Pretty hate machine

Coming soon from Sun-Times/Sound Opinions loudmouth Jim DeRogatis, it's Kill Your Idols: A New Generation of Rock Writers Reconsiders the Classics. DeRo edited the anthology, which finds nearly three dozen rock writers (some you've heard of, some you haven't) skewering sacred cows from Sgt. Pepper to OK Computer. Chitown scribes are heavily represented, though among local artists only the Pumpkins come in for a licking.
