Fried & Justified

Post by mkb » Tue Jul 02, 2019 8:54 pm

A new book by Mick Houghton, who was publicist at various times for Spiritualized, the JAMC, Echo & the Bunnymen, Julian Cope, the KLF/JAMs and others.

The subtitle for the book is Hits, Myths, Break-Ups and Breakdowns in the Record Business 1978-98. I don't think there's a huge amount in it about Spiritualized, although I've only read the introduction so far and it mentions the world trade centre show in 98.

Looks like it could be a great read. Just pre-ordered. Thanks for the heads up!

It is available as a Kindle download so I finished reading it the other day. Poor old Mick Houghton was doing PR for Echo and the Bunnymen, Julian Cope/Teardrop Explodes and Bill Drummond/KLF at the same time (along with a chunk of the Creation roster among others). Kind of mad way to earn a living…The book is a bit superficial but is very entertaining and quite informative.
