'Sharp! Flicknife Records and Other Adventures' is an unflinching and honest portrait of Marc Frenchy Gloder's journey from Grenoble ghetto to independent record label success at the heart of London's music scene. Published on 1st September 2016 by New Haven, Marco Frenchy Gloder's memoirs is co-written with Greg Healey and is the result of over two years of extensive interviews. A fascinating and in depth insight into the world of counter culture and alternative music, from the mid 1960s to the early 1990s, it touches on Soul boys, freaks, punks, goth and beyond.A tale of tragedy, excess, adventure and close calls it describes Europe's exploding post war youth movements at first hand.Frenchy gives a unique insight into the festivals, communes and student strikes of the late 1960s, life in the squats of early Punk, and the rise of independent music in the 80s.Be it the street gangs of his youth, who settled their differences with knife fights, or his doomed attempt to smuggle heroin from Iran that ended in imprisonment in an Iranian jail, Frenchy's story has the kind of drama that comes from living life on the edge.As he found his place in the music business with the launch of Flicknife, Frenchy worked with some of the most important names in alternative music. Hawkwind, Alien Sex Fiend , Charlie Harper, Glen Matlock, The Saints, The Barracudas and many more found a home on his label, and he hung out with a host of others, including Lemmy, Jimmy Page and the Velvet Underground's Nico. A truly extraordinary memoir of truly extraordinary times.
