Description

"If you think all rock-music memoirs are a mixture of PR fluff, second-hand observations and strategically selected memories, then "Here""Comes Everybody: The Story of the Pogues" is the book to make you change your mind. . . . That Fearnley hasn't been quarantined for writing such a warts-and-all tale says much about the band and the bond formed across 30 fractious years. A band of brothers to the very end, then, and with a fine, salty memoir to raise a glass to." --"Irish Times""This is an old story, older than the '80s even: the epic adventures of Anglo-Saxon troubadours led 'round the world by a growling Celtic demigod famous for good songs and bad judgment." --Sarah Vowell, author of "Assassination Vacation""The portrait of Shane is so vivid and disturbing, the capturing of the various scenes they moved through so affectionate and sad, and the writing so good. James Fearnley describes the experience of being onstage extremely well--the second-by-secondness of it, the way a person actually experiences it, the furious concentration required. He has made a work of art to set beside the band's records. Beautiful." --John Jeremiah Sullivan, author of "Pulphead"
