'A remarkable insight into the pitfalls of the music industry - I'd go so far as to say it's essential reading for any young musician in Scotland thinking about trying to make a go of it - not least for the rude awakening it may offer before their dreams are shattered. But it also shows how success can be achieved against seemingly insurmountable odds'* Scotsman *
'A great read for any up and coming artist determined to make a go of it'* Scots Magazine *
'DJ turned author Galloway does a superb job of documenting the lives of these artists, misfits and 'heads', not least because he is a Fife lad himself'* Mojo *
