“The Only Truth Is Music” ― Jack Kerouac

We chatted to Rosie Wilby on Soho Radio ahead of our next Rock and Roll Book Club Wednesday 2nd May, featuring a Q and A with her about her startling book ‘Is Monogamy Dead?’ plus some Rosie Wilby stand up and our specially commissioned (ahem) Sex Sex Sex Disco.

Anyway, point is, we just love that sweet spot where music meets literature. ‘The Only Truth Is Music’ wrote Jack Kerouac, and he knew a thing or two, at least before the bottle sent him gaga, he pretty much invented counter cultural Western Youth trends after all, and his appreciation of music was dazzling in his writing. Books, book men and women, music. Ever interlocked in lusty exchange those essential, sensual bedfellows…. The Dublin Castle Rock And Roll Book Club was recently featured in Time Out’s Best Book Clubs of London Guide, and has a wealth of remarkable authors coming up the first Wednesday of every month (and sometimes other evenings too)…..soon to feature are Rosie Wilby, DJ Taylor, Terry Edwards, Kevin Cummins, Sylvain Sylvain, The Damned, Madness, Morrissey, Nicky Weller. Recently featured Chris Difford, Ian Shirley, The KLF, Suede, Penny Pepper, The Fall and many more. Simply check out the Dublin Castle listings. Meanwhile hit up the delightful button badges above with your mouse or pingy and see our superb trailer as produced by the exceedingly talented Yann Jones, made the night David Barnett dropped by to talk crack cocaine, sex, Suede and ..well more drugs and sex this being a book about Suede….
