Mondays, Bloody Mondays
Susan Compo, Siren, 1991
As the Happy Mondays prepare to release a live album to counteract/complement the Baby Big Head bootleg, whats a girl with a book of post-punk and neo-goth fiction, rife with allusions to the Cure, populated with rather angelic Sid Vicious clones and full of painstaking/heartstaking romances, doing on her way to meet Manchesters merchants of mayhem? And what fate would a, well, sensitive artist meet and the hands (and feet) of Shaun Ryder and Company? Follow Susan Compo as she blindly goes, painting and panting her way into Shauns corner.
