A big fat book crammed with photos and memories centering on the unique Liverpool music club Eric's - from the people who worked there, hung out, formed bands and played there, and MORE! Liverpool Stadium, The Cavern, Probe Records, Open Eye, The Zoo, The Jung Festival, Ken Campbell's Liverpool Theatre of Science Fiction, The Everyman, The Liverpool School of Music, Language, Dream & Pun... Every band you can think of played Eric's. It was known as a PUNK club - Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Buzzcocks, Joy Division, The Fall, The Damned, The Clash... but Roger Eagle also booked blues and jazz and reggae artists... and comedy, theatre, and... anything he wanted!! The club nurtured local bands such as Big In Japan, Wah! Heat, Teardrop Explodes, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Pete Burns played his first ever gig there in The Mystery Girls. Pre-Eric's the big local bands were Deaf School, and Supercharge - and they also played Eric's. The book looks at the Liverpool scene before Roger Eagle and Ken Testi set up Eric's, and what people went on to do next... it is packed with tons of interesting stuff that you will not read about anywhere else.
