'Speaks from the centure of pop's beating heart.' DYLAN JONES

'Fascinating.' NEW YORK TIMES

'A controversial and honest account.' NME

'Music journalism at its best.' THE WORD



A story of money, sex, stardom, screaming fans and forgotten ideals, Like Punk Never Happened is Dave Rimmer's witty, authoritative, fast-moving and provocative insider account of the roller-coaster ride that was Boy George & Culture Club and the new '80s pop.



'Rimmer is among the most entertaining writers ever to pen a rock book.'

ROCK AND ROLL CONFIDENTIAL



'The funniest, smartest book I know about the connections between pop glitter and real-life human passion, the erotics of fandom, or the dirty details.'

ROB SHEFFIELD, author of Talking to Girls about Duran Duran
