OOPS UPSIDE YOUR HEad
Nightclubs are closing at such a rate in Britain - down from an estimated 4,200 in 1994 to less than 1,700 in 2017 - that they could soon be a relic of a bygone age.
This book is set in the period from the mid 1970's to the mid 1980's. The country was emerging from a period of grim austerity when it experienced industrial strikes and the imposed 3-day working week. People still needed to enjoy themselves though, and with pubs shutting at 11pm, many found their fun at the nightclub during this golden age of disco.
What was it like to be a part of it all? This is an account of one man's journey through clubland, experiencing all the glamour and hedonism and invariably finding love. But, there was also the harsh life behind the scenes; the daily grind, constant insecurity and the threat of physical violence.
With its tales of love and laughter, tears and tragedy; this is a unique insight into a social and cultural aspect of British life that could soon be gone for ever.

Compelling reading. It has made me laugh and cry in equal measure!
Very movingly written in a way that made the words jump off the page. Couldn't stop until I'd read the whole book!
I curled up with my dogs and found myself moved to tears!
A great account of one man's journey through an industry that is now almost non-existent. It captures succinctly the nomadic and insecure work, the chicanery from your fellow workers and the ever present threat of casual violence. A real good stocking filler'.
