4072713980_bb03c28b77‘None of those fuckers thought I had a book in me because they write the books,’ he says. ‘When I tell them that I’ve written a book, the response is: Oh – and the conversation is abruptly changed.

‘They like to believe that you are some kind of noble savage with some intuitive grasp of something. They always deny the fact that you’ve worked very hard. They never realised I could go and write a book…’

Reviews » Self-Prescribed Psychosis (published 12/06/2009)

bookcoverfrontEschewing tepid tales about his favourite bands, Bob accurately describes how life was really lived — and death really died — in extreme conditions of debauch and poverty underpinned by a sense of overwhelming stare-at-the-wall-drooling boredom, punctuated only by outbursts of violence and furore, usually fuelled by whatever substances came to hand — including poisonous mushrooms on one disastrous, yet amusingly depicted, occasion.
