5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you might expect from Tracey Thorn, 5 Jun 2014
This review is from: Bedsit Disco Queen: How I grew up and tried to be a pop star (Paperback)
This is my third music biography after Heart and Kate Bush, and I wasn't disapointed. I'd heard Tracey do a couple of radio interviews back in the early days of ETGB, so was able to read the entire book as though with her speaking voice. Though I didn't know a lot about her as a person, the whole easy tone of the book - the honesty, self-depraction and humour helped you get the feel that you have gotten to know her. I was lucky enough to get into Thorns music quite early on, after the two Marine Girls albums, a Distant Shore and ETGB's first single, and basically grew up with the band and it's output. So like other's, reading Tracey's journey did bring back lots of memories of my own teens, through my 20's, 30's and 40's. There are some great anecdotes here, plus some great insights into the whole music biz crazyness. There are some real laugh out loud moments. I lost interest in her musical output when the whole dance mix thing kicked in, but this book has encouraged me to go back and listen to that with fresh ears. I think I now have a chance of catching up with where she's moved to musically, and intend to buy her recent solo albums that I've been studiously ignoring. I recommend this book to anyone who loved Tracey's music
