About the Author
LORD ZION is best known as his role in the UK rock band SPiT LiKE THiS where he was the band leader, main songwriter and vocalist. Several singles, EPs and albums were released during the band's career - hitting the number one spot on Amazon and Top 10 in the UK rock charts. Many prestigious support slots on tours and festivals in the UK and Europe followed.
Around the same time he started the band (alongside long-term partner-in-crime Vikki Spit) a alternative clothing company, SMELLYOURMUM.COM, was created. Millions of hits and hundreds of thousands of unique slogan T-shirts later, the brand is still going strong and enjoys a unique position in the hearts of the rock, punk and alt community.
More recently, movies have taken a hold after the band appeared in some lo-fi horrors. Thinking "I could do that", Zion wrote, produced and directed a comedy horror MEET THE CADAVERS. He also appears in BLAZE OF GORY: SNOW and directed some addition scenes for the BLAZE OF GORY anthology.
Always writing - be it songs, screenplays or manuscripts - "A Life Amid Crisis" is Zion's first published book. Others are in the process of being written with the next due toward the end of 2017.

I have been following "Spit Like This" and "Smell Your Mum" for many years on Social Media (and attended "middle school" with Lord Zion). Whilst I was familiar with much of the content, there were some surprising (and often touching) insights into some of Z's inner thoughts and feelings through some of his darker times. Of these, I was very much unaware and this came as something of a surprise (I'm not sure I could be as publically open about such things).
I'd be fascinated to understand and see reviews from those who may be less familiar with Z and V than perhaps I am and wonder how this would translate in terms of "memoirs of stranger" ... but I myself certainly enjoyed the book (and that is from someone who rarely reads anything other than technical manuals).
The chapters are short so it is an easy book to simply pick up and put down between tasks if time is short but similarly you can do as I did, and complete it in a single sitting over a lazy Sunday afternoon....
This book is a wonderful glimpse into his life as a member of a rock band, a film director and, more importantly, a human being.
It is sometimes whimsical, sometimes turbulent but always well written and very engaging.
I highly recommend it.
The book fills in the gaps of what I have learned through knowing him, and is proof that good things can happen even when life dumps on you from a great height!
The author is brutally honest and straight to the point whilst also being very open about aspects of life that sometimes folk would class as taboo.
It has humour and drama in all the appropriate places (and occasionally in inappropriate places).
Extremely excellent book and a pleasure to read
I look forward to a sequel (hoping in anticipation)
