Press for Anoint My Head book

‘Captures the time and the aspirations of a young band brilliantly. A great eye-opener into the absurd thought process of what it might take to headline Glastonbury!’ Steve Lamacq BBC 6 Music

“All the fun of youthful dreams and the poignancy of disappointment – plus a remarkable A-list cameo. Magnificent.’ Phil Harrison Time Out / Guardian

‘If This Is Spinal Tap is the quintessential rock mockumentary, Anoint My Head is the closest you’ll get to that in book form.’ Loz Etheridge God is in the TV *****

‘Anoint My Head is a great read which rips along at pace and would make an excellent dramatisation or comedy series.’ Iain Key Louder Than War *****

‘Hilarious warts-and-all story of a Britpop band whose big ambitions did not meet their talents’ Dan Carrier Camden New Journal

‘This heartwarmingly tatty ‘Withnail & I’-tinged must read for every soul pining for just one more chance to see another bunch of over-ambitious sonic terrorists preening themselves in an under- ventilated gigging sweatpit.’ Simon Williams Fierce Panda Records

‘Very good read. Some really good memories I had forgotten about. Great days. I hope it goes on to sell millions!’ Saul Galpen Nude Records

‘Super-evocative, proustian and a wonderful walk down memory lane’
Mark Bowen Wichita Recordings

‘A healthy measure of Nick Hornby with a dash of Adrian Mole had he joined an indie band. Just the tonic for these serious and uncertain days. Bottoms up!’ Josh Levay Pointy Birds keyboardist
