Wired Up - UK Launch Party this Friday (21st of September)

Friday sees the UK Launch of The Wired Up book and the fantastic Guida are playing (they also playing on Saturday at the Lexington –don’t miss this band!

I wrote the foreword along with contributing many of the sleeves. I look forward to finally getting my hands on a copy myself…

This evening has been organised to celebrate the launch of a brand new book, Wired Up! Here's the book blurb. The first 100 copies will have a free Hector 7"...

In these 384 pages of garish, pop and glam rock European picture sleeve glory, "Wired Up!" celebrates the sights and sounds of the zeitgeist aberration that was early 70's glitter rock records; where the flash, shock and outrageousness of the picture sleeve oftentimes proved just as important as the explosive sounds within. A renaissance of style, a riot of colour and the raving rocking rebirth of the three-minute-pop single, "Wired Up!" is not only an early clue to the new direction rock and roll was taking in the 1970's, but the final statement on a disposable era's lasting appeal.

Advance £4 tickets now available from:


Entry on the door: £6

Jeepers! Just tried to order the book, but shipping was more than the $30 cost of the book. I'll maybe wait till someone imports it!!
