Overview

Fuzz One is the staggering, outrageous, true story of a raucous and wholly unsupervised childhood in the Bronx of the 1970s. Through Vincent Fedorchak's hilarious deadpan narration of a wild existence wrought with adolescent braggadocio, we are taken on a rough journey through a deteriorating Bronx jungle-wonderland where property value was plummeting and kids ruled the streets. Whether executing a bizarre graffiti mission in another borough with all the insanity of a special ops soldier, fearlessly tracking down Satan-worshippers camped out in the old castles in Van Cortlandt Park, or being the first white boy inducted into the infamous Ebony Dukes street gang, Fedorchak never flinches. Filled with hundreds of never-before-published photos of graffiti art and Bronx cityscapes, as well as first-hand accounts of the exploits of legendary graffiti artists such as DONDI, BLADE, COMET, NOC 167, BOOTS 119, and others, Fuzz One is a guided tour of a heretofore uncharted Bronx underworld. This epic tale of youth gone awry fully captures an important era of cultural upheaval in New York City's history. It is set apart from other memoirs via the inclusion of more than 300 images, nearly all in color, that give the volume strong historical, anthropological and cultural appeal.

Don't let the haters steer you wrong, this book is super funny and full of rare flicks. The LORD COMET train that opens the book is worth the price of admission alone, not to mention the index of Rusto and Red Devil colors in the back. This is way better than that Dondi book. If you like old school graf photos and great stories you won't go wrong with this book.

As an art teacher and former graffiti artist I expected a lot of ego and bragging in the book.It was troubling to make sense of most of the content. Can only recommend the book to the most diehard writer.

Nice to see old flics of trains. Book lacks a lot of truth. Been there and loved every minute of the game. The author gets yoked out every day of his young life. Hard 2 believe? Fab 5 Forever

I read the book and I have to say that I've enjoyed all the variety of stories and the tons of pictures that the book had to offer. As I read along, It felt as if I were in the adventure. There were sad stories, love Stories, funny stories...etc. I highly recommend this book. And, especially to anyone that is old school and into graffiti - you will take a trip down memory lane for sure. The opening page before the Introduction seemed almost movie-like, with the bridge and lake scenery. I truly loved the concept.
