Fans of music – contemporary and retro – will get an absolute kick out of reading There’s Your Quote, Mate: an anthology of outrageous interviews and memoirs from behind the scenes of a mixed-up, muddled-up music scene.
Collated over 20 years in conjunction with Cream magazine, the book is bursting with industry antics, fabulous anecdotes and clever listicles – all adding up to one outlandish, outrageous read.
It is an up-close look at a music industry gone utterly mad, starring a cast of thousands. As one reviewer put it, “It’s as though a script were being passed around an asylum for rock stars, each one delivering their crazy part on cue.”
