Buzzin': The Nine Lives of a Happy Monday
About this deal
Although it's out together by a professional music journalist, this second biography of Bez has his stamp all over it. His adult life has been extraordinary: unbelievable scrapes with mortality, periods of financial ruin, mindfuck moments like when David Bowie genuflected before him, and enough narcotic-strewn hi-jinx to fill several more volumes of memoir. Mark Berry is the kid who clambered up on stage to dance with the band and never climbed down again.

Helpful asides from Shaun Ryder and others, including Berry’s son Arlo who proves fairly lucid – opportunity for another book? Shaun Ryder (who pops up throughout this book) has already done a couple of excellent biographies with pretty much the same details. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults.This is the story of a bad lad who has turned his life good, tracing his passage from early-thirty-something casualty to middle-aged politician, eco-warrior and bee-aficionado. At the height of his initial, turn-of-the-1990's infamy as the maraca-wielding dancer with 'Madchester' giants Happy Mondays, the pop-eyed Mark Berry, forever known to the world as Bez, was visibly a danger to society. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Through Black Grape, the second band he co-fronted with the Mondays' Shaun Ryder, and his ever-presence in the mass media, Bez's popularity has grown exponentially, his star rocketing ever upwards. Having been in danger of becoming the rowdy kid in another class at school that nobody liked (although MB admits to skating over much of this, having covered it more in an earlier book), his public image proves nonetheless likeable to loads of people, which is why he won Celebrity Big Brother - and why I bought this book.
