'Super-evocative, Proustian and a wonderful walk down memory lane.' Mark Bowen Wichita Recordings
˜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.Â But then someone called Ricky offers his services as a band manager and at last the dream can start.
In part three, Horace has graduated from college and the band is ready to rock, but without a student grant how he is going to pay the rent? A full-time job is not an option. Maybe a foray into stand-up comedy can bring in some bacon and help the band too.
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.
