How I Failed to Make it as a Britpop Indie Rockstar

It’s 1992 and Horace dreams of becoming a rockstar with his band the Pointy Birds. The only problem is that his day-job (mis)filing vinyl in a Soho record store is stealing all his time and energy, plus rival bands like Suede, Blur, Pulp and Radiohead are moving on to bigger and better things.  But then someone called Ricky offers his services as a band manager and at last the dream can start.

Anoint My Head is the tale of a band who didn’t become rich, or famous but had a manager who did.  It is also the story of a musical era, and documents the rise of some of the biggest British Britpop bands of the nineties, plus a comedian who went on to write quite a successful sitcom about a paper merchants in Slough.

A coming-of-age story about pursuing your dreams and what happens when reality gets in the way. 

Perfect for fans of Caitlin Moran, Nicky Hornby & Ricky Gervais.

"You'll read this book in one or two sittings - it's pure pleasure. All the fun of youthful dreams and the poignancy of disappointment - plus a remarkable A-list cameo. Magnificent."
