Oh yeah. Sylvia’s book is great. Mingus’s autobiography is something else, too.

It's great book. I used to know Bill Brewster back in the day, he also worked on the early versions of WSC.

I was recommended Redemption Song about Joe Strummer yesterday. Anyone read it?

I enjoyed Mötley Crüe's The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band when it came out but suspect I would feel a bit icky reading it now.
I have Black Vinyl, White Powder - are these two different books, or did I get a special version for by music execs?

Ha! No - it is my memory failing me between bookshelf and laptop. Perhaps I was thinking of that not very good Bowie record?

I dunno if I'm more impressed that you used to know Brewster or that he was part of When Saturday Comes.

Meet Me In The Bathroom, about the New York music scene in the early 00's was really good.
Mike Skinner's autobiography is a favourite, but I struggled a bit with the audiobook version (even though I read the book twice).
How Not To Run a Night, Peter Hook. About the Hacienda club in Manchesters.
Sylvia Patterson was good too. I'm sure there are a few more but those were the ones that immediately stuck out.

I believe my company makes a fleeting appearance in that book, are Vampire Weekend in it?
We also feature more extensively in Dean Wareham's Black Postcards, which is well worth a read, Dean is a genuinely talented writer.
