Rockaganda - Essential Irish Rock Quotes
Three decades of words and sound bites to make you smile or smirk, wince or cringe - guaranteed to make you smile.
Rockaganda is a themed trawl through the past 30-odd years of active Irish rock'n'roll mouthing from the great, the good, the bad, the awful, the hopefuls, the contenders and the totally forgotten.
Using his experience as a journalist, his scrapbook (which is now a hardcopy archive), and his contacts book, Tony Clayton-Lea gathers the best of the mutterings of U2, Sinéad O'Connor, Ash, Boyzone, Westlife, Van Morrison, The Pogues, Bob Geldof, and many others.
The result is a perfect dip-in/dip-out book that highlights the cream (some smooth, some clotted) of the Irish music industry on a variety of topics, ranging from sex and drugs and rock'n'roll to politics, success, fame, and celebrity.
