Just For One Day

Brit-pop made me a wee bit nervous, l think l was too old to get fully immersed in it. l was around in Camden Town when Brit-pop seemed to be everywhere l ventured, and l felt lt was a cool scene and it felt you know happening, but l still felt slightly awkward, not that this was a problem as l embraced it all the same. It reminded me a little bit of when there was a mod revival at the end of the seventies, l know there not linked or maybe they were, but somehow, this remained set in my mind, but never the less l got through it, and enjoyed the good night-life and goodtimes with lovely people it was all good fun what else could you want. Louise Wener was in the band Sleeper who were definitely a part of Brit-pop or was it New- wave of New- wave, its funny having names for musical genres l guess it's to do with marketing, anyway im digressing here, back to Louise and Sleeper l mention her because l've just read her magnificent book called Just for one day. It starts with a nostalgic trip back to Redbridge Northeast of London, at the end of the seventies, and its very familiar aspects, about being young and doing things, like taping the top forty songs on your cassette player hoping your relatives wont interupt you, while you are taping your favourite hit that week, and hanging around and just coming to terms with being teenage. It's actually refreshing to read a book that dedicates itself to the growing up aspect, and you know what, l find out that Louise is not that much younger than me and l totally relate to her surroundings and enviroment. l found myself identifying with many scenarios that emerged in the early chapters. Sleeper may not have formed with it's well known line-up of Louise, Jon Stewart, Diid Osman and Andy Maclure, had the bandmembers not been fooled by a glorious fake review, that Louise knocked up, hoodwinking her band into thinking they were a happening up and coming outfit, a genius move and one that would be used to entail record company interest, and yes this again worked in her/there favour. Louise gives great tips, on what happens when you tour, and theres plenty to watch out for like when touring with Blur don't steal their cheese, and keep away from Irish bars when on the road with The Boo Radleys. You could say that Louise takes a cynical view but this makes her writing much more awesome and witty, as we plow through both the ups and downs of Sleeper's journey through what is known as Brit-pop they also had many hit songs like lnbetweener, What do l do now, Sale of the century and Nice guy Eddie. Nowadays Louise writes books and spends her time making sure her children never find the music stuff that stays hidden in the attic. Chris McDougall

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
