After a cracking launch of Do It Yourself: A History of Music in Medway by Stephen H. Morris, the press has now caught on to the book. Kent on Sunday has a two-page spread, which you can read in full here. Medway Messenger describes it as a ‘brilliant new book’ and more coverage is promised in the coming week. Speaking of the launch, a couple of Cultured Llama editors were seen playing guitar and singing into a mic during Stuart Turner’s set, and a certain Peter Cook, author of Punk Rock People Management also played. Unfortunately, we were so busy selling books and having a good time that we forgot to take any pictures. So you’ll just have to imagine it.

Fiona Sinclair reviews In Margate by Lunchtime by Maggie Harris for London Grip. Here is some of what Fiona has to say:
This is a collection of short stories steeped in place, that of the Isle of Thanet. It is clear that Harris although hailing from Guyana, made her home there for a substantial period of time and got to know not only the landscape but also the myth and mysteries of the area. Each narrative is set in a different part culminating in ‘A Mermaid’s Tale’ that is in effect a whirl wind guided tour of the area. As such I think the subject matter will chime well with those who have memories of holidays and daytrips, who have heard of it by reputation and of course locals like me who like to spot the land marks.
