    1 thought on “Perry Boys

    1. I work with Ian. He's a great chap. His writing has a wonderfully frantic style. If you like books like Trainspotting you should check this one out. While it is in part a historical exploration of fashion, football, and life in late 70's manchester, there's a lot of great organic philosophy mixed in. A truly fun read.

    2. Definitely one of the better-written football hooligan cash-in memoirs. That being said, it's a bit disorganized and suffers for a lack of illustration (at least in the sections discussing fashion). Of course the early Perry Boy/Scally/proto-Casual years went without much photographic evidence or press coverage, so there isn't really a pool to draw from in terms of illustrations.
