The third book in the Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity series.
First edition softback. Limited to 100 copies.
"Around seventeen years ago I stumbled upon a semi-hidden world which only truly came alive well after midnight and which existed in the heart of London.
"It was a place and time inhabited by characters who could have tumbled from films of their own making, a sideways glance at a reimagined indefinable past; a world of modern day spivs, foot-high quiffs, lizard skin-lined cars, tooting saxophones, unlicensed speakeasies and sharp suits.
"More than a decade later I began to revisit my old haunts and companions.
"The Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity series of books was the result, which this book is part of; a tribute to this world where I spent some of my youth and also a photographic soundtrack to the imaginary film it inspired and which has played behind my eyes ever since - an attempt to capture my own particular Soho of the mind.
"In this book are some of the people who created the music which accompanied that film and for that I can but thank them.
"The book features:
Gallon Drunk (Terry Edwards, James Johnston, Ian White)
Grinderman (Nick Cave, Martyn P. Casey, Warren Ellis, Jim Sclavunos)
Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Michael J. Sheehy
Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster (Guy Knight)
The Flaming Stars (Max Decharne, Joe Whitney, Huck Whitney, Mark Hosking, Paul Dempsey)
Michael J. Sheehy/Miraculous Mule
Sons & Daughter (Adele Bethele and Scot Patterson).
"And you couldn't ask for a finer suave but crumpled, one over the eight, long after midnight soundtrack than that.
"Thankyou good sirs and madams."
