This story follows main protagonist, Smell and a group of friends who have just completed their O-Levels and are on a mission to score a gig for their neophyte band. Little do they know that their quest will land them in trouble with a notorious group of tramps who will stop at nothing to terminate them all? Against the odds Smell and his friends are also up against racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism in an era of upheaval and they must rely not only on the power of hope and determination, they must believe in themselves to rise up to the adversity surrounding them.
Having lived in London for a long time as a teen, I can tell you that Hogan has nailed the setting to perfection as he makes the place a real and integral part of the story, as the setting is woven into the story in much the same way it was once woven into my life and creates a nostalgic atmosphere in which I would like to return. Seriously, if you weren’t a teenager then, by the time you read this story you will wish you had been there.
My Ranking: 5 Stars
While thats going on, the group of friends get serious about their band. The names aren't the greatest, but the quality of music is there. Together they plan to work on getting gigs and doing their thing. Maybe they should taken better caution about falling for other members of the band. Its never that easy and if anything goes south you may not have a band anymore. But don't worry, you've a double murder to think about as well!
The things that went down in the 70s and as a different planet. It was something alright. Crazy, fun, exciting, a new decade to think about. Its a perfect read if you want to try something a little different. Fun and interesting all the way through!
