Book Preview

Hi Everyone,

You might remember pledging to support a book about people listening to albums for the first time. It would have been some time after the Normans invaded us, but when we were still a part of Europe and America hadn't elected a man who talks like Jimmy Two Times from Goodfellas.

Anyway that book, the one you pledged for ages ago, is due to be released this September. 

I know, like me, you had begun to wonder whether the whole thing was real or not, that maybe this was the modern equivalent of the "Nigerian Prince" that sent you a fax asking you to deposit thousands of pounds into his bank account. But I assure you, it's actually happening. 

Just to prove the point, to myself more than anyone, I've posted a preview chapter on our website where we made Brian Koppelman (co-creator and writer of the TV show Billions) listen to Meat is Murder for the first time. 

Here it is.

All the best 

HRH Martin Fitzgerald 

Lagos, Nigeria.

The only thing I've anticipated more than this is 'Do you want yer old lobby washed down (Con Shine)' dropping off the top of the Irish Pop Charts in 1979. In the end, I gave up and left the Country. I think it still is #1
