2005 ~ Screaming Headless Torsos
It is such a shame that the Fuze and the gang can't get over to the UK more often but there ya go. This, and their 1995 (At the Knitting Factory) foray, show skilled musicianship, originality and passion in bucket-loads.

It was the first book I had read by Edmund Cooper and it made me hungry for more - though his other works never matched up to this novel for me. It tells a story with many themes. It tells the adventures of a group of teens growing up in a very strange London indeed. Queen Victoria is on the throne, her Prime Minister is Churchill and we are at war with jet fighters battling dirigibles across the shielded skyline! It is the twists and turns in this novel that make it Cooper's finest work.

Thirty years later, I still remember… Read more
