Just read 'Who Killed Martin Hannet?' by Colin Sharp. It was great to read about the early Manchester alternative music scene. I remember going to some of the venues mentioned. The Stranglers get a mention early on in the book being part of the London scene. Oh and by the way, nobody killed him!!

Reading books takes too long and makes me feel tired,however,I love a bit of Dickens (especially in the winter) and (Auto) Biographies.The last 2 decent ones I read were of Ian Dury and Gary Numan.

THE EROTIC REVIEW

Well. I haven't yet finished it if the truth be known, but so far I've read an interesting contribution by Independent journalist Yasmin Alibhai- Brown and an extraordinary section on chinese foot binding entitled The Lotus Foot.

"Every night I smell her feet, placing the tip of my nose by the smell,
which is like no identifiable aroma or perfume. I only regret that I
cannot swallow down the white chestnut with one mouthful. But I can
still place it in my mouth and chew the plantar. Much of it has already
been "swallowed", the use of my tongue is , naturally, subsidiary. "

Started reading "American Psycho" again,I have to admit it is one of my favourite books.The first time I read it I though I was going to need to take a shower.But years down the line,I understand the point Brett Easton Ellis was trying to illustrate.

A modern classic.....although not for everyone...... :shock:

"HEARTFELT- Supping Bovril From The Devil's Cup"

It's about a Hibby who becomes a Jambo for a season :shock:
Pretty funny it is too, Irvine Welsh reckons it's the best book he's
read about football or Embra.

Not my usual sort of book. I read it last year although I did skip the occasional page when it got too much for me :shock: :shock: :shock: . I agree that it is an amazing book though.
