9780091960438: Sick On You: The Disastrous Untold Story of The Hollywood Brats - the Unsung Heroes of Punk

The Hollywood Brats are the greatest band you’ve never heard of.

Recording one near-perfect punk album in 1974, they were tragically ahead of their time.

With only a guitar, a tatty copy of the Melody Maker and his template for the perfect band, Andrew Matheson set out, in 1971, to make musical history. His band, The Hollywood Brats, were pre-punk prophets – uncompromising, ultra-thin, wild, untameable and outrageous. But thrown into the crazy world of the 1970s London music scene, the Brats ultimately fell foul of the crooks and heavies that ran it and an industry that just wasn’t ready for them.

Directly inspiring the London SS, the Clash, Malcolm McLaren and the Sex Pistols, The Hollywood Brats imploded too soon to share the glory. Punk’s answer to Withnail and I, Sick On You is a startling, funny and brilliantly entertaining period memoir about never quite achieving success, despite flying so close to greatness.

Recensione:

"The Hollywood Brats are a folk legend; they were doing what they were doing before anybody. This is one of the great rock'n'roll hard luck stories, by turns shocking and hilarious, and Andrew Matheson has a terrific eye for comic detail." (Bob Stanley author of Yeah Yeah Yeah: the Story of Modern Pop)

"Flagrant, addled, highly competitive, the Hollywood Brats predicted Punk in the moribund early seventies. Andrew Matheson’s concise, hilarious memoir tells the pleasure and pain of being an unheralded pioneer." (Jon Savage, author of England’s Dreaming)

"History is told by the victors, but Andrew Matheson's tale of rock and roll failure is much more compelling than any tired celebrity narrative. Lurid, stupid, crazed and quixotic, the primal adolescent silliness and arrogance of great pop music runs through every page." (Stuart Maconie)

"The Hollywood Brats are the greatest band I’ve ever seen" (Keith Moon)

"Britain’s great lost punk band" ( Q-Magazine)
