Présentation de l'éditeur

Cider with Roadies is the true story of a boy's obsessive relationship with pop. A life lived through music from Stuart's audience with the Beatles (aged 3); his confessions as a pubescent prog rocker; a youthful gymnastic dalliance with northern soul; the radical effects of punk on his politics, homework and trouser dimensions; playing in crap bands and failing to impress girls; writing for the NME by accident; living the sex, drugs (chiefly lager in a plastic glass) and rock and roll lifestyle; discovering the tawdry truth behind the glamour and knowing when to ditch it all for what really matters.

From Stuart's four minutes in a leisure centre with MC Hammer to four days in a small van with Napalm Death it's a life-affirming journey through the land where ordinary life and pop come together to make music.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun read 17 octobre 2010
Par Lovblad - Publié sur
Stuart Maconie was one of the great writers for the NME in its best or second best era. While it is true that he was maybe not such a persona as Nick Kent or Paul Morley, he was on the staff of this journalin some of its more exciting years: the post-punk years and he managed to stay along for a while. This book that is really nice to read is made up of a few sections: at first he explains his musical heritage and how he became a music lover. Then in the last third of the bok he manages to give an excellent account of his years at the NME. It is somewhat unfortunate that this part of the book is not the longest since it is the most interesting one; this is also a shame because it is during that time that Stuart Maconie was writing some of the most exciting rock journalism available. What is also interesting to notice is that here one has a music journalist who is actually a music fan and he does not really spend hours writing about himself (even if some of the best rock journalism has been exactly that: people witing not about the music but themselves). So overall it is a fun read and I got it very cheaply at Glasgow airport.

This is a delightful memoir – the story of Stuart Maconie’s love affair with music. It takes us from his first concert at the age of three (The Beatles, which is unbeatable by any standards), through Northern Soul, progressive Rock, the arrival of Punk Rock, a short lived attempt at playing in a band and his later career as a rock journalist. Maconie is always humorous and slightly self mocking, but his enthusiasm is unfeigned and always honest. This will make you dig out obscure albums as well as listen to old favourites with fresh interest. All music lovers will enjoy this and, as an added bonus, Maconie is charming and excellent company, who will make you laugh out loud. A joy to read – but why it is not available on kindle I have no idea. It is surely deserving of re-release. However, for now, dig out a paperback copy and discover the highs and lows of fandom and working for the NME.

I'm not from the UK, but it's still great to experience the words of a great music journalists in a loving bildungsroman-like collection of essays portraying the essayist as a young man, growing up in Wigan (I used to know nothing about Wigan, but now at least I have the Maconie version of it!!), the joys of being in a band, of discovering the Smiths (I can relate to that... sorta... I did discover them... but didn't really fall in love with them...). And, even knowing that I probably didn't get half of his jokes, the writing is indeed very wry and very funny. Maconie is truly the master of the wry and irreverent comparison!

He doesn't get off to a good start, unfortunately, going on and on about how he was such a precocious three-year-old that he managed to convince his mom to take him to see the Beatles (hmmmm... yeah... so what...), but then gets into interesting tales of how he learned how to play guitar, how he joined bands, how he hung out in school... how he got into music journalism... a factory worker... a student... a teacher... discovering prog rock (Gentle Giant!!), discovering punk, discovering the Clash, discovering the Smiths... having a go at music journalism... hanging out with INXS... hanging out with Napalm Death. Best story in the book: hanging out with Motorhead!! There's also a fantastic story about hanging out with Mark E Smith of The Fall. Great!! Some of the chapters are a bit weak, but most aren't, and here he's already miles ahead of Chuck Klosterman. Weird how he stalked Elvis Costello's dad, though!!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great title - even better book 29 juillet 2004

Never heard of this man before (sorry, old person)but one of the best reads of my year.

Very, very funny - many 'laugh out loud' moments (and I'm not a 'laugh out loud' type - more of a 'swear out loud' type).

Also - makes you want to listen again to some music and search out other things you haven't heard yet but suspect you may really enjoy.

Add to this some sharp social observation and sociological insight (you don't have to be Northern but it helps)and you have a real cracker on your hands.

I loved this book so much I bought it for my daughter who loved it too. Stuart Maconie writes with wit and knowledge. It is maybe not for someone with no interest in alternative music but it is very well written never the less.
