Product description


"Mr Gig is a sweet and tender paean to a very particular lost love, the live gig, and a wise and witty account of how one man set about rekindling that youthful romance" --Stuart Maconie, author of Cider with Roadies

"Written with enthusiasm and nostalgic curiosity, Mr Gig is an affectionate celebration of live music in all its forms" --James Fearnley from The Pogues

"Mr Gig perfectly captures what it s like to become a hopeless live music addict: the anticipation, the expense, the social ineptitude, the adrenalin and the utter, unexplainable elation of it all" --Steve Lamacq

About the Author

Nige Tassell is a music journalist whose writing has appeared in The Word, Q, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and New Statesman among others. He lives with his family in the Mendip Hills in Somerset. Mr Gig is his first book.
