This rowdy literary street brawl of an anthology is unarguably the first of its kind: anarchic, disorganized, unpredictable, and always entertaining. HATCHET JOB encompasses 20 years of the work of Gene Gregorits, former publisher of the underground film and music magazine, SEX & GUTS. Here we have interviews with or regarding iconic artists such as Hunter S. Thompson, Andrew W.K., The Sex Pistols, Abel Ferrara, Stuart Gordon, John Waters, The Kills, and Charles Bukowski. In his essays, Gregorits' takes on the life histories and work of John C. Holmes, Primal Scream, Mickey Rourke, James Ellroy, Johnny Thunders, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, and Stephen R. Bissette, among many others. Perversely, there is ample space given to Gregorits' romantic involvement with infamous underground icon Lydia Lunch, via private correspondence, photos, and never-before-seen excerpts from their doomed collaboration, "Johnny Behind The Deuce." The author's own personal recipes, film writing, and fan letters to various brand name companies are also included.
