Mick O'Shea is 56 years-old. He was born and raised in Accrington, Lancashire, before making the move south in 2008, and now lives in Surrey. He spent ten years working in the finance industry before making the switch from numbers to letters on a full-time basis in 2008. Mick started out penning articles for magazines such as Amped, Wired and Record Collector, before attempting his first manuscript, Only Anarchists Are Pretty, a semi-biographical account of the early days of the Sex Pistols (Published by Helter Skelter in October 2004). Anarchy In The UK (the sequel to Only Anarchists Are Pretty) was published in February 2018.
‘Anarchy in the UK’ is clever, gritty, fast moving and, at times; very, very funny.
It makes you feel as though you’re right there on that legendary tour bus with Johnny, Sid et al. It is a must have for any dodgy ol’ punk or, for that matter, anybody with a healthy interest in a nice, juicy bit of rock n’ roll debauchery.
