Waterstones Says

Combining the delightfully idiosyncratic writings of the inimitable Tom Hibbert with reflections from friends and colleagues, Phew, Eh Readers? is an endlessly entertaining selection of some of the most singular interviews you will ever read.

Idiosyncratic.

Iconoclastic.

Acerbic.

Hilarious.

The influence of Tom Hibbert's music writing across print, radio, TV and podcasts is incomparable. From his genre-defining work at Smash Hits to his 'Who the Hell ... ?' profiles for Q magazine and beyond, this book brings together many of Hibbert's funniest writings.

Compiled by Barney Hoskyns and Jasper Murison-Bowie at Rock's Backpages, the archive of music journalism, Phew, Eh Readers? showcases some of Hibbert's greatest pieces. Presented thematically and chronologically, they highlight his marvellously eccentric perspective on life and popular culture.
