Ginger has forgotten he has already written a book it’s called Songs and Words and details each song/album track he has written up to the 555% album along with what was happening to the Wildhearts and personally at the time of recording. It was a pledge only release, a large coffee table type book and not readily available. I think my copy was £30 when it was originally put out there some time in 2010ish.
