Riff-Raff, Rebels & Rock Gods

(2014)
A non fiction book by

 
Riff-Raff, Rebels & Rock Gods chronicles the rise of the most exciting generation of British music and musicians the world has ever seen - before or since. In rapid succession came Ska, New Mod, anarcho-punk, Oi and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

A firestorm of incendiary music, created and performed by both geniuses and madmen. What a time to be a music journalist!

At the heart of this rock tsunami was SOUNDS magazine. And at the heart of SOUNDS was your narrator, Garry Bushell.

Like his idols, Garry lived every day as if it was his last. Which it nearly was. Fed heroin in India by Hanoi Rocks . Going to chokey with the Angelic Upstarts. Getting his eyebrows shaved off by Ozzy Osbourne. All in a day's work for Garry.

These were truly days of glory. The Specials. The Selecter. 2-Tone visionary Jerry Dammers. Garry was right there at ground zero. The Exploited. Twisted Sister. Rose Tattoo. Iron Maiden. A unique explosion of raw and exciting bands, giant characters and radical ideas. You'll meet them all.

Riff-Raff, Rebels & Rock Gods is a brilliant new memoir from a leading rock journalist about the golden years of rock music: a unique moment when Rock Gods really did bestride the earth.

Or thought they did.
