Greil Marcus is an eminent rock writer and cultural critic. He was the first rock reviewer for Rolling Stone Magazine, a writer for the famed populist music publication Creem, and a contributor at Artforum. He is a Promethean figure in the rock ā€˜nā€™ roll pantheon and has been bringing the burning core of the scene to the people since the very beginning. He is the author of numerous unmissable books on the subject, including Mystery Train and Ranters and Crowd Pleasers (now renamed In the Fascist Bathroom: Punk in Pop Music,1977-1992, in its current edition).

Jeremy Sigler is a poet, writer, sculptor and critic. He is a lecturer at the Yale MFA in Sculpture, and Publications and Editorial Manager at DIA. He has recently released a spoken word 12-inch record with Ken Seeno, published by The Kingsboro Press.
