In Stories We Could Tell, he recalls how the New Musical Express was adapting so that it could capture the violent change of the 1977 punk world. Here, it's The Paper, formerly The Music Paper, a kind of alternative Oxbridge where music geeks, romantic fools, ideological warriors, would-be William Burroughs and enterprising social misfits receive a special kind of cultural education.

Didn’t expect to see you again,’ he said to Terry, running the tip of his tongue over a Rizla. PJ had changed into his stripy pyjamas. That’s why they called him PJ. PJ had changed into his stripy pyjamas J would put his jammies on, bring out the Old Holborn, and get ready for what he called a good old kip. ‘Thought you’d be flying all over the world with those drug-taking weirdos. That was last week,’ Terry said. Where else they got to go?’

Matthew MacFadyen could read the telephone book to me and I would be happy. The story line was fine. I also remember the day that Elvis died.

Tony Parsons background as a music journalist on the NME certainly qualifies him to write this novel about the music scene / culture of the late 70s (1977) through the eyes of 3 young music reporters, and although it is well-written, the central characters were indifferent and almost interchangeable.

Maybe I was born a few years too late to really get into the story, but I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as I had his previous books.

i really enjoyed this book. Although I was only quite young in 77 I do remember a lot of the music and the fashion. This book took me back years. I can remember Teds of all ages. With those long jackets, thin short legs and brothel creepers. The names the places the bands. Its about being 19 Girlfriends, mates & getting high. The spirit of things. The people back then. It was a better time. Very good. Full of nostalgia couldn't put it down.
