BookTourSouth

We hear a few of the venues will be having drink specials, and drinks named after bands or songs depicted in the book. Three Sheets to the Kevin Shields, anyone?

The name of this little tour is in honor if this EP. What a shame Primal Scream had to cancel the US tour, maybe there could have been a meeting of the minds.

 

 

Wivenhoe Park Recent Press

Amazing review on Muso’s Guide….

“The real protagonist of Wivenhoe Park, in fact, is the music, and the book celebrates the scene from the chapter headings right down to its soul. It’s an addictive read, an affirmative and faithful story of sex, drugs and rock & roll. Where an equivalent novel such as Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity becomes evermore unrealistic to get to its happy ending,Wivenhoe Park retains a believable optimism through sheer faith in rock & roll.”

Just a tiny plug in Cleveland Magazine, but I’ll take it!

Take It From The Man

This was nice to see, thanks Anton Newcombe! 

Here’s an issue of Vendetta back in 2000 with Brian Jonestown Massacre and a feature on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club after they’d just signed a deal with Virgin Records. Those 3 of Clubs days in Los Angeles were great fun….

Thanks to everyone who came out on a very cold Saturday afternoon. The signing was a lot of fun and Otis the store cat was a huge hit with everyone!

Cool press for Wivenhoe Park

Kent3The official Wivenhoe Park book release party was a great smash. A couple of really cool articles have been published about the event.

Laura DeMarco wrote a nice feature for cleveland.com, while Gerald Bigstuff wrote this for his excellent blog popcultureredefined.
