AN UNCUT BOOK OF THE YEAR

 

'A wild rock 'n' roll fairground ride of the damned.'

OBSERVER

 

'Excellent.'

NEW STATESMAN

 

'Entertaining . . . recalls twenty heady years at the centre of the British music business.'

FINANCIAL TIMES

 

A candid frontline account of an illustrious gonzo career as an independent music publicistduring the post-punk heyday of the 80s and 90s, featuring an introduction by Bill Drummond and a new foreword by Julian Cope.

 

Mick Houghton worked with some of the greatest, most influential and downright dysfunctional cult groups of the post-punk era and beyond - Ramones, Talking Heads, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Undertones, Felt and Sonic Youth among them. But the three acts Mick is most closely identified with are Echo & the Bunnymen, Julian Cope, and the KLF.

As confidant and co-conspirator, he navigated the minefield of rivalries and contrasting fortunes which make Fried & Justified such a candid, amusing and insightful picture of an exciting and inspirational period for music.
