Nell’s welcomes The Hollywood Brats … ‘History is told by the victors, but Andrew Matheson’s tale of rock and roll failure is much more compelling than any tired celebrity narrative. Lurid, stupid, crazed and quixotic, the primal adolescent silliness and arrogance of great pop music runs through every page.’ – Stuart Maconie

‘Flagrant, addled, highly competitive, the Hollywood Brats predicted Punk in the moribund early seventies. Andrew Matheson’s concise, hilarious memoir tells the pleasure and pain of being an unheralded pioneer.’ – Jon Savage, author of England’s Dreaming

‘The Hollywood Brats are a folk legend; they were doing what they were doing before anybody. This is one of the great rock’n’roll hard luck stories, by turns shocking and hilarious, and Andrew Matheson has a terrific eye for comic detail.’ – Bob Stanley author of Yeah, Yeah, Yeah: the Story of Modern Pop

‘The greatest rock and roll story you’ve never heard: the Hollywood Brats hit the early 70s like a spaceship landing in Victorian London. Matheson’s book is as lurid and compelling as the band themselves.’ –John Niven, author of Kill Your Friends
