I'd need a hardcopy whether it be paperback or hardcover to update from my original.
A book you can hold in your hand can be read outside under sunlight or beside a
lantern/candle during a power blackout.
Relying on computers for everything is not a smart thing.

Hurrah!

Never had the spare money when it first came out.

Now all I need is a reissue of Spaced Out In London! :D

I have pre-ordered the Kindle edition (I have too many books as well as too many CDs!) looking forward to this! I have been waiting years.

Hmmm, after hearing Carol Clerk's book was coming out in a new edition, I sold the previous volume (which apparently got "lost in the post") but then it never manifested and the original shot up in price, and poor Carol passed too.

I'll wait to see if this actually exists - similar issues happened to Ian's Festivilized book he co-wrote with Bridget Wishart

The original 'Festivalized' didn't appear from the contracted publisher, it's true due to publisher difficulties. But the digital edition that I produced did appear on time last year, and the Gonzo print edition came out in January, just a few weeks later than planned.

At the moment, only the digital edition is scheduled for a firm date, but should be some print news soon.

Given I'm mentioning this on the band's own forum, must as always note that it is an unofficial book (as indeed was Carol's).

Because some were asking about a hard copy of the new edition, it's available now via Amazon sites... still working on non-Amazon distribution.

Again, because I'm mentioning on the official forum, must note that this book, though it does contain up to date interviews with current band members, is an unauthorised biography.
