Headphones in the darkened bedroom - I was there...,
This review is from: Lost in Music (Paperback)
What I want to know is what Giles Smith was doing living large parts of my life for me. Okay, I wasn't in a bizarrly-named pop group (Cleaners from Venus?) but those were the bands I listened to, slavishly dissected, obessively absorbed, and spent all my money on. 'Lost in Music' is exactly how I grew up, and my love for it is not just because of the recognition on every page, but because he writes in a way which shows that he, too, loved every minute of that Pop Odyssey.
'Lost in Music' is much fuller and encompassing than his newspaper articles on Sport in 'Midnight in the Garden of Evil Kineval' but the humour, the sharp observation, the intimate arcane knowledge of the subject matter shine through.
You must excuse me now, I have to go to a darkened bedroom and listen to "Dark Side of the Moon" with my headphones on....
