Product description

Review

Document and Eyewitness is an essential purchase for anyone who was involved in or influenced by the punk maelstrom of 1976, a riveting evocation of a period in musical history that becomes more important the further we get away from it... Taylor's book is a joy... If you read one music book this summer, make it this one. (Dylan Jones INDEPENDENT)

DOCUMENT AND EYEWITNESS's treatment of its main players is affectionate-going-hagiographical, but the implication of that end-point is inescapable. The journey from the mid-70s to now denotes the arrival of an altogether duller world: music that tends to be reverential rather than iconoclastic.' (GUARDIAN)

Taylor knows his stuff, painting a picture of a chaotic organisation with a good heart... a story that's fascinating and entertaining in equal measure. (BIG ISSUE)

The Fall and the Smiths - even if these were the only bands Rough Trade had signed it would be worth a 400-plus page book like this. (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS)

The journey from the mid-70s to now denotes the arrival of an altogether duller world: music that tends to be reverential rather than iconoclastic. (GUARDIAN)

'Long overdue... The type of reader who buys rock biographies will crave the detailed information that spans the late 70s to 1991 - and they will not be disappointed ****. (RECORD COLLECTOR)
