Another day, another VICE SQUAD story!
The Bristol second-wavers are the subject of a new book by the band's former drummer and Vive Le Rock contributor Shane Baldwin.
Last Rockers: The Vice Squad Story includes interviews with fellow Vice Squad members, including both vocalists, Beki and Lia, as well as John Peel, Garry Bushell, Charlie Harper, Alvin Gibbs, members of Vice Squad precursors TV BRAKES and many more friends and associates. It also chronicles the story of Bristol labels Heartbeat and Riot City, with contributions from label boss Simon Edwards.
The book features 12 pages of photos, many previously unpublished, plus a detailed Vice Squad gig list compiled by bassist Mark Hambly.
Due for publication by ACM Retro on 24 April, it's available to pre-order here priced £13.95.
Last Rockers is getting an official launch on Wednesday 27 April at The Thunderbolt, 124 Bath Road, Bristol, featuring a Q&A session and a live set from THE SETBACKS. It kicks off at 7.30 and admission is FREE!
