(Still) Annoying the Neighbours is the story of a bank clerk who writes a classic punk anthem at the age of 22. A song that will take him and his band round the planet, A song that will turn his world upside down.

But, this is not just the story of a suburban boy achieving his dreams. It's the story of cycles of success, failure, disappointment and perseverance, of elation and depression, of rocking with punk legends like Johnny Thunders, Dee Dee Ramone, Rat Scabies and Glen Matlock, then busking in a subway, of rediscovered folk roots, reinventing himself as a filing clerk, warehouseman, fashionista, accordianiste, jingle writer, pantomine actor, film composer, before returning to the mosh pits and auditoriums of his youth, of touring the world with The re-invented Members. This is not a rags to riches story, this is the story of a lifelong love affair with music.Artwork and layout by New Wave Art Guru Malcolm Garrett - Foreword by acclaimed Bob Marley and Joe Strummer Biographer Chris Salewicz./h3>
