Reviews

  • A code-red book... Drop what you're reading and read this immediately... A rip-snorting, rollicking ride from obscurity to rock 'n' roll debauchery and through the other side.

    Alex James, Blur
  • Brilliant, funny, sharply-observed... The airport-busting novel of the summer

    Loaded
  • Powder is more essential to your well-being than 97 percent of the albums that'll come out this year.

    Melody Maker
  • A pacey and hilarious catalogue of vanity, insecurities, bonhomie and belligerence... A portrait of the contemporary music industry that is almost uncanny in its accuracy.

    Independent
  • Tells it like it is - Sampson is never better than when revelling in the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll - All young bands should be made to read Powder; if it doesn't put them off, nothing will
