9780091936525: Just For One Day: Adventures in Britpop

Note to customers: This book is also available under the title "Different for Girls: A girl's own true-life adventures in pop".

Just For One Day takes you on Louise Wener’s musical odyssey from awkward 80s suburban pop geek to 90s jet-set Britpop goddess. Of course, once she’s living the dream at the height of Britpop’s glory, things aren’t quite how they appeared from the other side.

With her band Sleeper, Louise goes from doing gigs in toilets to gigs in stadiums, and on to the big interviews, constant touring and endless excess via Top of the Pops.

These are the hilarious adventures of a girl’s journey through Britpop, from the embarrassments of growing up to trying to remember what on earth it was you really wanted while eating Twiglets backstage and enviously eyeing up Damon Albarn’s plate of foreign cheeses.

Review:

"This book is absolutely wonderful - I just read four passages out loud to the Word staff - to actual applause!" (Mark Ellen The Word)

"Wise, funny and loving - a brilliant memoir about Britpop and possibly the best rock biography since Nik Cohn's AwopBopAlooBop-AlopBamBoom" ( Tony Parsons)

"Funny, readable and filled with proper gossip. Most importantly, it's a perceptive and tenacious look at what it was really like to be a girl among the blokes in that era" (Alexandra Heminsley The New Review, Independent on Sunday)

"Wener charts the story of her rise from suburban schoolgirl to 1990s pin-up with Indie group Sleeper. Her tone is warm, funny and self-deprecating - and she's not afraid to prick a few egos along the way" ( Daily Mirror)

"An amusing insight into the banality of band life, and a cautionary tale about the cost of getting what you always wanted" ( The Quietus)

Book Description:

The former Sleeper singer's tales of making it big in Britpop
