Críticas:

'Comprises fresh interviews with the main acts, excellent levels of research and conveys the sheer absurdity of this mad label s brilliance.' - Q Magazine

'A passionate and detailed book that s simply a must-read. Stunning.' (10/10) - Vive Le Rock

'Stiff aficionados will appreciate this.' - --Classic Pop

'Coming into being just as Pub Rock was giving way to the rumblings of Punk, Stiff operated more or less as a guerilla outfit, being capable of signing an act on a whim...Be Stiff is a fabulous account of heady times and a perfect Christmas present for gentlemen of a certain age.' - The Herald

'Richard Balls has fond memories of his first encounter with the musical maverick spirit of Stiff Records...Thirty-three years later the cousin of Ed Balls, Shadow Chancellor and Labour MP for Morley and Outwood, has published a history of the label he became such a fan of in his teens.' - --The Yorkshire Post

'The story of inspirational independent Stiff Records has been Malcolm Wyatt's music book of 2014.He spoke to author Richard Balls about this legendarily chaotic yet influential label.' - The Lancashire Evening Post

Be Stiff was featured in a Newstalk interview by Tom Dunne with Ken Sweeney, who writes for the Irish Sun (5 January 2015)

'Richard Balls' new book Be Stiff: The Stiff Records Story is half great because it serves as a series of biographies outlining the early careers of such significant artists and half great because it s so fun to read about all the outrageousness of and surrounding Stiff.' -Psychobabble

&quotIt s an instructive music-industry story told insightfully by the author, who digs deep and often with the help of former label staff and music acts, some of whom don t hold back in biting the hand that once fed them." - --The Irish Times

Reseña del editor:

Told here for the first time, the complete story of the legendary Stiff Records. Started in 1976, by maverick music entrepreneurs Jake Riviera and Dave Robinson, Stiff changed the landscape of a moribund record industry. Both men were involved in the pub rock scene and their genius was to take un-hip pub rockers, such as Ian Dury and Elvis Costello, and turn them into cool new wavers. It didn't stop there either, with Stiff releasing the first ever punk single (The Damned's New Rose'), in October 1976. Filled with interviews and memorabilia this is the perfect guide to Stiff.'
