"I learned 12 years ago at the age of 14 that if you don't have the guts to openly engage in rabid homosexuality or hardcore drug abuse, the next best way to really rip the ass outta your mother or father is to become a punk rocker." And so it begins where behind drunken, jaded words of despair shines that punk rock kid looking for something to believe in...something better than what most people seem to settle for. There are a few who see all these common things...these people, these places, eys, shoes, air, sky, and life in a way that is a perception perfect unto itself. Sometimes we're lucky enough to be around when they open their mouths. They bring life to the dream. BLOODCLOTS IN THE MAINSTREAM puts into words the reality that all of us who tour as a lifestyle feel: going from town to town collecting memories and taking stories with us from those we meet along the way. Santello's autobiographical adventures will take you all around America, yet they define a much greater journey - one that starts and ends inside.
