'Spitting & Screaming: The Story of The London Pub Rock Scene & 70s British Punk' is rather a grand title. Does it over promise? Who is this guy Neil Saint who calls himself The Saint podcasting and broadcasting his RETROPOPIC RADIO show? If you think that folks then you're wrong... The book represents a thorough investigation of the London Pub Rock and British Punk scene in the seventies from over 50 interviews with the participants themselves. Amongst others the author has spoken to...Sally Jane Delaney, daughter of Tally Ho publican Lillian Delaney, shares memories of listening to the birth of London Pub Rock as 'Eggs Over Easy' play a residency at her home, Steve Conolly, known as Roadent, conveys his direct knowledge of the early punk scene roadying for The Pistols and The Clash, Charlie Harper, founder member of The UK Subs, recounts the very earliest days of The Roxy as punk goes overground in 77 after The Grundy interview and Andrew Lauder, a player in the music scene, informs you how much he disliked The Stranglers before falling in love with them and signing them to UA. Spanning that early to late seventies the book is a must read for the music lover!
