"All one-hundred-an-durty poundsa me dought I wuz invinsubble, and ya had ta think like dat back den cuz Noo Yawk City wuza different place, it wuza jungle."-- John Joseph Cro-Mags singer John Joseph is a continuing topic on the Deciblog and for good reason: Dude is a busy guy with a load of stories. After his memoir, The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon, was published, we subjected him to a Q+A in the March 2008 issue. He finished his second book, Meat Is for Pussies, and recently signed on to give walking tours of New York City's underbelly. But if you can't make it to the Big Apple to hear John tell it like it was, we've got the next best thing.
Mightier Than Sword records released the audio book of John's autobiography, and we're giving one copy away to a lucky reader. To get a taste of what's in store, the label set up a site that features audio clips. John's plain-spoken words are so thickly studded with a New York accent, the chilling tales he recounts are that much more evocative. Really good stuff.
