Lord Tarquin – ‘Memoirs Of A Shoegazing Gentleman’ jimmy 27/06/2014 shoegaze Exciting news from British record label Sonic Cathedral, they’re moving into the highbrow world of publishing with the hilariously titled book ‘Memoirs Of A Shoegazing Gentleman’ by Lord Tarquin (out this July)! As the presser states… “Memoirs Of A Shoegazing Gentleman was originally published as a spoof column in NME between October 26, 1991 and February 1, 1992, and was written by writer and broadcaster David Quantick in the guise of Lord Tarquin. The new version has been illustrated by designer Marc Jones, and features the 10 original chapters, plus a new epilogue which brings the story of the pupils of Shoey House up to date in a morass of middle class mockery, double entendres and badly translated Latin. It will be available from the Sonic Cathedral stall at the Independent Label Market – held at Spitalfields Market in London on Saturday, July 12 – selected shops and from soniccathedral.co.uk, priced £5. There will also be a launch party at The Social in London on Monday, July 7. An Evening With Lord Tarquin & Friends will be hosted by Miki Berenyi from Lush and will feature David Quantick reading from the book, a live set by Mark Gardener (Ride) and guest DJs including Stephen Patman (Chapterhouse) and Phil King (Lush). Entry is free.” Visit Sonic Cathedral online for more details.
