After taking their do-it-yourself regimen to thenightclubs of Boston, New York, and London, the duo now have theirown book, Punk Rock Aerobics, filled with dozens ofeasy-to-follow exercise steps (including the "Sid-Up"and the "Teenage Kick"), and instructional interviewswith such able-bodied punks as Mike Watt and Thurston Moore.
