I intended to listen, by way of delayed gratification, chapter by chapter in installments. But like a packet of opened biscuits, I guiltily consumed Coal Black Mornings in one sitting. This is a memoir in which the author paints a picture of his bleak, poverty stricken upbringing with the juxtaposition of the colourful family characters that would later bring the lyrics of his song to life. It's a story of the influence of father to son and then on to Brett's own son. The moment you look in the mirror and see and acknowledge you are a reflection of your parents.

Was really enjoying this until it ended when they signed their record deal which was a real shame.

As a suede fan from the 90’s, I lived through the story in real time. Liked how the prose offers great vignettes of early 90’s England. Fabulous insights and moving storytelling.
Avoids the Cocaine and gold discs cliche and narrates us instead to the human side of the outsider on the brink of cataclysmic music and cultural shift
