Yer Blues

eBook (ePub), 190 Pages
(3 Ratings)
Price: $2.25
In a small town in the South Wales valleys, recovering drug-addict and nascent guitar-hero Jase Hopkins decides that the only way he can make something of himself is to finally form that band he's been talking about ever since time. Unfortunately, the best singer within a fifty-mile radius is a washed-up Tom Jones impersonator - his estranged father. A story set in contemporary Britain; its subject matter - relationships, mistakes, and the potency of cheap music. “I've read loads of stories about people wanting to be a rock god - this one begins at the moment our hero gives up on his dream of being the next Bono/Morrissey/Thom Yorke. So the end of most music stories is the start of this one, and it makes for a refreshingly different rock-read. I picked it up to read on the beach, found myself sitting down to finish it off as soon as I got home.” Gary Owen (playwright)

    "Yer Blues" I've read loads of stories about people wanting to be a rock god - this one begins at the moment our hero gives up on his dream of being the next Bono/Morrissey/Thom Yorke.

    "Off Beat but very good" I like this, despite it's opener being far from formulaic, and the mixed fortunes thus far makes me wonder whether these lads will get back on track and be up there supporting Oasis. I liked the balanced welsh vernacular. I didn't realise the Welsh said 'Like' in the same vein as us Scousers, but there you are. You've got me interested enough to know more, so I may buy it in the near future. Well done, have 'Herf a Derk' on me! John Haines
