Book of the week – What was that 30 year plan again?
This book details the journey of 30 years. It is written in yearly chapters and gives a perfect feel for the journey Therapy? went on. All the albums are dissected and lots of direct quotes from the members show how when they started they were just music fans and thirty years later that’s what they still are. Lovers of other people music playing music that suits them. That feeling really comes across here. Times may have changed, creases may be on faces but deep down they are still those kids making a racket.
