A rollicking oral history of Madness's early years ... a goldmine of quirky anecdotes * Q Magazine *
[One of] the best books to buy music fans for Christmas * The Telegraph *
Brilliantly assembled by journalist Tom Doyle as an oral history featuring the voices of all the members ... tells you more about how a band becomes a band than any number of anecdotes about life in the studio * Financial Times *
As much as anything, the book is a social history of growing up on the edges of criminality * Financial Times *
An amazing book ... one of the best books about a band I have ever read. I've been raving about it to everyone I meet
