As the Rolling Stones and The Who drag themselves through yet more world tours and middle-aged punk rockers plot nostalgic reunions, this lively and controversial book charts the decline of a generation that started out as self-anointed world-changers and ended up as a ‘colostomy rock’ parody.


  • A book with every promise of doing to the literary world what the sex pistols did to the music scene in the late 1970s.

  • This entertaining polemic has plenty of targets: corporate rock bands like the Rolling Stones; corporate rock magazines like, well, Rolling Stone; MTV; do-gooder rock festivals; and just about anyone or anything else who commodifies teenage rebellion and dyspepsia for immense personal gain.

    New Yorker
  • A splendidly ill-tempered assault on the music industry, nostalgic boomers and rock stars who refuse to die ... a fine piece of punk journalism, and a barrel of laughs for like-minded readers.
