Details

First came Spinal Tap in all their cliched glory; then there was Matt Rothwell and his band MTF. There was just one imperceptible difference: MTF, in all their cliched glory, were very, very real. The Electric Guitar Daydream Quest is Matt's humorous and self deprecating twenty year journey along the lonely route to rock 'n' roll stardom; from a young boy strumming a tennis racket along to The Wombles, to a full blown man crush on all things The Wonder Stuff. In the pursuit of his rock 'n' roll dream he serves up a real 'How-Not-To Guide' for anyone who has ever aspired to strap on an electric guitar and go in search of the perfect riff, groupie filled parties and rock 'n' roll immortality. Starting out in Dudley in the mid 1970s and ending in early 1990s Tokyo, it takes in the very improbable rock 'n' roll hotbeds of Kidderminster, Wolverhampton and the Algarve. It is an alcohol fuelled rollercoaster ride to the very brink of pre-Brit Pop stardom, that culminates in a brief five (not quite fifteen) minutes of fame for the author as the singer-guitarist of MTF: the Black Country's greatest ever (author's words) indie rock band. Are you ready to rock?
