Richard King’s ‘Original Rockers’ Due Out In Paperback
Richard King, author of 'How Soon is Now' is having his latest work 'Original Rockers' re-issued in paperback with new artwork in July. His account of the several years he spent working in a Bristol independent record shop in the early 90s, it blends memoir and elegiac music writing on the likes of Captain Beefheart, CAN, Julian Cope, roots reggae and Massive Attack.
