The Statement in the Review by DFFS WJP
Reviewer: Fizle (Hackney, London)
"It's hard to believe that Ian Dury had this in mind when he wrote the words Sex Drugs & Rock & Roll but this, I believe IS the true story. The truth behind the facade behind the facade. Steve Redman in his self-conscious stream of consciousness (if that's possible) tells the truth about what went on. Down there on Portobello Road, behind the trendy stalls & middle-class shoppers was the seedy underworld at the centre of which the author pivots like a demented & tooled-up drugged-up dervish. And he is the real deal. There is morality too as the book appears to be a catharsis, shocking & outrageous in its expression. It's the tale of a survivor told with self-deprecation, humour & not an ounce of grammar!"
One Thing Though ... This is a Terrific Read & is based on Steve (Speedmachine) Redman's Memories which were of course under the effects of 'Mind Altering Substances' so in that respect some memories are suitably 'altered'. Steve, Bless Him has the 'memory' that Tookie choked on a Cherry Stone & assumed it was from a bag of Cherries he'd taken over. But Tookie choked on a Cocktail Cherry so Steve you're 'off' that particular 'hook' :-)
"Not for the young or those of a sensitive nature!" is certainly spot on!
But then if you're of a Sensitive Nature
What on fuck are you doing here anyway???
