ELVIS DIED FOR SOMEBODY'S SINS BUT NOT MINE

“Just in time for the Aztec calendar to run out comes this collection of Mick Farren’s primal ‘up against the wall, motherfucker’ style of rock and roll polemics. One man’s literary life spent railing against the machine lives between these covers. The hidden history of the twentieth century and beyond. He was there and you weren’t. Listen up, children!"
Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds.net

“Story or essay, poem or rock song, they all carry the same fierce engagement which has never left this determinedly self-invented individualist whether arguing his case at the Old Bailey or strutting his stuff on stage at London’s Roundhouse. Read him and rage.”
Michael Moorcock

“Farren mocks them now, as he mocked them then. He was always a bit cross about something, and he relished the punks, could even be said to have heralded that revolution too (he’s had Germaine Greer and Julie Burchill, or rather they had him), even if Johnny Rotten teased him about his flares. This is marvelous stuff, superbly told, and it will make you want to go out and find a record by the Deviants.”
The Guardian

“Mick Farren has had a long illustrious career as an infamous editor, journalist and English rock star…(He) has important points to make about the times we live in.”
New York Paper

“Mick Farren’s writing is pointed, truthful, amazingly funny.”
Village View

“Farren is a true creator.”
New Times

“Farren’s fertile imagination has a snaggletoothed bite all if its own.”
NME

“Mick Farren has been one of the planet's prime cultural warriors since the late Sixties.”
Tim (Napalm) Stegall

“Farren has a crazy, old school outlaw energy that will not be denied.”
BB Gun

FROM THE FOREWORD & PREFACE

“Part biker, part urban guerilla… [Mick Farren] absolutely looked like a rock star, though whether he sounded like one is highly debatable.” 
Charles Shaar Murray

“‘And how is that nice friend of yours? The one with the robots?’…”
Felix Dennis
