  Welcome to the Biography Project. This reference tool is an ongoing effort to catalog and document the contributions of authors, artists, scientists, film makers and other culturally influential individuals on underground culture in its various forms. This is direct response to the unfortunate *lack* of accurate and comprehensive information on the net regarding 'popsubculture'. It is a totally volunteer effort, in fact, it is done in my ever shrinking spare time.

  Parts of this site originally appeared (in a different form) on the now defunct There it was part of what was called the SubCulture Project. My friend Bonesy Jones and I contributed the majority of the biographies that appeared there. When the site closed, we rescued the biographies that were online, not only because they represented literally hundreds of hours of research, HTML coding, et cetera, but because people found them useful, interesting, and in some cases, the only online source of information on the subject.

  I hope that you find The Biography Project useful, interesting, and now in its fifth redesign, easy-to-use.

  As an added service, this site, in association with and in association with, allows you to make purchases of books and other products mentioned in the site directly from the Amazon websites.

NOTE: The Biography Project does not receive funding from any other source other than the banner adverts, commissions generated from the sales of merchandise listed on the site and voluntary donations made through the honor system. Please help us continue to maintain and expand the Biography Project by making your purchases through our links.
