Based upon exclusive interviews with the man himself, this is the Ultimate Listening Guide to the first twenty years of that career, from the Soft Boys to Moss Elixir ... or was it Mossy Liquor?
It is a remarkable tale, packed with detail, collector info and, of course, that unmistakeable Hitchcockian humor.
The Ultimate Listening Guide is a series of short (approx 40 page) guides to the lives, times and most crucial recordings by a wide range of artists.
Many are based around exclusive interviews featuring the artist’s own recollections and reactions to his or her unfolding career, and are packed with both personal information and key collector’s data.
For the past thirty years, author Dave Thompson has been a contributor to a variety of collectors publications, including Goldmine, DISCoveries, Record Collector, Spiral Scratch, Live Music Review, Big O and British Punk Collector. He is also editor of the long-running Goldmine record price guides.
