God, Forgive These Bastards Book + LP

by Rob Morton

Portland’s Taxpayers are one of the most infectious, young punk bands in America. Their live shows (sometimes in laundromats) are displays of manic energy complete with inflatable toys and tornado dances. So dedicated to not taking things too seriously, the band even puts on a festival every year called The Gathering of the Goof Punx. 

This record/book companion set profiles the recently deceased Henry Turner, a pitcher for the Georgia Tech baseball team in the 1970?s who threw his arm out before his chance to play in the big leagues and lived out his life on the streets of Portland, giving away bus passes.
