9780099531876: Death of an Unsigned Band

Being an unsigned band isn't a situation - it's a mental illness. Few people realise they're suffering from this affliction. Russell Groom knows, and he wants to change things fast. But Russell doesn't fit the traditional rock-star mould, and his woefully unexceptional band are headed nowhere, inhabiting a world of cramped and sweaty rehearsal rooms, crap day jobs, empty gigs and interminable trips down the A303 to dodgy festival slots in Wiltshire. Enter Josh - the enigmatic and arrogant son of a successful record producer - with an offer it's impossible to refuse...

Tim Thornton's new novel is a hilarious fly-on-the-wall trip round the outskirts of the music industry, with a valuable lesson: unsigned bands never become signed bands. They have to die first.

Review:

"So real you can smell the sound man, see the promoter sneaking out without paying you and hear JJ72... a truly compelling read" ( Word)

"Hilariously charts the dismal lows of a struggling band" (Henry Sutton Daily Mirror)

"Fun, shambling...well-told" ( Big Issue)

"Really funny... Writing about bands could slip into pompous theorising, but this does what all good books should do, which is concentrate on the personalities" (Alexandra Heminsley 6Music)

"a funny and touching read about a struggling rock band" ( Stylist)

Book Description:
