Satin Jacket Blues by Alan Savage

satin jacket bluesLike a cross between the films Kes and That’ll Be The Day, Alan Savage‘s Satin Jacket Blues is part coming-of-age story and part rock memoir.

Kicking off  at the start of the seventies and ending in 1980, Savage’s autobiography is the story of a frustrated working class lad living in the heavily industrial north-east of England whose life is set alight by music.

The book takes in glam rock, punk rock, post punk and more – as well as Savage’s own bittersweet musical endevours.

Satin Jacket Blues is a joy – touching, funny and a right riveting read.
