If you’ve ever wanted to be in a band, you need to read Tracey Thorn’s book, followed swiftly by this one by the amazing Viv Albertine. Where Tracey is mostly quite sensible in her music career, Viv is wild and does all the stuff you imagine being in a band leads you to do. If anyone has a teenage daughter who thinks she wants to go into the music business, buy her both books immediately and make her read them, cover to cover. I couldn’t put it down. Also it’s got to be the best book title ever.
