by Eric Laster
Recording punk rock allows me to indulge in overall attitude instead of details. When I write and record punk, I embrace messiness—spewing emotions without painstaking forethought. And this might sound weird, but for me it’s also a celebration of anger. Punk allows me a cathartic release from the strictures of the everyday and acts as a steam valve through which I vent some of the worst aspects of my personality (though I do exaggerate and poke fun of this over-the-top version of myself). Curiously, when I “sing” punk I become a character, which in the end is not unlike being a novelist or short story writer.
You can check out some of Eric’s music on Bandcamp.
When Curtis Brooks starts receiving phone calls from his older brother Wilt, who’s been dead a week, he’s sure it’s to help him find evidence that will lead to a murderer’s arrest. But Wilt claims he wasn’t murdered; his calling, meant to help him adjust, is standard protocol for newly deceased at the Aftermart—a kind of inescapable, ever-expanding Walmart filled with discontinued products.
Wilt’s death ruled a homicide, Curtis embarks on a dangerous plan to find the killer, which soon has him scheming against a billionaire and floundering toward love with his brother’s ex-girlfriend Suzy, all while struggling through high school and his single mom’s poor choices.
Why does Wilt help Curtis win over Suzy, even as he organizes a rebellion at the Aftermart? Who’d wanted him dead? Curtis risks his life to answer these questions, in the process forging a bond with his brother unlike any they’ve ever had.
