Book Description

10 Aug 2006
The Kaiser Chiefs are five men from Leeds who have taken the British musical scene by storm in just one year. The book opens in January 2005, with the band at the bottom of the bill on the annual NME tour. It ends with them performing at the Brit Awards 2006 as the biggest band in the UK. A RECORD OF EMPLOYMENT will tell their story on a month-by-month basis, through photographs taken by Peter Hill and the members of the band. The photographs are excellent and will inspire memories amongst the fans that have seen them play on their sell-out tours. The text will provide revealing insights into what makes the band tick. The remarkable story of the Kaiser Chiefs' rise to fame is overwhelming. 2005 has seen them open the Live 8 concert in Philadelphia, as one of only two British acts to perform there; their album enter the charts at number 3 and stay within the top 40 for 37 weeks; and their tours sell out in minutes. Ricky, Andrew, Simon, Peanut and Nick are close friends who have known one another for years, and their experiences in this uniquely authorised book will match the expectations of every fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chiefs Chiefs Kaiser Chiefs Kaiser Kaiser Chiefs 14 Aug 2006
I bought this book on the day it came out. I found it brilliant. The photos in the book a brilliantly taken (kudos to Mr Hill!) and the input by the band is informative and fun. Even though I loved this book, I don't think it would really cater for all fans needs. In my opinion I think it would be more appreciated by a big fan of the Kaiser Chiefs, like myself and not someone who has a passing fancy for the band.

All in all, I personally think it's well worth the money and if you're an avid Kaisers fan then this is the book for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great diary! 10 Mar 2009
That's what this book is.
A photographic diary of the band.
Very well done, with loads of photos that gives us the perspective of all the members, together with small texts that explains what's happening.
Everything is here. Their greatest gigs. The tours. The making of the videoclips. etc.
If you're a Kaiser's fan you must have this!
