A great advert for Fred Perry appeared in this months Wallpaper magazine. Depicting buildings from Manchester in the late '70s including the Arndale Centre, it also includes one of the lads from the cover of our friend Ian Houghs 'Perry Boys Abroad' book.
Ian began writing as a forum member on the 80s Casuals website a few years back now. His memoirs of those early days in Manchester were that good that we asked him not to write anymore as he should commit them to a book. Within weeks we had put Milo books into contact with him and as they say the rest is history. 'Perry Boys' was his first book and is an honest and accurate account of growing up in recession hit Britain of the 70s and is a definite must buy. 'Perry Boys Abroad' the follow up, again is a personal account of a lad emerging into a grown up world.
Both books are still available from most book stores including Amazon and Play.
Ian lives on the other side of the pond now but you can still catch up with his literary musings on his own website http://thenamelessthing.com/
