    I was way too young the first time around to enjoy the music of this time but have become a massive fan of all the bands featured in this book and more since. That's what brought me to it but I stuck with it because it's a really funny and slightly sordid story. It reminds me of Irvine Welsh in a way, how it really embraces the filth of a generation mashed on drugs and loved-up to music. Bands like Oasis and Blur make me sad that I didn't experience that time myself but this book makes me even sadder that I didn't get the chance to take the lads on at their own game. I'll be looking out for more from Nick Amies in future.

    This is a great book not only as an entertaining slab of irreverent fiction but also as a document of one of the most exciting and excessive musical eras of the last 30 years. Not only that, it nails the bravado of the Lad Culture phenomenon but looks behind the bad behaviour to show the vulnerability of those struggling with their identities at a time when popular culture is telling you who you should be and how to act. Essentially, this is a dirty, funny, honest (and hopefully well disguised) memoir of a time when girls and guys were out for all they could get and were doing so to a soundtrack of some of the best British music in a generation. Profane and uncomfortable at times, She's Electric cleverly mirrors the past with the present to show that sometimes it's harder to move on when you've had the best time of your life. Telling the stories of the friends who have tried to move on from their Britpop years by delving back into their hedonistic past to explain their weaknesses and... More > doubts makes for an interesting narrative. The musical side of this book made me dig out all those mid-90s classics again and relive my own glory days. The author obviously lived and breathed the scene and the authenticity shines through. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I'll keep my eyes peeled for future releases.< Less
