    EBOOK Fried Justified Having spent 30 years in the trenches of the music industry and lovingappreciating most of the acts Houghton represented during his PR career I relished every word of this book It was particularly gratifying to see some of the eccentric artists I grew up admiring Julian Cope in particular portrayed in loving detail rather than just as cartoon characters Houghton clearly loves music that matters and the people who make it and that passion im

    EBOOK Fried Justified The problem with self effacing publicists is that I get to the end of this book and I still haven't a clue what Mick Houghton actually did for his clients Some decent stories and I enjoy a nostalgia trip back to some of my most favourite artists but a bit lacklustre nonetheless

SUMMARY Fried Justified READ & DOWNLOAD º VIVETUMUSICA.CO Ú Mick Houghton Mick Houghton Ú 1 CHARACTERS We arrived in a fleet of white stretch limos at a clearing in a wood near Woking Here the K Foundation was exhibiting a million pounds in cash while Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty circled the perimeter in two orange Saracen armoured vehicles blasting out Abba's 'Money Money Money' The list of bands and artists Mick Houghton worked with in an illustrious career in the music business reads like a Who's Who of some of the greatest most influential and downright dysfunctional cult groups of the post punk era and beyond Ramones Talk. In much the same way that too good an intro song or film can poleaxe the gig it s meant to be setting up so it s entirely possible to sink a book with too good an introduction Bill Drummond does the foreword here talking in his usual wry prophetic manner about secret histories and occult symmetries the sort of thing you expect a hare would tell you if it deigned to talk setting up something special And then his former publicist Chris Houghton takes over for the book proper and it s very much the voice you d expect from a guy who worked in the music industry and liked pub rock but thought punk was a bit much One can t prove a negative and most books have a dull sentence somewhere but I m honestly not uoting selectively when I point at plodding prose like In 1979 there was no doubting that the extreme work ethic and spirit of adventure that had characterised Talking Heads for the last eighteen months was paying off in spades On top of which I wouldn t like to state categorically that I ve never liked a piece of music writing which refers to sides but it certainly doesn t help The abiding impression is of an affable chap who s met everyone the Ramones Tom Waits the Undertones and still come out of it all without a decent anecdote about any of them Certainly one wouldn t wish him any ill if he can be blokey in places he was suitably unimpressed by the fellow who nicked a pair of Suzi uatro s knickers And he seems to have done good work selling these acts many of whom can t have been easy to pitch at the time But in terms of selling his own story now no What makes it frustrating is that I went to such lengths to get this Granted it s not as if I had to pluck the withered scroll from a liche s hand but the first time I reserved it from the library some swine stole it from the shelf and then when I re reserved it I was down to fourth in the ueue And if you think that s not much of a story well try reading the first hundred pages of thisIn short I was right on the edge of bailing out when Houghton s story reaches the point where he goes freelance and then gets tangled up with Drummond and his Zoo And suddenly it s a whole other book Not one to compare with Copey or Drummond s account of the same events sure but a deserving companion piece It still has some skimmable stretches as when Houghton falls in with Creation he s less impressed by their bullshit than most were in the eighties and nineties but still ends up giving a gaggle of ornery pricks far attention than they deserve The story of the rise of the JAMs is hampered by Houghton fundamentally being on a different wavelength Bill and Jimmy are their own worst enemies They take what they do very seriously but don t behave in that way this is not their problem this is their genius but I m deep enough in the mire of their mythology that I find the extra fragments here fascinating all the same Similarly I imagine fans of the likes of Birdland the Wedding Present and Cud less written about these days well except for that curious Black Crown strip might enjoy even their fairly cursory appearances And if nothing else when people have always been so happy to throw around accusations of hype when discussing pop it s good to read a hypeman s own account and learn that even he doesn t really know why it worked so much better for some acts than others
