About the Author

Jake Brennan is a Boston based musician who launched, Disgraceland, "a rock 'n' roll true crime podcast" in February 2018 to great acclaim. Jake grew up in music. He saw the Ramones play live when he was ten years old and began recording and touring at a young age, first with his band Cast Iron Hike and then with his bands the Confidence Men and Bodega Girls. His songs have been featured in film and television, however Jake thinks his coolest musical accomplishment was opening for Fugazi "back in the day." He lives in North Boston with his wife and two sons.

Reviews

"Through his gritty and powerful stories, Brennan breathes new life into the music and musicians we've known all our lives."--Aaron Mahnke, author and creator of Lore
"Jake Brennan is writing from a crossroads- the junction of music and crime. One road leads to the Elysian Fields, the other, to the Underworld. Some of these magicians have been down both."--T Bone Burnett, Oscar and Grammy winning musician and producer
"Mix the true crime mythology of rock 'n' roll with a dash of transgressive fiction, then add 10 cc of adrenaline and twice that in anabolic steroids. Employing due caution, enter Jake Brennan's brain as translated in Disgraceland to observe the dark results--Elvis locked in unholy union with the parasitic Colonel Tom Parker, why Jerry Lee Lewis was called the Killer, Altamont. Axl Rose. Chuck Berry. And, of course, the truly twisted Phil Spector. It all works brilliantly because Jake genuinely loves rock 'n' roll just as much as he enjoys indulging his imagination and wickedly stylish sense of humor."--Dennis McNally, author of A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead
"Following on from the addictive podcast, this book is an absolute treasure trove of fascinating fun facts, salacious gossip, hilarious anecdotes and sober reflections on the darker corners of human behavior and art. I devoured it, and it left me wanting more."
-- Frank Turner, Singer-songwriter and musician


"This gossipy account is sure to fascinate music fans and true crime lovers."--Publisher's Weekly
"This book is a real page turner."--Forbes
