Out 25 Apr 2019

The image of Jordan in her white shards of beehive and Mondrian make-up is one of the most iconic in pop history. But nobody knows what was really going on behind those watchful eyes when Anarchy hit the UK.  With commentary from key players including Vivienne Westwood, Paul Cook, Marco Pirroni, Holly Johnson and her partner behind the SEX/Seditionaries counter Michael Collins plus a wealth of never-before-seen images from Simon Barker, Sheila Rock and Harri Peccinotti, Jordan finally reveals her outrageous life story

PETE SHELLEY
17 April 1955 - 6 December 2018
Growing up on the outskirts of Manchester, the Buzzcocks were the local heroes of all of us at school with a punk rock leaning. I asked for and received Love Bites on Christmas Day 1978. I never saw them live until the reunion gig at Manchester Apollo in 1989 - what an amazing event that was. Around the same time, the CD box set Product was released and set the standard for retrospective re-releases in the new CD age and re-acquainted many of us with our dusty old vinyl, reminding us of how magnificent they were. We hadn't imagined it. Thankfully the reconvened Buzzcocks continued to make magnificent albums (the latest The Way is a fabulous body of work) and tour through to this very, sad, day. I last saw the Buzzcocks live at Rebellion in August. 'Whatever Happened To?' - they won't be saying that about you Pete. Thanks from all of us Stockport school boys.
