Full of stories both funny, filthy, and remarkably un-PC with interviews from over 50 people and photos from their family albums, this book is personal. It charts the history of post-war Britain with The Colony playing the lead right through to the YBA’s. Sophie Parkin is a writer and artist, and knew many of the artists indeed Molly Parkin her mother gave her membership as an 18th birthday present.
