Singer with Post-Punk band Siiiii, Paul Devine beautifully, movingly and hilariously chronicles five decades both in and out of the music business. The book takes us on a weaving journey from an often-troubled East Anglian childhood, through the seamy clubs and venues of 1980’s Sheffield, via undiagnosed ADHD and coming to terms with mental illness. This is a sometimes shocking life story about death, sex, Punk Rock, fish, possible demonic possession and love.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had intended to write a memoir for decades, having had a colourful life. I simply never had the time. Redundancy in September 2020 meant that I had more time than I could easily fill, so I sat down and wrote my book.
But for their leaden diet, the life of the tribe was idyllic. They carved ornate and wondrous creatures from shore-pebbles and from the bones of great fish. They wrote poetry on tench-hide using charcoal from their fires, which they would preserve with oils from lustrous aquatic insects captured by firelight in nets of diaphanous bone. They traded filigreed nacre jewellery with their fellow tribes along the shore. And their exquisite music, played on turtle shells strung with fishgut and spun mother-of-pearl, was venerated all along the brink of the sea.
