The book also includes an article by Robin Saunders,
"The Story of Blair Street,Edinburgh" from which this paragraph is extracted:
"...For all those reasons Blair Street was never going to be any kind of Fame Academy.There were those who went on to bigger things,like The Exploited...and better things-our next door neighbour Mike Scott of Another Pretty Face,soon to be Waterboy-in-chief.
Then there were The Freeze,responsible for a couple of classisc early punk singles of the kind which now fetch funny money on eBay from deranged Japanese collectors.
Singer Gordon Sharp's haunting voice would later grace the first This Mortal Coil album,preceding his rise to international sub-culture celebrity of sorts under the name Cindytalk,sadly still without honour in his own country..."
