Flashing through the London underground music scene of the late seventies Punk Rock was the ultimate anti-movement, anti-fashion, anti-rock, anti- establishment. Its bands consisted of players untrained in music, looking to explode the heavy over produced rock of the previous generation stripping music down to its core. The music was banned from every venue and club in the United Kingdom from fear that it may dissolve the remains of Unity in the fragile political back drop of the time. The ROXY Club stood alone in its wish to promote this music against all odds, it survived just 100 nights but during its short reign cut through the pomp and self-satisfied operators of the music business who finally saw they had no clothes. This very personal book from the diaries and memories of this infamous club by Andrew Czezowski and his lifelong partner Susan Carrington. How it all came about, looking out from the center of the maelstrom at the impact they were having during the most crucial 100 nights in PUNK rock music. 


After The ROXY and The VOID fiasco, Andrew Czezowski and Susan Carrington had almost learnt their lesson and went on to personally own and operate one of the most successful clubs in the UK, The FRIDGE in London, Brixton. With a capacity of 2,000, it dominated and drove the club scene through the Eighties and Nineties, two decades of more Madness and Mayhem, but this time with great success. They are now writing a few books (one book will not be enough) about this even crazier time.


REVIEW:
A book for punk lovers, like me!
Most of my favorite bands got their start at The Roxy. It was a night club in the late 70's that didn't last very long, but in that time it was magic!
Bands like The Clash, The Lurkers, Siouxie and the Banshees, all played in this club. For me, learning more about the owners, Susan and Andrew was fascinating. I also loved the detailed timeline of the club. Most of this stuff I had no idea about.
If you love punk like I do, get this book. You will be hooked from cover to cover!

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one.
