I may have found out about Lester Bangs thanks to Philip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal of him in Almost Famous, or it may have been that he was referred to in an Uncut Magazine article on Lou Reed and Metal Machine Music. Whatever the route to this guy, I cannot adequately express how much his writing about music impacted on me - he has a passion and a genius that is generally lacking in most music writing; most writing to be honest.

Psychotic Reactions & Carburettor Dung is the bomb.
