About this title


Maconie's memoir recounts a life lived for music from his early confessions as a pubescent prog rocker; a boyish dalliance with northern soul, the radical affects of punk on his politics and trouser dimensions; falling in love with music press and teen mags (for when only David Essex's favourite colour will do); playing in a series of shockingly named crap bands and failing to impress girls with his encyclopaedic pop trivia; writing for the NME by accident and his initiation into the big bad world of the music business: meeting his idols, living the sex, drugs and rock'n'roll lifestyle and the comically tawdry truth behind all the glitz. An all-star cast including fun with Lemmy, frolics with Morrissey, four minutes with MC Hammer, four days in a van with Napalm Death and stealing the Mayor of Frankfurt's dinner with Simple Minds. Not to mention answering some of the key questions of pop such as: Why does Gregory Issacs only come on stage after the last bus has gone?


&quot;From council estate to Radio 2, Stuart Maconie has lived the perfect pop fan's life...effortlessly articulate&quot; -- <i><i>The Times</i></i><br /><br />&quot;Maconie makes a jovial, self-deprecating narrator. Sharp and funny&quot; -- <i><i>The Guardian</i></i><br /><br />`Stuart Maconie is the best thing to come out of Wigan since the A58 to Bolton&#x2019; -- <i>Peter Kay</i>
