence of the punk movement in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and early 80s, Dewar MacLeod borrows the title of a song from the era and the area. The song “Kids of the Black Hole” was recorded by The Adolescents in 1980 and released on their debut album the following year. Both the reference and the title itself seems to perfectly capture the mood of MacLeod’s book while setting the stage for the story he’s telling in Kids of the Black Hole.
The full review is here.
