In the absence of live music this year, we wanted to celebrate the special events that we’ve shared in years past. We asked contributors to tell us what live music means to them, and to share stories of tours, festivals and gigs that have stuck in their memories.
The collection runs the gamut of grotty tour vans, sweaty basement shows and festival antics, with trips as far afield as Los Angeles, Tokyo and Argentina. Every story is as relatable as it is unique: a celebration of the unusual moments that always seem to happen on the road, and the ubiquitous energy that unites us at every live show, no matter the genre or the location.
Were you at the Download Riots of 2006? Have you been strip-searched by border control? Have you broken your hand in a human pyramid? Have you ruined a dentist’s life? Perhaps not, but you’ll feel like you have after reading this.
PAPERCUTS #2 is available as a great value bundle with PAPERCUTS #1, our first book, which we've reprinted as it sold out so fest last year!
