I remember coming across the Zounds "Can't Cheat Karma" on a record stall in my home town years ago and have considered the 7" along with the following "Curse of Zounds" album to inhabit a special place in my youth. Steve Lake seems to right the sort of songs that stick in your head and crop up with brilliant relevance whenever circumstances deem it necessary.

Great to see then, that Steve has furnished us with this book that not only outlines some of his inspirations behind the lyrics but also gives an honest, occasionally humorous (sometimes critical) perspective on the struggles and triumphs of him and the band. One overall positive message I got from both the book and Zounds themselves was that no matter how rough things get it's a case of push on, don't give up, and try and have a bloody good laugh whenever you can!

Right, so now I'm off to put the kettle on and listen to their latest album "The Redemption of Zounds"...

Format: Paperback
There's nothing on Zounds apart from snippets on their website and minor sleevenotes. I have entitled this "Better than no book on Zounds" as that's what it is rather than an indepth look at the history of the band and all the anorak facts that readers of rock biographies like to know. But Steve Lake hasn't claimed anymore than lyrics and notes - so it does what it says on the tin. Had there been more research to read I would've read it but Zounds were so obscure in the first place I'm happy this book actually exists. The format and design are spot-on and it's a great read - so thanks Steve. Excellent value for money and a must have for the Zounds fan/collector. From a purely selfish point of view I would have liked to see more pics, release and tour dates in detail and more about the 1992 reunion. Overall I can't fault it and I think you should buy it!!!
