A Times, Rough Trade and Uncut Book of the Year, shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize 2015.
Original Rockers is a clear-eyed yet romantic account of the several years that Richard King spent working behind the counter at Bristol's Revolver Records -- a business run from the heart rather than the head. King brings that lost environment back to life -- the sounds, the smells and the people -- along with a vivid sense of how it feels to discover taste-shaping records and the artists who created them for the first time. Original Rockers evokes a golden moment in British cultural history, and celebrates the magical abandon that music offers us.
