"Wearing the right clothes, liking the right bands – this book summons up what it meant to be a teenager in the 70s." (Guardian)
"Charming coming of age tale … An innocent’s story, engagingly told." (Mojo)
"Brought back happy memories when bands and their fans were as one." (Damian O'Neill, The Undertones)
"[A] compelling and evocative memoir …full of great memories of bands, gigs, clothes, girls and parties. It celebrates the vitality of youth and the spirt of the times." (Sabotage Times)
"[A] gripping account of the post-punk period ... one of the most essential accounts of this tumultuous yet highly productive period of British music ... Tony Fletcher is an extraordinary character … This book will certainly bring back scores of vivid memories for those of us around Tony Fletcher’s age, and is required reading for anyone who wishes to know more about the late 1970’s music scene. More than that though, is the amazing human story and vivid characterisation that will have you hooked throughout as this period once again truly comes to life." (louderthanwar.com)

Refreshing & a REAL (360) page turner is the only way i can describe this delightful read from the talented Author Tony Fletcher, who also penned contender for best ever biog, 'Dear Boy' about Keith Moon, if ever there was one & as always paints pictures with his words.
From appointments with Madame Hand & her five lovely daughters, the running of the (much missed) excellent fanzine 'Jamming' turned record company, meeting your heroes (Well, some of them),catching gigs every other night, forming a band and what that alone brings to a teenagers life (I saw Apocalypse at the Rainbow 15th of November 1980 if the old grey cells recollect, Teddy anyone?), all this and sitting them dreaded O levels, what a blast!.
A message of "Be careful what you dream of..." Well, no! not at all, in fact, sometimes, dreams do come true (If you're prepared to put the work in!).
So thank-You Tony for the already four times read 'Boy About The Town'; I will dip into it forevermore.
So, in brief, if you love the eclectic music of 1976-1980 & all it evoked, knew of certain (so called )ever changing movements from those 'Back in Day' times, then this is the book for you, enchanting, stirring stuff indeed.
