A collection of ten punk rock fairy-tales about artists and misfits trying to make noise and live forever in the unforgiving landscape of the Rio Grande Valley.

Death to the Bullshit Artists of South Texas is a psychedelic romp through the Rio Grande Valley music scene. This collection of 10 punk rock fairy-tales offers a prismatic view of a subculture so rich that if it knew its own worth, it just might revolt against itself. This is the book you wish you had as a teenager, headphones on, waiting at a bus stop for a ride to the record store.

The first bit of rock and roll Baldemar Baca ever heard was under a cold October night at the Mallory migrant worker barracks in Agatha, Illinois, from a little AM radio that belonged to his uncle. Baldemar slept in a boxy room shared with his mother, father, younger brother Betito, and three-year-old-sister, Lucy. He held the little radio close to his ear under the covers, with the pillow over his head so nobody would wake and tell him to shut that thing off and go to sleep.”from Death to the Bullshit Artists of South Texas
