eBook (PDF): $4.82
Download immediately.
Fun At One is the first complete history of comedy on BBC Radio 1. Launched in 1967, the BBC’s pop music service provided an outlet for comics who struggled to get exposure elsewhere, from... More > the humorous disc jockeys of the late sixties and early seventies, through to edgy standup comedians in the late eighties, and more than one whose act defies description even today. Fun At One traces the story of comedy on Radio 1 from its launch to more recent experiments with podcasting and streaming video. Along the way it covers Kenny Everett, Rawlinson End, Adrian Juste, Lenny Henry, Victor Lewis-Smith, The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Lee & Herring’s Fist Of Fun, The Chris Morris Music Show, Mark & Lard, Blue Jam and much more besides, not to mention – of course – Smashie & Nicey. Fun At One is an essential addition to any library, but particularly one that’s had a large shotgun hole blasted in it by Sir Henry Rawlinson.< Less

Higher Than The Sun is the story of four albums released by Creation Records late in 1991. It’s a story that starts with a compilation tape, and ends with a jaw-dropping act of career suicide.... More > In between, someone gets chased by a cow. It’s a story of wild studio experimentation, demolished genre boundaries, audacious licensing deals and photos of french footballers. It’s a story that involves such fondly-remembered and long-forgotten names as House Of Love, Ride, Denim, Flowered Up, Fabulous and Adorable. And takes in Brian Cant, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, and someone playing guitar inside a tent. It’s the story of Screamadelica by Primal Scream, Foxbase Alpha by Saint Etienne, Bandwagonesque by Teenage Fanclub, and Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. And how, long before britpop, Creation Records took on the world and very nearly won…< Less
