JERRY STAHL So Ends My Hollywood Minute (2000)

So Ends My Hollywood Minute (2000)
Raw Tales Of The Junkie Life

Speaking of author Jerry Stahl… (see Mitchell Froom’s The Key Of Cool, HERE). So Ends My Hollywood Minute is an extremely rare CD issued in limited quantities (possibly in the hundreds) by L.A. lowlife chronicler, Jerry Stahl, best known for his books Perv, The Heroin Chronicles and Permanent Midnight – which was made into a movie starring Ben Stiller as the junkie/author writing for a TV sitcom (Alf). This CD is a collection of readings by Stahl, with loops and atmospherics by “The Getdown Syndrome,” which seems to include guitarist Jason Ross of Seven Mary Three. It’s funny, weird, dry and bizarre. Stahl’s only “solo” release (he has also worked with Lydia Lunch), this CD was issued by the same regional indie that put out Lunch’s rare 2CD set, Matrikamantra, which you can find in the archives (HERE). Not cheap over at Amazon, HERE.

    I will listen, thanks. I’ve read 1.75 of Mr. Stahl’s novels: All of I, Fatty–great, funny, humane, tragic–and three quarters of Pain Killers–excellent concept, unendurably tedious realization.
