"I'm always fascinated by the musical creativity of youth. Just recently I was spinning some vinyl in Lisbon . . . Punk rock? Well, I'm still working on that one."
- Rt. Hon. Jean Chretien, former Canadian Prime Minister (and Warren's former boss)
"Once a punk, always a punk! Kinsella makes it clear that, in its origins, punk became a really fucking fun way to take on the establishment's bullshit, and he shows why rebelliousness is still alive and kicking. It's a bloody good thing that old punks never die, otherwise they would never write any cool books."
-Joey Shithead Keithley, DOA
"Make no mistake, a book about Punk is not Punk Rock. But in this aggressive and energetic book Kinsella successfully tackles the complexities of what it is that makes this misfit youth culture so potentially empowering." -Craig O'Hara, author of The Philosophy of Punk"
"An insightful look into the world of music and politics when most people would rather hear about Ashlee Simpson and FOX TV."
-Jim Lindberg, Pennywise
"Readable, angry and trenchant, Fury's Hour falls somewhere between memoir and critical exposition, ranging incisively over the history of the genre."
""Discussing punk politics, the birth of the Sex Pistols and why anger is energy makes this an intelligent read for any rocker."
""He's very sharp and candid on the paradoxical appeal punk has always had with certain elements of the far right, and certain muddleheaded proponents of "anarchy." His belief in punk as a tool for social change reads like a tonic in an age of irony. He can convey the sheer heart-in-your-throat enthusiasm of the true fan with a verve that wouldn't shame his critic hero Lester Bangs."
-"The Gazette "(Montreal)
"His admiration for Joe Keithley, Joe Strummer, Today Vail and Joey Ramone is genuine, as is his enduring belief in the power of punk to change lives."
