The Black Book - Richard Rouska

My old friend and musical compadre Richard Rouska has just published this book. It's an autobiography, a history of Leeds alternative music and publishing, and a cautionary tale concerning the rise and fall of Rouska Records. It also covers the two related musical projects that I worked on with Richard - Well Martin, This is Different and WMTID. I appear in it here and there ...

If you are interested in the post-punk period and its musical and political fallout, fanzine culture in the 1980s, Leeds and Yorkshire bands in this period and record industry shenanigans, this could be the book for you.
