Yer Blues, Othniel Smith

Yer Blues

191 printed pages
In a small town in the South Wales valleys, recovering drug-addict and nascent guitar-hero Jase Hopkins decides that the only way he can make something of himself is to finally form that band he's been talking about ever since time. Unfortunately, the best singer within a fifty-mile radius is a washed-up Tom Jones impersonator – his estranged father.

A story set in contemporary Britain; its subject matter – relationships, mistakes, and the potency of cheap music.

“I've read loads of stories about people wanting to be a rock god – this one begins at the moment our hero gives up on his dream of being the next Bono/Morrissey/Thom Yorke. So the end of most music stories is the start of this one, and it makes for a refreshingly different rock-read. I picked it up to read on the beach, found myself sitting down to finish it off as soon as I got home.” Gary Owen (playwright)
