About this deal

The Saoudi brothers have an Algerian dad and a mum from Huddersfield, so much of the early part of the book focuses on their experiences with appalling racism in Northern Ireland, where they lived for a while after their partners acrimoniously parted, and their visits to North Africa to try and make some sense of their identity. He was staring into my eyes, munching his own speed-ravaged fea- tures, making an awful gummy sound as he did so. Lias turns to art to save himself from the grimness (there is an excellent Schiele-esque self-portrait in the book); it leads him to London and the Slade art school. The madness, intelligence, and belligerence of the main protagonists is nothing short of mesmerising. It involves a spectacular amount of drug taking and a wanton disregard for anything approaching professionalism.

Given Lias’ art school background (and Saul’s come to think of it), you’d think explaining how the output for these 21st C. It’s impossible to mythologise a band when they fit into a cascade of differing rock legends in the very same chapter.

Deftly co-written by author Adelle Stripe and FWF singer Lias Saoudi, and perfectly summarised by the former: "A drug band with a rock problem". The Landlord had been assuring me for some weeks that the solution to my Glastonbury 2015 dilemma – we had two slots on the Sunday, one at 4 a. At times the stories are disturbed and evoke a feeling a kin to that of watching a car crash slowly unravel, at others they're rife with a deep melancholic shade of blue that evoke a pure sympathetic desire for them to succeed and make it to the other side of the gauntlet.

With rare exceptions such as bank holidays, the book group meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 7. Brad Elterman has photographed numerous bands and artists since the 1970s including Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Sex Pistols, Runaways, The Who, ABBA, Blondie, Michael Jackson, Ramones, Madonna, Iggy Pop, etc. A book full of mad antics, and the occasional bit of music-“Fat White Family are a Drug band with a Rock problem. I liked them a lot, though they argued from start to finish, and Saul eventually stormed off, supposedly because he couldn’t stand to be in the interview any longer, but really because he needed to score.But to keep ourselves on our toes, we have a rule that author gender is alternated, girl-boy-girl-boy, and the continents always rotated (with occasional glitches). He’s the main source of what happened when and to whom, and personally takes over the storytelling in the italicised parts of the book. Uh, uh, hey man, love your band, especially that tune about ‘bringing out the obligatory niggers”,’ I scoffed back.
