The Triangle

By J. Buck Williams

The Inside Story of the World’s First Terrorist Rock and Roll Band.

From inside a maximum-security prison comes this exclusive memoir from the bandleader who forever changed rock and roll—and the world.

The Triangle started as just another bar band from Seattle. But as the country exploded with righteous rage, they found themselves with a headlining gig at the revolution. From their jagged first tour, through their trials with a zombifying psychotropic drug and the destruction of a national treasure that sealed their infamy, The Triangle stayed one step ahead of the law . . . until one fateful encounter with luck and love taught them the true meaning of rock and roll.

Praise for The Triangle

“J. Buck Williams must have been at every band practice I ever attended because he’s got it all down; the musician pecking order, the decrepit rehearsal space, and the constant bickering. If you want to know what it is really like to be in a rock and roll band, read The Triangle. Williams saves you the trouble of having to learn an instrument or changing your entire wardrobe to all black.“

—Patrick O’Neil author of Gun, Needle, Spoon, and former road manager for Dead Kennedys, Flipper, and Subhumans

“The Triangle has everything you wish your band had—chops, fans and an attitude to go with it. They do what you always wanted to do (except for the being wanted by the FBI part).”

—Scott Colburn, producer, Sun City Girls, Arcade Fire,and Animal Collective

“If J. Buck Williams writes songs like he writes books, then his inclusion in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame is a foregone conclusion. The Triangle is a riff-heavy, rockin’ good time.”

—Chris Walter, SNFU: What No One Else Wanted to Say
