Apologies if this has been posted before;
I bought the above-mentioned book at the weekend, as the reviews seemed to be favourable, and it's a damn fine, funny and accurate portrayal of growing up reading the NME and listening to John Peel. It's almost a mirror to my musical upbringing, from New Model Army, Electro Hippies, Godfathers and of course The Smiths and Moz. There are many, many Moz stories in this book, as Stuart Maconie has met the man on numerous occasions - two chapters would be of particular interest to those here "This Charming Man" and "He Knows I'd Love To See Him". All in all, a great read, and full of interesting snippets.
