In 1986, Sylvia Patterson boarded a train to London armed with a tea-chest full of vinyl records, a peroxide quiff and a dream: to write about music, forever. She got her wish. Even if it left her skint, almost cost her a limb and drove her so mad she once blubbed on a man named “Mushroom” (out of Massive Attack) because he couldn’t tell her the meaning of life itself.
I’m Not with the Band is a fascinating and brutally honest memoir, a rollicking life adventure told with poignancy and wit.
Sylvia Patterson is one of pop journalism’s best-known voices. She joined Smash Hits as Staff Writer aged 20 during its mid-late 80s peak when it sold a million copies a fortnight. She was also a writer for NME, The Face, Guardian Guide, The Observer, Sunday Times, Interview, The Word, Q and Glamour. She’s also the only writer to have penned sleeve-notes to the greatest hits of both Take That and Oasis. Because that’s how she rolls (with it).
Sylvia Patterson will be reading from I’m Not with the Band and also in discussion with Dave Windass.
