that's the truth
maybe I wish there was a wee bit more on Japan but Mick's first hand account is priceless & more than I really could have hoped for :-D
& one other thing the book did, which I'm actually glad happened, is that it took David Sylvian off the pedestal I'd always put him on in my mind, don't get me wrong I'm still a huge fan of his work, but it's good to see the human (and obviously flawed) side of him

My only disappointment with the book was it's lack of colour photos and I would have liked to have seen more photos of them when they were first together as a group. Altho I do appreciate having a colour section would have made the book more expensive to produce.

Nah! That was taken at the 'White Jazz Shoe Convention 1978' in Benidorm. David won that year by default - apparently. :lol:

Japanese translated version of Mick's autobiography will be published on 25th July 2011. There are additional parts by Sugizo and T. Masami. (But obviously they are all in Japanese.)
