About the Author

Colyer’s passion is for music and he writes with the insight of someone who has inhabited the world of the professional musician but also with the infectious enthusiasm of someone who is a fan like anyone of us. He also comes at the subject from an entirely personal, slightly sideways perspective, with no agenda and no product to sell. It’s entertaining and inspiring in equal measure. You’ll want to listen to or view the many tracks and video clips he mentions. Indeed, it could be considered a downside to reading this in book form rather than online that quickly clicking on a link is not an option. On the other hand, it’s great to have all the articles from this period gathered together in one place and, Colyer being an art designer by trade, the book itself is very pleasing to the eye
It’s a tad pricy, and would have benefitted from an index, but I’d still thoroughly recommend this book.
The book has been lovingly compiled, rammed with colour photos and interesting stories. Colyer has a good ear for a tune, an eye for the out-of-ordinary and he can write a bit too.

If you are looking for an eclectic meander through music’s quirkier streets (and Bob Dylan) this book is for you.
