Indie rock band Resonator also has the catchy nickname of Detroit 3 because the trio grew up together in the crumbling city.  Lead singer Miah Thade, drummer Ritchie Myer, and guitarist Finn Reese have known each other pretty much since kindergarten.  Their fathers worked on the assembly line at the car factory and the boys played every time their parents got together.

 

Sock in the Sun may be a sucky band name and in all honesty they probably won’t get far.  Hell, their big chance – opening for Resonator is blown when they all show up to their first concert stoned.  All stoned except for guitarist /lyricist Kevin Rene who arrived ahead of his band mates, stone cold sober.  Going back home to a ratty apartment Kevin doesn’t have a clue what he’ll do next when none other than Miah Thade knocks on his door and gives him the chance of a lifetime.  He’s the one they want.

 

Miah renames the star struck guitar player Evin and he joins Resonator.  The silliness and the squabbles between the guys are real.  At first he watches from the sidelines, but soon he’s as much a part of the band as the others.  Evin’s biggest problem is keeping his feelings and his hands to himself when Finn is near.  No one is aware of Evin’s sexuality and he plans to keep it that way, no matter how difficult it is.

 

As the tour progresses Resonator sounds better and better with the addition of Evin.  The band is achieving a level of success no one thought possible, especially their label who begin to pay more attention to them.  Unfortunately as their popularity grows problems begin to fester between the guys.  Miah goes off on his own one evening while Finn and Ritchie blow off steam in a way that has Evin’s head spinning.  Nothing is the same after that night except their talent on the stage.

 

Be prepared for an incredible ride in Ruin Porn.  Readers will be hooked with Evin’s story of Resonator’s meteoric rise and then later their emotional implosion.  The naïve musician has an eye opening journey which coincides with the emotional trip the others take.  Finn’s growth is just as important.  Sexual tension hovers in the background and explodes in this intense plotline.  It is an absolutely riveting storyline between the four main characters.  And a sentence on page 233 will bring a tear – please don’t cheat and read ahead.  Impossible to resist I Joyfully recommend Ruin Porn.  Yeah, got to say it…Ruin Porn seriously rocks!  Heart and soul and rock and roll.
