Waterstones Says

The indie pop icon and bestselling author of Bedsit Disco Queen and Another Planet gifts the reader with a window into her friendship with Go-Betweens drummer Lindy Morrison in this characteristically witty and affectionate volume.

Signed bookplate edition.

A standard edition is available here.

In 1983, backstage at the Lyceum in London, Tracey Thorn and Lindy Morrison first met. Tracey's music career was just beginning, while Lindy, drummer for The Go-Betweens, was ten years her senior. They became confidantes, comrades and best friends, a relationship cemented by gossip and feminism, books and gigs and rock 'n' roll love affairs.

Morrison - a headstrong heroine blazing her way through a male-dominated industry - came to be a kind of mentor to Thorn. They shared the joy and the struggle of being women in a band, trying to outwit and face down a chauvinist music media.

In My Rock 'n' Roll Friend Thorn takes stock of thirty-seven years of friendship, teasing out the details of connection and affection between two women who seem to be either complete opposites or mirror images of each other. This important book asks what people see, who does the looking, and ultimately who writes women out of - and back into - history.

“Part biography, part memoir, part exploration of female friendship in a male-dominated workplace, always beautifully told”

Lindy Morrison was the drummer in a Brisbane band that were critics' darlings but never quite made it. Tracey Thorn met her in the 1980s, and they formed a friendship that endured across space and time.

“Yeah, course I’m a feminist”

A brilliant and vivid memoir of the friendship between Tracey Thorn of Everything But The Girl and Lindy Morrison of the Go-Betweens, best friends and feminists in an industry dominated by men.

I highly recommend it.
