Looking forward to the Movie.,
This review is from: California Schemin (Paperback)This is a hugely entertaining and readable account of a couple of Scottish guys who could have been the UK's answer to Eminem. A definite must read for anyone with even a passing interest in the music business.
At times I found Bain's descriptions of how brilliant an act they were to be a little hard to swallow completely, but I suppose I can believe that they flirted with major stardom in the way that they did. It probably happens to bands all the time, only not quite as entertainingly as this; since the pair were living their lives as character actors 24 hours a day, pretending to be American rappers, for a period of 5 years!
The book is very well written and is being turned into a film by 'Trainspotting' author Irvine Welsh.
