"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
