I may or may not come as a surprise, but I have spent the last five months writing a book on the History of The Alternative Scene in North Wales. From the rudimentary beginnings of The Alarm to the present day bands and people.

What began as an idea to simply collate the information I have at hand on the link2wales website has become a mammoth task of interviewing and emailing countless people involved in the scene. Some have ignored my requests, but most have been more than helpful; excellent in fact, with a whole host of stories that’ll make you laugh, gasp and read in disbelief.
It was a difficult decision to go ahead with the book – one publisher had offered me a far better deal if I had included the whole of Wales; but it was a deal not worth giving up work for, which is what I would have had to have done to take on such a task. Plus North and South Wales may as well be on opposite sides of the world. So North Wales it is – I’ll probably be lucky to sell 500 copies, but it is something I’ve always wanted to do, something I’ve held close to my heart and something you’ll really enjoy reading – when it eventually comes out…
If anyone has an idea for a title – please let me know…
