Reviews

"Wearing the right clothes, liking the right bands - this book summons up what it meant to be a teenager in the 70s." * Guardian *
"Charming coming of age tale ... An innocent's story, engagingly told." * Mojo *
"Brought back happy memories when bands and their fans were as one." -- Damian O'Neill, The Undertones
"[A] compelling and evocative memoir ...full of great memories of bands, gigs, clothes, girls and parties. It celebrates the vitality of youth and the spirt of the times." * Sabotage Times *
"[A] gripping account of the post-punk period ... one of the most essential accounts of this tumultuous yet highly productive period of British music ... Tony Fletcher is an extraordinary character ... This book will certainly bring back scores of vivid memories for those of us around Tony Fletcher's age, and is required reading for anyone who wishes to know more about the late 1970's music scene. More than that though, is the amazing human story and vivid characterisation that will have you hooked throughout as this period once again truly comes to life." * louderthanwar.com *
