Slow ride. Take it easy.


So now there's a King Dork Discography to go along with the King Dork Reading List.

It's a list of some of the records listened to, commented on, or alluded to by the narrator in the course of the book, along with little quotes from the text. (And I regret to say there wasn't room for Foghat on this one - they only give you 25 slots.)

The Jam, the Smiths, the Ramones, the Small Faces… all worthy bands, to be sure. But really, not one of them is fit to lick the glittery, platform boots of the mighty Slade. If "King Dork" gets just 10 people in the US to realize that Slade is one of the greatest rock bands of all time, the world will be a better place.

And I didn't think "Wig Wam Bam" was on "Destination Boulevard." But maybe this is a version of the album I'm not familiar with.

"Wig Wam Bam" isn't on Desolation Boulevard. I chose the "Wig Wam Bam" quote because I thought the quote was funny and it fit in the 200 character space. The album is listened to in the book, though.
