A valuable companion to the popular music podcast, A Word in Your Attic

For those for whom pop trivia is far from a trivial matter, each episode of A Word in Your Attic contains real gems.

Who knew, for instance, that Marc Bolan was inspired to form the duo Tyrannosaurus Rex after seeing Ravi Shankar wow 3000 people in Luxembourg?

Or that John Lydon’s first concert was Cliff Richard and The Shadows and that he has a soft spot for the Bee Gees?

Or that Roxy Music were ushered on to the roster of Island Records after a meeting with Bryan Ferry at the Golden Egg on Fleet Street?

Or indeed that Clare Grogan of Altered Images was discovered while working, almost Human League 'Don’t You Want Me'-style, as a waitress in the Spaghetti Factory restaurant in Glasgow. And that she never saw Gregory’s Girl, the 1981 film that helped make her a cover star of Just Seventeen, until some thirty years after its original release?

Combining transcripts, extracts, and anecdotes from its knowledgeable hosts and interlocutors, this expansive gift book takes us through the series's ultimate highlights.
