Customer Review

on 24 November 2012
The length of the bibliography at the back gives a good indication of the way the writing process behind this book. I'm not saying it's not enjoyable but there is a great sense of deja vu as it plods along and frankly nothing new is added.
There are also far too many minor and major errors in the text which become annoying after a while.
The debut from Echo and the Bunnymen was Crocodiles,not Heaven Up Here, the Kraftwerk album Tour De France dates from 2003.
Japan were much more than mere also rans at the beginning of the 80's and I never thought I would be defending The Brotherhood of Man but they did manage 2 further number ones after Eurovision rather than immediately disappearing as is suggested in the text.
Still , at least he gets it right about everything going downhill after Band Aid and particularly Live Aid.
Buy Rip It Up by Simon Reynolds instead.
