Product Description


To have as many tracks in this books as we have is a great honour, I'm over the moon! It's funny, when we were young we would have scoffed, but at my age...I'm as happy as a sand boy! --Peter Hook, Joy Division/ New Order

Xfm has always been about bringing great music to the airwaves that wouldn't get a look-in otherwise, this book brings together the best of the best. --Kele Okereke, Bloc Party

Xfm's John Kennedy was the first DJ to play our music, long before we signed to Warp. I'll never get used to the fact that our music has touched so many people, but I'm aware of the big part Xfm has played in its dissemination, which makes them alright by me! Who doesn't love a good list to argue about? --Paul Smith, Maximo Park

5.0 out of 5 stars Top read for music fans! 8 Nov 2010
By Edwina
I've listened to Xfm for a good while now and trust them to play the best in rock and alternative music. this book doesn't disppoint - featuring some of my favourite bands and songs; everything from blondie and blur to verve and velvet underground! i've been looking for great music read and this is full of interesting stories from music industry insiders about each of the songs, plus xfm have included all of the sleeve artwork in its full-colour glory! i'm the sort of person that loves to look through the artwork when i buy a CD, so this ticks all the boxes for me - it looks superb! hurrah to Xfm.
