Book Summary

In the 70s of the three day week, trade union strikes, blackouts, the IRA, steak, chips and warm beer, it was the Faces - a soulful, goodtime band who drank and played hard, who didn't dress to impress, but just got on with the job - that the working class adopted as its own. This biography of the band describes Britain in this forgotten era.

'There was this terrible trough in the mid-70s: England didn't qualify for the 1974 World Cup, Miss Hall our English teacher left school, and the Faces split' - Billy Bragg. Do you remember The Faces? The group that was born out of the ashes of the legendary sixties band the Small Faces, but with the addition of Ron Wood on guitar (later to join the Stones) and Rod Stewart on vocals. "Last Orders, Please" is the first biography of the band who have acquired legendary status in the annals of rock 'n' roll history. It's also a book about Britain in a forgotten era - the early seventies. Not the seventies of Glam Rock, Sweet and Gary Glitter, but the real seventies of the three day week, trade union strikes, blackouts, the IRA, steak, chips and warm beer. In these difficult times, it was the Faces - a soulful, goodtime band who drank and played hard, who didn't dress to impress, but just got on with the job - that the working class adopted as its own. In the days before football was fashionable the Faces played soccer on stage on TOTP. In 1974, this was a near-political act that confirmed The Faces as truly a people's band, and they are still loved, and revered to this day. short..
