Praise

“An exuberant memoir that doubles as slapstick comedy…. A riotous portrait of a naive rocker with a penchant for foolishness, Sick on You is packed with louche behavior, provocative musicianship, and outrageous social gaffes…. Matheson writes with the jagged verve he once sought from his band…. He has turned his punk rock travails into an enormously likable memoir.”
—Kevin Canfield, The Washington Post

“True, proper Rock ‘n’ Roll. A funny, sad, superbly written saga. This book is great.” 
—Bob Geldof

“A rueful, funny memoir of a doomed life in rock ‘n’ roll…. Matheson writes with an easy, loping gait…a vivid account of a bygone musical era.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Andrew Matheson’s concise, hilarious memoir tells the pleasure and pain of being an unheralded pioneer.” 
—Jon Savage, author of England’s Dreaming
 
“The greatest rock ’n’ roll story you’ve never heard.”
—John Niven, author of Kill Your Friends
 
“The Hollywood Brats are a folk legend; they were doing what they were doing before anybody. This is one of the great rock ’n’ roll hard-luck stories, by turns shocking and hilarious.” 
—Bob Stanley, author of Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
