I'm currently reading "Fucked by Rock- the unspeakable confessions of Zodiac Mindwarp" and it's hilarious. I urge everyone to buy a copy for every room of the house.

This brings me on to the subject- great books on music. What are they?

Here are my picks.

"Fucked by Rock"- Mark Manning
"Head on"- Julian Cope
"England's dreaming"- Jon Savage
The Nick Drake biography by Patrick Stewart.

Are you Ready for the Country? - Peter Doggett

A great insight into Old time music and Country turning into Rock n Roll, Country turning into 60's/70's Country Rock and 80's/90's New Country ending with 90's/2000 Alternative Country.


There is also a compilation album to accompany this, I have just noticed
