I wasn't too sure what to expect but eagerly awaited my copy.

I am not from Leeds but let's say I have an affiliation to the city.

My copy arrived today. What a brilliant book. It is fascinating, informative and witty.

Anyone with an interest in the city of Leeds will appreciate this book.

Methinks that The Bastard Grind will have to get a copy.

Do you want a link or something posted on the LeedsMad site?

Somehow or other I became a moderator on there, so I'm quasi-able to plug stuff - and I'd be more than happy to do so in this instance.

That'd be brilliant Grind. I want to spread it far and wide.

Good luck tonight Mick, not that you will need it.  Hoping to see you at W's for the signing.

Cheers NOC, that'd be good.

Weird one about who one is and that. Was saying to an old, old mate, 'Yeh but your fear is that you're sat in a corner on your own, and no-one comes up, so you're just sat there looking sad all day.'

She responded, 'Shut up Mick, like you'd do that. If that happened, you'd be walking around the shop, showing the book to shoppers, blagging, chatting and telling them you're signing upstairs.....I know you.'

Once she said it I thought, Brilliant idea, that's what I'll do. But strange, in my head sad, lad sat in corner. In her head confident salesman approaching strangers. Int identity weird?

If she hadn't said anything the idea of being out going would never have crossed my mind.

To clarify - I don't think Burns was specifically addressing you.

Can I be the first to say this is fucking brilliant.

*you can use that quote Mick*

Had a quick look through and laughed out loud at least three times, I'll give it a proper read over next few days.

i've got as far as C now. Impressed with your knowledge of Molecular Biology and X-Ray Spectrography, Mick.

Bit disappointed that neither Fat Man's Agony nor Stevie and the Hormones made it into the Leeds bands.

 I can safely say that one word Mick got right throughout was 'Leeds'.
