2000 Tunes ✓ That escape His dad’s in prison his psycho brother’s only one step away and they’re twisting his melons trying to make him risk his freedom by smuggling drugs It ain’t easy saying no when family and their shady contacts can be bone breakingly persuasive Heaven knows he’s miserable nowThe summer sun does bring one ray of light he secretly admires Samantha a beautiful Welsh girl at work Watching her is like listening to music it strengthens him she’s his wonderwall of true faith He’s happy with. It would be easy to consider this novel a romance it certainly has all the best elements of one The will they won’t they scenarios and the draw of life pulling them apart and together for example But this really doesn’t do the book justice The characters are beautifully layered and flawed certainly not your usual romantic heroes that you would expect There is a wonderful depth to them that the author has created as well as growth through the story which doesn’t culminate until the end I found myself flipping through those last pages to get that satisfying conclusion I hoped was coming It was not disappointing But in eual measure this story is a literary work utilising nostalgia and music from Manchester as a main character in the novel Leading us through the arc of the character driven story with a fresh tune in every chapter I must admit to being nervous about this element when I first saw the book mainly because I worried the book might be stuffy or difficult to follow because of this Instead it only added a beautiful flavour and gave it a personal touch I hadn’t expected Add to this the wonderful readability and you have a story that I highly recommend Download Æ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Karl Drinkwater

After enjoying Cold Fusion 2000 so much I was looking forward to Drinkwater's next book and this didn't disappoint It has everything I have come to expect from Drinkwater's writing Dialogue that nails the metre and manic exuberance of the Manc tongue Perfectly realised rudderless 20 somethings stuck in empty jobs and flats A dash of magic realism in the form of a 'Kathy Burke impersonator in the flesh' The obligatory dig at Stretford 'Crammed by day dead by night Morrisey grew up in Stretford No wonder he was miserable' Manchester music holds this book together as it holds Mark's life together But dig deeper into this seeming love letter to the Manchester music scene and starts to read like an obituary All the good music gone The Hacienda closed The Conti faded captured here before the lights go out for the last time a year laterMark makes endless connections between the music he loves 'It's like a pattern for me It's all for me it's all connected' But these patterns form a web as sticky as that woven by his family that fixes him in the past so he can't see the future He is ' Lost in music' and only when he realises that going over the connections is as futile as repainting double yellow lines on a transient skin of a city that doesn't care can he move on Only then can he live the words of one of the bands he loves 'The past was yours but the future's mine'
