The Big Midweek - Life Inside The Fall [LIMITED SIGNED COPIES]



Further Information

The first insider�s account of life inside The Fall, Steve Hanley�s story unfolds like a novel; from 1979 when he joined his schoolmates Marc Riley and Craig Scanlon in The Fall, he puts us right in the heart of the action: on stage, on the tour bus, in the recording studio, and up close and personal with an eccentric cast of band mates. These vividly drawn scenes give unprecedented insight into the intense, highly-charged creative atmosphere within The Fall and their relentless work ethic which has won them a dedicated cult following, high-art respectability and a unique place in popular music history.

�All the reasons why you should never join a band but also why it�s impossible not to. Bless them for going through it, so the rest of us mere mortals can enjoy the greatness that is The Fall.� � Jim Glennie

�Steve Hanley�s book will of course be an essential read for fans of The Fall. But anyone would be taken in by the way it gives you a totally different take on the rock and roll experience. It�s a voyage of self-discovery, but it doesn�t read as some forced feel-my-pain-confessional or rock biog clich�. Steve is calm, free of hysteria, and avoids self-conscious literary flourishes in favour of the kind of measured, effortless sounding tone that actually takes a lot of thought and effort to achieve� � Stewart Lee
