Synopsis

The most authoritative, intelligent, diligently researched and unpretentious analysis of the British pop scene yet written' Sunday Telegraph



Black Vinyl White Powder charts the amazing fifty year history of the British music business in unparalleled scale and detail. As a key player across the decades, Napier-Bell - who discovered Marc Bolan and managed amongst others The Yardbirds and Wham! - uses his wealth of contacts and extraordinary personal experiences to tell the story of an industry that is like no other. Where bad behaviour is not only tolerated but encouraged, where drugs are sometimes as important as talent, where artists are pushed to their physical and mental limits in the name of profit and ego.



'The Greatest Ever Book Written about English Pop-Breathtakingly Brilliant' Julie Burchill



'The cold print equivalent of a sparkling evening with a world-class raconteur.' Charles Shaar Murray, Independent



Bitchy, glib, fun and shrewd' Daily Telegraph
