A campus dumpster filled with rank fraternity refuse. The religion classroom at a Catholic grade school. An internet community of Bob Dylan idolaters. A decaying wooden porch on a suburban street corner. What do all these locations have in common? They’re all stops on Kevin Davis’s journey through the vast abyss of music appreciation, documented in his first full-length collection of essays, Mystery Pill. Following the author’s young self as he strikes up an illicit bargain with a record store clerk, buys way more Phish CD’s than he ever cared to own, and cheats an all-night fast food chain out of an order of cheese fries, Mystery Pill unpacks the stigmas of rock n’ roll culture by examining it through the lens of one if its key demographics (the sheltered suburban youth), proving once and for all that no dumpster is too deep for a young rock fan to plunder, as long as beneath its foul-smelling contents awaits the promise of rock n’ roll enlightenment.
