'Hilarious warts-and-all story of a Britpop band whose big ambitions did not meet their talents' Camden New Journal
'All the fun of youthful dreams and the poignancy of disappointment - plus a remarkable A-list cameo. Magnificent.' Phil Harrison Time Out / Guardian
It's 1992 and Horace dreams of becoming a rockstar with his band the Pointy Birds. The only problem is that his day-job (mis)filing vinyl in a Soho record store is stealing all his time and energy, plus rival bands like Suede, Blur, Pulp and Radiohead are moving on to bigger and better things. But then someone called Ricky offers his services as a band manager and at last the dream can start.
In part 2 of 4 we rewind to the late eighties. Horace has arrived in London to study politics but he has other plans. He is going to form a band. And three years as a student gives him the perfect time and opportunity to find some band members, grow his hair and enjoy the inevitable world domination to follow.
Anoint My Head is the tale of a band who didn't become rich, or famous but had a manager who did. It is also the story of a musical era, and documents the rise of some of the biggest British Britpop bands of the nineties, plus a comedian who went on to write quite a successful sitcom about a paper merchants in Slough.
A coming-of-age story about pursuing your dreams and what happens when reality gets in the way. Perfect for fans of Caitlin Moran, Nicky Hornby & Ricky Gervais.
