A novel about a high school band by Lowell Tarling with artwork by Martin Sharp.
You may finish school with no plans, no money, and no direction. But if all you want is to play guitar with your teeth, smash a Rickenbacker or grow your hair long - then being in a high school band could be the last thing you need… It is 1967. Tom is 18, and ready…
This novel combines the cunning wit of Lowell Tarling with the atmospheric pop art of the iconic Martin Sharp. It is the best of times. It is the worst of times. It is the age of wisdom. It is the age of foolishness. It is the age of The Who and the Beatles. It is the time of Dylan. It is the season of Light. It is the season of Darkness. Nobody is who they think they are. Everyone is whoever they want to be. It is the autumn of despair, the winter of discontent, the spring of hope. And the Summer of Love. We have everything before us. Everything is original. Everything borrowed. People come only in two types: those who ARE Rock and Roll and those who aint.
1967 - THIS IS IT! embraces the journey of Thomas Truscott - wannabee rock god and all round misfit as he careens from disaster to discovery in his last year of school, battling the establishment, prefects, the Vietnam war and most of all, himself.
