When Pete’s parents moved from Cyprus to Birmingham in the 1960s in the hope of a better life, they had no money and only a little bit of English. They opened a fish-and-chip shop in Acocks Green. The Great Western Fish Bar is where Pete learned about coin-operated machines, male banter and Britishness. Shy and introverted, Pete stopped speaking from age 4 to 7, and found refuge instead in the bittersweet embrace of pop songs, thanks to Top of the Pops and Dial-A-Disc. From Brotherhood of Man to UB40, from ABBA to The Police, music provided the safety net he needed to protect him from the tensions of his home life.
Pete Paphides hat als kleiner Junge den Weg in die Welt der Musik gefunden. „Vividly-written account of childhood and early adolescence of a child of immigrants in 70s and 80s Birmingham, all carefully ’soundtracked‘ by contemporary pop music.“(Leser) (1.242 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 505 Seiten noch günstig?
