BOUGHT FOR MY SON AND HE WAS QUITE PLEASED WITH IT A QUALITY PRODUCT Such a stunning book, evoking the time and place beautifully as we follow the paths of the boys that became Madness The individual voices of each band member come through so vividly that you can t help but hear them in your head as you read. This is a great read, as all the skulduggery and delinquency of their early lives reminded me of my misspent yoof Gang fights, getting beaten up, nicking, shoplifting, speed, spliffs, acid, the Chelsea Shed end, magistrates, punks, skins and the brilliant music we all grew up to The good old days of the 1970, although I don t miss them as the chaps also accurately convey a lot of the struggles of being young and rejected and having a lack of opportunities and direction Thank god they had Barso who drove them on to eventual success Brilliant read, I couldn t put it down. A must read for any fan of the band If you ve seen the film Take It Or Leave It , you will recognise some of their stolen rags to better class of rags trajectory into the public eye and pop stardom notoriety More of the same here but in much detail There s never a dull moment in here and each page has humour, honesty, dishonesty and a healthy dollop of good ol reality A reminder of simpler times perhaps, as well as the effort and commitment it took to get a band formed and off the starting blocks Excellent stuff. Excellent book , and as you would expect from Madness,full of wit,flying through the pages as it s such an easy read.If you re a fan of the band this book is a must by.If you re not.buy it anyway ,you may learn something.
