Auteur: Whalley, Boff
Clever, funny and irreverent, Footnote is Chumbawamba member Boff Whalley's story of growing up amidst the redbrick cliches of small-town Lancashire, reconciling Mormonism and punk rock, industrial courtesy and political insurrection. Then he finds a guitar, anarchism and art terrorism, and after years of earnest, determined slogging, his band makes it really really big. Footnote is not another plodding rock memoir but a compassionate, critical and sometimes cynical account of a life steeped in pop culture, lower division football and putting the world to rights.
