This Is Rebel Music: The Harvey Kubernik InnerView: Part One

Gary Pig Gold,, September 2004

"If there is a secret history of LA's music scene – the real dirt, the telling minutiae, the diseased spirit of the place – then it exists in the mind of Harvey Kubernik, the fanboy who cares so deeply about the sounds in the grooves and knows more than is healthy for one rock supernerd. If L.A. were Dante's Inferno, Harvey would be its Virgil: he's the greatest guide this Brit ever had in Babylon."
– Barney Hoskyns, author of Waiting For The Sun: Strange Days, Weird Scenes, and the Sound of Los Angeles
