As many reviewers have noted, Kim Fowley is one of the most compelling characters in Queens of Noise. He’s the only one who gets his own chapter, and that just barely scratches the surface of his strange life story. Kim himself is spreading his memoirs out over three books. La Luz De Jesus gallery is celebrating the launch of the first volume, Lord of Garbage, October 5 at 7 p.m. Kim spent the summer bedridden from bladder cancer surgery; it’s great to see that he’s back on his feet, and I know for a fact illness hasn’t slowed or mellowed him one bit. I’m sure the Legendary Hustler will provide an entertaining evening.
