I think that’s good practice anyway: writing too much, too quickly generally doesn’t produce good results for me. In the longer term, I don’t.

Absolutely superb from start to finish. A historical gem (so far as the punk, etc. music scene is concerned) on every page - usually several. So many memories! Attilla is living proof that you don't have to spend a lifetime serving one machine to get ...more
