Better than no book on Zounds

There's nothing on Zounds apart from snippets on their website and minor sleevenotes. I have entitled this "Better than no book on Zounds" as that's what it is rather than an indepth look at the history of the band and all the anorak facts that readers of rock biographies like to know. But Steve Lake hasn't claimed anymore than lyrics and notes - so it does what it says on the tin. Had there been more research to read I would've read it but Zounds were so obscure in the first place I'm happy this book actually exists. The format and design are spot-on and it's a great read - so thanks Steve. Excellent value for money and a must have for the Zounds fan/collector. From a purely selfish point of view I would have liked to see more pics, release and tour dates in detail and more about the 1992 reunion. Overall I can't fault it and I think you should buy it!!!
