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.

'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
