Nothing But A Good Time

By Justin Quirk

A cultural history of Glam Metal: where it came from, how it defined America in the 1980s and how it all came crashing down.

New week, more metal...

Hello - hope everyone had a good weekend. Just wanted to update you on progress for NOTHING BUT A GOOD TIME. Last week was another busy one, with lots of pledges coming in after our feature in Classic Rock magazine. Another feature should be going live on The Quietus this week, so keep an eye out for that.

As usual, I'd like to thank you for your support of the book, but can't emphasise enough that it's word of mouth which really gets the pledges coming in. If you can post the main link ( on Facebook and Twitter, or even just mail it directly to a few people who you think would enjoy it, that moves the needle for us.

And as an ongoing thank you, there's an ever-growing playlist over at Spotify where we're soundtracking the project. Please feel free to add any classics  you think we've missed. And finally, as I research the book, I've been uploading various interesting old adverts, photos and other bits of ephemera to my Instagram account - you can follow me there @no_ufos. This week's seen additions from WASP, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and some new battlejacket shots. See you over there.
