Synopsis

Bursting onto the music scene in the 70's, Chas 'n' Dave released songs that spoke about life in London, using their own accents rather than the fashionable but fake transatlantic twang. They knew that if they wrote and sang about their own experience rather than simply making up the bollocks that was normally expected then people would be interested. With hits like "Gertcha", "Rabbit", "The Sideboard Song" and "Margate", they created a sound that was uniquely British and rockin' to boot. What most people don't know is that both Chas and Dave had previous careers, playing with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, nor the stories about getting nicked fishing, getting cracked onto by dodgy producers, going barmy locked in recording studios, playing with the Beatles and generally getting pi$$ed and having a laugh. If you've ever wondered what makes this legendary duo tick (or even which one is bloody which) then this is the book for you!
