Some wiseguy once said that a photograph is worth a couple of dozen sentences and there's not enough adjectives to describe what's going on in this book. SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE 'The story of a band that's always on the brink: of stardom, of madness, of brilliance, of disgrace' Miranda Sawyer, Observer 'You begin to wonder why more biographies aren't tackled with such invention' Record Collector 'This book is a rarity' Mark Lanegan 'One of the finest music books in aeons' Kevin Barry From the mountains of Algeria to the squats of South London via sectarian Northern Ireland, Ten Thousand Apologies is the sordid and thrilling story of the country's most notorious cult band, Fat White Family.

Loved and loathed in equal measure since their formation in 2011, the relentlessly provocative, stunningly dysfunctional "drug band with a rock problem" have dedicated themselves to constant chaos and total creative freedom at all costs. Shangri-La on their way down to the Hell Stage that night, my brother and I were accosted by ‘uber-producer’ Mark Ronson. This no holds barred, raw account of the rise and fall of one of the best indie rock bands this century and is destined to become a classic rock 'bio' (of sorts).

Lias turns to art to save himself from the grimness (there is an excellent Schiele-esque self-portrait in the book); it leads him to London and the Slade art school. but some of the editing feels a lil' rusty and all the stories of smack, crack and meth did start to blur into one.Ten Thousand Apologies, with its detailed descriptions of fuck-ups and come-downs, of opportunities missed and decisions untaken, isn’t going to change this reputation. girlfriend, who also played synth for the group at the time, that he didn’t have another pair of trousers to change into. With that, I read Nigeyb’s review of Ten Thousand Apologies: Fat White Family and the Miracle of Failure and thought about how I knew this band and that the review was very compelling. Ten Thousand Apologies” is surely one of the most grimly compelling books ever written about the dehumanising effects of the music industry.
