Martin Warminger – music obsessive – journeys through his personal history of rock and pop music.
Accumulating an extensive collection of singles and albums, his love of popular music has resulted in profound effects on his life.
‘Memoirs' is a cathartic and humorous account of one fan’s life in the thrall of pop music in all its forms set against the humdrum backdrop of suburban living and trying to be a grown-up. Sharing his remarkable knowledge and appreciation of the music industry, he recalls the highs and lows of favourite artists and bands – spanning more than fifty years.
Part autobiography and part analytical commentary on popular culture, the narrative toggles between the two main threads and demonstrates how an obsession with popular music can grow to ludicrous proportions.
