Sounds of Glory chronicles the rise of the most exciting generation of British music and musicians the world has ever seen - before or since. In rapid succession came punk, Ska, New Mod, Oi and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal...a firestorm of incendiary music, created and performed by geniuses and madmen. What a time to be a music journalist! At the heart of this rock 'n' roll tsunami was Britain's SOUNDS magazine. And at the heart of SOUNDS was Garry Bushell. Like his idols, Garry lived every day as if it was his last. Which it nearly was. Fed heroin in India by Hanoi Rocks. Going to prison with the Angelic Upstarts. Getting his eyebrows shaved off by Ozzy Osbourne. Getting raided by the C.I.D. Fighting a world champion boxer...All in a day's work for Garry. These were truly days of glory. The Specials. The Selecter. Madness. Bad Manners. 2-Tone visionary Jerry Dammers. Garry was right there at ground zero. Motorhead. The Jam. The Ruts. Twisted Sister. Rose Tattoo. Iron Maiden. Secret Affair. The Exploited. A unique explosion of raw and exciting bands, giant characters and radical ideas. You'll meet them all. Sounds of Glory brings together Garry's two rock memoirs Riff-Raff, Rebels & Rock Gods and The Power & The Glory in one brilliant collection. And it comes with four extra chapters not included in the previous volumes. This is a sometimes frightening but often laugh-out-loud road trip through the glory years of Sounds and the golden years of rock music. It packs in the Sex Pistols, Status Quo, Thin Lizzy, the Cockney Rejects, ZZ Top, Gary Moore, Judge Dread, UFO, Splodge, Crass, Englebert Humperdinck (!), Judas Priest and many more. It's a unique record of a time when punk kicked opened the doors of opportunity and chaos reigned.
