Music journalist James Brown launches new football book/biog in Manchester next week…details here

9781786481764James Brown was one of the key writers from the NME in the 80s/90s. Initially from Leeds he came to attention with his great Attack On Bzag magazine and support for Leeds United.

Waterstones Deansgate  welcomes James Brown to Manchester next Wednesday Feb 15th to discuss his favourite five-a-side anecdotes and experiences with Stuart Maconie.
James Brown has been playing football since growing up in the backstreets of Leeds. The sudden death of one his long-standing team mates made James ponder the unique bond between men who meet each other once a week for years, but don’t know any personal details beyond pitch prowess. Five-a-Side football is where you play the beautiful game for love, not money. You play it for life and you play it everywhere. Your kit is damp and your legs are a leopard’s back of bruises. Shirts are often tight around the belly, with your hero’s name plastered across your shoulder blades. Your performance is patchy and maybe not what it used to be. But we all still think we played great.

James will discuss the book before taking audience questions and signing copies of Above Head Height.
