About me:I'm Tripp and I've played bass in the punk band The Unseen for the past 15 years or so. My life as a musician has been the most money draining, eye opening, and heart wrenching, yet all around most exciting existence one could imagine. And 'cause life in our band has had far more up’s and downs than most people’s experiences I recently took the time to write a book about our many adventures as a band: all our triumphs and failures, good times and near death experiences are all recounted in its pages. If stories about a hard working band living hand to mouth and seeing the world all while trying in vain to avoid run ins with the police, thugs, and bankruptcy interests you then you’ll want to buy this book from interpunk.com Plus for you non readers there is an audio version featuring me reading the whole damn thing. That’s right, illiterates rejoice 'cause you can get a copy of So This Is Readin’? as a ‘book on CD’, 4 disc collection! Look out Henry Rollins ‘cause there’s a new self obsessed, tattooed fella on the spoken word scene.
“You’ve read ‘GET IN THE VAN’ by Henry Rollins, well now its time to get out of that van, and push it up hill to the closest gas station ‘cause you’ve blown the transmission… again. That’s what “So This Is Readin?” is all about, a REAL band working REAL hard. The book reads like Unseen’s music; brutally honest, fast paced, and in your face. But unlike so much punk music of the day Tripp’s words never seem to loose sight of the importance of keeping your sense of humor, even in the face of adversity. The band’s bassist, a self proclaimed master of “illiterature” (writing for those who think they don’t like to read), relives every detail of the band’s sorted history, and through his writing manages to capture all the glory and failure, fun and heart break that accompanies life in a struggling punk band. “So This Is Readin’?” will show you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about how some independent bands live on the road, all without subjecting yourself to any of the starving, brushes with death, or foul aromas that are a daily part of life on tour. You’ve been warned…"
