Présentation de l'éditeur

I was only sixteen when I bought an electric guitar and joined a band. A year later, I formed an all-girl band called the Marine Girls and played gigs, and signed to an indie label, and started releasing records.

Then, for eighteen years, between 1982 and 2000, I was one half of the group Everything But the Girl. In that time, we released nine albums and sold nine million records. We went on countless tours, had hit singles and flop singles, were reviewed and interviewed to within an inch of our lives. I've been in the charts, out of them, back in. I've seen myself described as an indie darling, a middle-of-the-road nobody and a disco diva. I haven't always fitted in, you see, and that's made me face up to the realities of a pop career - there are thrills and wonders to be experienced, yes, but also moments of doubt, mistakes, violent lifestyle changes from luxury to squalor and back again, sometimes within minutes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I did not expect this book to be so good 24 avril 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Certainly one of the best of the autobios by that generation. She has really interesting things to say about the music business, record company people, the music press, the act of recording. There is also a lot of poetry I did not read, but for fans this is certainly of use. Then, the love story with Ben, a look back to the Marine Girls who obviously have an important fan base in grunge musicians, she herself does not rate them as high, I think. Sometimes she just seems to take a step back and waking up in midst of the hype as the girl next door, giving it all a distant look, I especially loved these moments. This is a refreshing book, very personal on one hand, but still a book about the band and the business on the other hand. Highly recommended.

What a pleasure to read Tracey thoughts, joys and constant doubts about what being in the music business means for a woman. Recommended for Everything But The Girls fans but even for readers who do not know Tracey and her former band

Awesome read especially if you are a EBTG fan. Loved to read about what I'd always wondered about. Do you own the cross-pollination artists which EBTG were a part of? How about the Smiths/Style Council/Go-Betweens/Apartments/Prefab Sprout--Tracey knew and knows them all. I'd always sought this "sound" and these are some of the very people with whom EBTG shard their evolutions. I find it odd that Tracey assumes she was an "almost Pop Star". I would say she is an authentic POP star, the best kind. Ones that do not self destruct but find themselves at a place in their careers where they can actually pen a book and let us in on the ride, instead of some sad obit where we have to hope it all meant more than rhymes and harmony. The pace is just right with her lyric placed at chapter's end to give depth to what was happening in their lives at the time. I've been listening to the whole EBTG catalog and even picked up Tracey's Christmas CD to complete it all. I guess the last 30 years of my own life are woven within the notes and tones of EBTG. A life lived along with such gifted artists is a life well lived indeed. I'm grateful to Tracey and Ben--Our Blue Moon Roses.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Look Back 11 mars 2013
Par Christopher A Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am an Everything But the Girl fan as I'm sure most who read this book will be. It begins from Tracey's early childhood and spans her life as she ebbs and flows through adolescence to college and adult life. There are many things I had no idea that were going on in the background especially in the early 1990's. The book is an extremely easy read and is difficult to put down. For anyone who wishes to delve deeper into the history of EBTG or Tracey's life in particular it is a must read.

A thoughtful punk with poetry and poise. What's not to like. Warm and wise. And now we all know where Robert Forster got that cape from. Thanks for sharing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The thorny journey of a pop star princess; Tracey through the looking glass 14 septembre 2013
Par "Belgo Geordie" - Publié sur Amazon.com
This page turner did not satisfy the inner man. Having gone through ten years of having a chronic illness where my musical tastes were defined by an inability to manage being in the same space as two chord thrash or industrial white noise, Tracey Thorn and EBTG were where I camped my ears in moozack. Not Enya and not ambient but a long way from garage punk and the adrenalin spit and mayhem of Tall Dwarves, The Clean and Bill Direen that had been my soundtrack of the early eighties. And even now 2013, listening to EBTG is not a hard ask. I was interested in this auto-bio because I had previously read Ben Watt's very courageous book on managing chronic illness and wondered about the creative and human relationship at the core of EBTG. Ms Thorn writes well and is mostly even handed in her insight. She is modest about her vocal range. However, her writing is not in Alan Bennett territory (as recommended by a reviewer on the cover). It is an enjoyable read and Ms Thorn comes across as likeable and able, more creative than she credits herself as being-her description of her interaction with Massive Attack is a highlight of working together/but passing by each other. The history of post punk feminist to disco diva, mum and solo artist lacks the bite the material seems to imply. Rare flashes of anger light the pages and as a reader I willed her to cut loose and put in a boot or two for emphasis. At heart of this book, and this makes it such a worthwhile work, is one half of a love story. As told here it is a fine achievement and shows both Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt as decent human beings existing through a world where to be so, is rare and a challenge that they achieve without over stating its accomplishment. One star missing is passion...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very well done rock autobio 24 juin 2013
Par Mark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Well, we knew Tracey Thorn could write based on her lyrics. But what she's even better at is telling a story. The era of EBTG is sort of liminal -- on the edge of a couple of things rather than central to the late 20th century. Thorn charts this era so well. For a fan like me, it was great to learn all the background to each album and mutation of EBTG's sound. And to hear about Thorn's development as a person and and artist. And she doesn't show us only her best profile. You get a sense of Thorn as a articulate and exacting artist -- who can be a little self-centered at times, and on rare occasion, a bit whiney. Most musical artists are guilty of some narcissism -- their medium and source is themselves, rather than say a painter who uses paint and canvas as media and (usually but not always) paints something other than herself. So, the pop star's self-regard is forgivable, especially since such great, great music, such great art has resulted.
