Waterstones Scottish Book of the Month for January

Ross Raymond and Johnny McLaughlin are two fanboys dedicated to the Airdrie post-punk scene of the early '80s - the glory years - when anything and everything seemed possible.

Looking back on that time - the people, the bands, the underground legends - they piece together a story which has at its core Memorial Device, the greatest band you've never heard of.

Featuring a cast of misfits, artists, drop-outs, small-town visionaries and musicians, This Is Memorial Device is a dark, witty novel depicting a moment where art and the demands it makes are as serious as life itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS

" Many of the chapters would work as brilliant standalone short stories. Taken together, they add up to one of the most affecting and aphoristic novels of recent years." - The Guardian

"Dark, edgy and haunting." - The Scottish Mail on Sunday
