Product Description

Review

A breath of fresh air... They were one of the main reasons I wanted to be in a band. -- Will Sergeant, Echo & the Bunnymen Deaf School totally informed the way we formed Madness. Why didn't they make it? It's one of the greatest mysteries in pop. -- Suggs, Madness Deaf School were a unique inspirational touchstone for a whole generation of creative rebellion and musical ambition that revived Liverpool's music scene after the Big Bang of the 1960s. --Holly Johnson, Frankie Goes To Hollywood

Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book. Very evocative - took me right back to the 70s Liverpool music scene (that I joined just after most of the events described). I'm a massive fan of the band and enjoyed discovering how it all came together.

And the poem from Tim Whittaker at the end is a master-stroke.

Wonderful.

Format: Paperback
A brilliantly evocative portrait of Liverpool and its music in the 1970s. I wasn't there - but this book really brought the time and the place to life for me. As to the band, its story is a heady mix of hope, frustration, chaos, comedy and ultimately celebration. Oddly, the fact that the band all have alter-egos (which I always found a little artsy) really works in this narrative, brining unexpected colour to a story that was never black and white to begin with. Beautifully written as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of THE finest bands to ever come out of Liverpool but this story doesn't do them any justice at all, poor selection of photos from their incendiary live shows and no real follow up on "what happened next".

Always good from Paul Du Noyer, his Wonderous Place book is the best
