Description

Author(s): Houghton, Mick

A gonzo tour through the glory years of indie rock n' roll and acid house by one of the best-loved characters in the music business.

About the author:

Mick Houghton began his career writing about music before starting out in PR at WEA in 1978. Two years later he set up the independent Brassneck Publicity. He began writing again in 2001 for Mojo and later Uncut, and has since published two books, I've Always Kept A Unicorn: The Biography of Sandy Denny and Becoming Elektra: The True Story of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label, as well as being one of the Grammy-nominated compilers of Forever Changing: The Golden Age of Elektra Records, 1963-1973. He's also compiled and written extensive notes for countless reissues by such artists as Nico, Judee Sill, Richard Thompson, Marianne Faithful, Bob Dylan, Billy Fury, John Martyn, Donovan and Pentangle. Mick finally retired from PR work four years ago, and he'll only consider coming back if the Teardrop Explodes reform in their original lineup.
