The new version of the book is also going to have Caroline Coon's wonderful photograph of Tessa Pollitt on its cover.
Apart from being a lovely photo of Tessa, it is also symbolic to show (a) a bass-player, traditionally not at the forefront of a band and (b) a female demonstrating that she can play her instrument and (c) the shy person out of the band and lastly (d) a person playing the instrument that I played!
Bass-playing in punk bands could be a PHD in itself- so much innovation and character, and such a distinctive contribution to the sound of each band.
I must write something about it!
