Limited five black and white colored vinyl LP set. Includes book and digital download. Peter Laughner was a singer/songwriter from Cleveland like no other. Before his untimely death in 1977, he played in numerous bands, most notably Rocket From The Tombs and Pere Ubu, and also as a solo performer. He wrote for a variety of weekly newspapers and Creem, where he was a contemporary of Lester Bangs. He famously told Jane Scott of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he wanted to do for Cleveland what ... Brian Wilson did for California and Lou Reed did for New York. In many ways, Peter did in fact put the Cleveland underground on the map.
