Ustrious career in the music business reads like a Who's Who of some of the greatest most influential and downright dysfunctional cult groups of the post punk era and beyond Ramones Talking Heads The Undertones The Jesus and Mary Chain Felt Sonic Youth The Wedding Present Spiritualized and Elastica among them Often judiciously or unintentionally sidestepping the major trends in music baggy grunge and Britpop his reputation for attracting outsiders led to him working with artists as disparate as Sun Ra Andrew Oldham Ken Kesey Bert Jansch Stereolab Mercury Rev and Gorky's Zygotic MynciBut the three acts Mick is most clo.

    Fried Justified review ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Fried JustifiedHaving spent 30 years in the trenches of the music industry and lovingappreciating most of the acts Houghton represented during his PR career I relished every word of this book It was particularly gratifying to see some of the eccentric artists I grew up admiring Julian Cope in particular portrayed in loving detail rather than just as cartoon ch

    Fried Justified review ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Fried JustifiedThe one lasting aspect of Mick Houghton’s excellent FRIED AND JUSTIFIED is just the sheer volume of incredible and groundbreaking artists and groups he has worked with in a career spanning decades contributing to the output and legacy of the likes of The Ramones The KLF Echo and the Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes to name a few Because if that doesn’t already amaze you here are some Elastica Sonic Youth The Jesus and Mary Chain Spiritualized The Undertones and Talking Heads A veritable rock and roll hall of fame line up so the fact that there are so many acts here that I love alone is incredibly mouth watering And Houghton is no mere bystander at all Publicist manager record executive he has done in the industry than most could even imagine Unprecedented access fascinating behind the scenes stories and he writes with a clever candour and antagonistic approach Which I’m sure he needed to have to even survive around the likes of those above Really really great book

    Fried Justified review ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Fried JustifiedMick Houghton is a PR person who seems to share some of my taste in music On top of that he's got stories to tell and knows how to put words next to each other to tell them The Mary Chain Wedding Present The Bunnymen Ramones Sonic Youth Julian Cope The KLF Houghton has worked his magic for all of them and has a wry anecdote about all of the above and One of those books that is impossible to put down once you start reading it

    Fried Justified review ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Fried JustifiedThe problem with self effacing publicists is that I get to the end of this book and I still haven't a clue what Mick Houghton actually did for his clients Some decent stories and I enjoy a nostalgia trip back to some of my most favourite artists but a bit lacklustre nonetheless
