Bedsit Disco Queen
The Sunday Times top ten bestselling memoir of Tracey Thorn's 30-year pop career with Marine Girls and Everything But The Girl, and her collaborations with Paul Weller, Massive Attack and Todd Terry. A Radio 4 Book of the Week in March 2013.
I was only sixteen when I bought an electric guitar and joined a band. A year later, I formed an all-girl band called the Marine Girls and played gigs, and signed to an indie label, and started releasing records.
Then, for eighteen years, between 1982 and 2000, I was one half of the group Everything But the Girl. In that time, we released nine albums and sold nine million records. We went on countless tours, had hit singles and flop singles, were reviewed and interviewed to within an inch of our lives. I've been in the charts, out of them, back in. I've seen myself described as an indie darling, a middle-of-the-road nobody and a disco diva. I haven't always fitted in, you see, and that's made me face up to the realities of a pop career - there are thrills and wonders to be experienced, yes, but also moments of doubt, mistakes, violent lifestyle changes from luxury to squalor and back again, sometimes within minutes.

A Bedside Book For Cavers
Anyone who has passed the age of seventy needs to have a positive attitude to life in order to enjoy it. This book explains how 'older cavers' develop and maintain this attitude, as well as taking an active interest in their chosen sport. There is something here for everyone, not just the cavers and non-caving pensioners, but for the younger folk, who will, one day, hopefully, experience life as 'older folk'. The book is filled with amusing and interesting articles for fire-side, or bed-time reading. The philosophies embedded in the text may also stimulate the thoughts of the perceptive reader. John Gillett is an active caver who belongs to several UK caving clubs. He has a passionate belief in the societal benefits of education and has played an active part in developing and implementing ideas on this subject internationally. He is married, with one daughter and two grand-children. He lives in Gawsworth, Cheshire.
