Product Description

Review

"The energy in the stories makes you feel you are right there beside him in the yard. From the first chapter until the last I was hooked. This book is how it was for us writers and how we all liked to dodge the authorities to get our name up." - Lee Bofkin - Global Street Art "A complete menace to London's transport network. He was always one step ahead of us." - Spokesperson for British Transport Police "GLYNN JUDD is a real writer who takes the reader back in time where you were out there racking paint, going to the yards, lay ups and tunnels and looking out for the Vandal Squad who were hired to take us writers down. This book is an explosive ride through the graffiti world that most individuals only dream about. You're there with him and you feel the rush, the adrenaline. It holds your interest from start to finish. The book has everything in it that makes you feel like you're there with him. If you love graffiti and have a flair for excitement you'll love this book, it has grit it has heart and adventure and most of all it is riveting from start to finish. ADDICTED TO STEEL is a winner and the only real story that you'll read about the graf game in a long time. The book actually made me start racking paint again and I'm ready to bomb. I give this book 10 out of 10, it's a must read. Enjoy!" - FUZZ ONE

About the Author

Glynn Judd is an experienced graffiti expert with over twenty five years hands-on practice of the subculture of graffiti vandalism on trains. His involvement with graffiti spans from the mid 1980 s where he grew up in a small suburb of Essex and relocated to London in 1996. Glynn has written a number of articles about graffiti culture for the British press including, most recently, for The Guardian newspaper. He has appeared in The Metro, The Evening Standard and The Daily Mirror. He has been interviewed by several on line publications such as Not Guilty magazine, Aerosol Planet and Wordplay magazine and appeared in several documentaries produced by Short form films. He has participated in youth workshops run by Croydon council and Muswell Hill Baptist church discussing his experiences in graffiti. He still actively writes graffiti but strictly in a legal environment in gallery shows and workshops in England and Europe. He enjoys freelancing for the British media and is currently writing a follow up to his debut novel, Addicted to Steel.

Absolutely supurb read from start to finish filled with close calls,mad cat n mouse chases,barefaced cheek & wit! I think every writer whose dared to step on the wrong side of the tracks be it as a toy or prolific in the game writer will beable to identify a part or parts of this book & the memories will come flooding back. The planning,the waiting,the cold...even the bit in it where he was dying for a s***!!!! *i could definatly identify with on at least one occasion* lol If you wasn't a writer then its a great insight into a graffiti vandals world & clearly demonstrates that its far from being just a 'mindless act of vandalism'.... Brilliant 40th bday gift for me from my other half. It felt like you were rolling along there in the action,senses on full alert,heart pumping,mixture of fear & adrenelin. Bought back the odd occasions when we ventured to sidings or trackwalking in my late teens. Thanks for sharing your adventures & missions. Really enjoyed reading it & its great knowing that with all this modern technology & security enforcement it was still not enough to deter many from bombin trains & you guys were still one step ahead. Some of the tales had me in stitches. Thumbs up to mr Judd 10/10

Great book from someone who manages to impart a great amount of atmosphere to the stories - nice to see a book about the culture that is based on actual stories rather than just endless flicks!
