With astounding access to all the key players of the time, including members of Green Day, The Offspring, NOFX, Rancid, Bad Religion, Social Distortion, and many others, renowned music writer Ian Winwood will at last give this significant, substantive, and compelling story its due. Punk rock bands were never truly successful or indeed truly famous, and that was that - until it wasn't. Smash! is the story of how the underdogs finally won and forever altered the landscape of mainstream music.

It’s like listening to a robot.
Shame as I really wanted to like it as it’s my era.
It’s how it goes with audio books, so much is in the narration.
Hey-go, on to the next.

Another brilliant selection of sketches from the second series of the phenomenally successful The Fast Show, written by and starring Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson and featuring more hilarity from Ted and Ralph, the 'Suit You, Sir' tailors from hell, Ron Manager, Channel 9, Jessie, Chris the Crafty Cockney, The Christians, and muchos, muchos more!

... that's why you're buying it/bought it.
Comedy writing at it's best, and even better through audio once you know the characters, which you probably do. Enjoy.
