This week, I have been reading A NEW DAY YESTERDAY: UK PROGRESSIVE ROCK & THE 1970s. It had been on my reading list for a while, so thought I would take it for a spin.
I must say, I am glad I did. I’m 50% of the way through it and really enjoying it. A lot of it (so far) is old news or stuff I’m already very familiar with, but there are some amazing nuggets of information in there which I found illuminating.
Mike writes with authority and has a nice turn of phrase which makes the book – the subject matter of which could be quite droll – a hugely enjoyable experience.
And it has got me listening to Henry Cow again!
