"There's a lot to like in this sweetly nostalgic look at the old glam-rock scene of the 1970s. But what makes this production exceptional is newcomer Lauren Kellegher's portrayal of Poppy Munday, the story's narrator and Vince Cosmos's biggest fan. Kellegher's delivery and northern England accent are so engaging, so personable, and so full of energy that listeners will want to climb inside their own earbuds and give Poppy Munday a great big hug. Now that's good audio." (AUDIOFILE EARPHONES AWARD WINNER)
"An enormously entertaining romp... a treat for fans of Paul Magrs." (RESONANCE FM)
"Fine performances from Rhind-Tutt and Kellegher, along with great production values throughout." (STARBURST MAGAZINE)
If you're a fan of Paul Margs then you'll know what you're in for. If not I'd recommnend if you like slightly surreal stories or wacky sci-fi.
This is a full audio production told mainly from the point of view of a lass from the north making her way in London in 1972.
Not bad ban interesting slant - science fiction with overtones of Ziggy Stardust. Well performed and put together. More would be good!
