"Essential" -- Vive le Rock!

Among the many near-mythical figures of the Manchester music scene, he's known as the Nearly Man. You'd expect a drummer to have better timing.

Yes, he parted ways before The Patrol became the Stone Roses. Yes, he turned down The Smiths. Yes, Noel Gallagher asked if he fancied joining his band.

Right place, right time, wrong choices? Timing is everything.

But the beat goes on and while Simon Wolstencroft can see what might have been, cultivating bitterness bears no fruit. And 'Funky Si' has tasted the nectar.

Spending an unlikely 11 years in The Fall and hooking up with his old mate Ian Brown during his solo days, You Can Drum But You Can't Hide reflects on a life driven by a passion for playing.

Taking you from the warehouses of Manchester and the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to the high rises of Tokyo, this book hands you a backstage pass to an evocative age that restored pride to the city of Manchester. With humour and detail, Si's memoir recounts a fascinating tale of drumming and drugs, friendships and fall outs, but, above all, a love of music.

Head over to Strata Books where you can hear Simon reading excerpts & enjoy a soundtrack of some of the less well-known bands featured in the book, including The Patrol and Freak Party.
