Críticas:

You might wonder why Harris's life story requires a book. But when I finished reading Totally Wired, I understood why the cultural journalist Andrew Smith had written it. This was a slice of life never to be repeated...I wasn't sure in the end if I admired him for his refusal to be boring or if I scoffed at his self-indulgence. I suppose the answer is a bit of both. This was an age of excess and innocence unleashed by the breaking of financial and communications barriers --Guardian

'Tom Bromley's detailed and evocative memoir of the eighties music scene is
funny, warm and joyously spot on. Whether or not you grew up in the
eighties, you will be transported back with him to the most creative and
flamboyant era in music pop history' Carol Decker

'In Tom Bromley's self deprecating hands reliving the age of Wham! and
Duran Duran is a joy ... *Wired for Sound* is a witty and likeable tribute
to the innocent, childlike charms of pop music' Will Hodgkinson --Will Hodgkinson

Reseña del editor:

The eighties was a golden era for British pop: Radio One served as the soundtrack of the nation; the chart run-down on Sunday evenings was compulsory listening - ditto watching Top of the Popsand reading Smash Hits. It also saw the launch of the Now That's What I Call Music series. In the States, the arrival of MTV helped usher in what became known as the 'Second British Invasion', echoing the success of the Beatles twenty years earlier. Wired For Soundtells the remarkable story of the great eighties British bands (and Kajagoogoo) and how their music captured the nation's imagination: the more radical beginnings in the early eighties (the new romanticisms of Duran and Spandau, the 'protest pop' of early Wham!); the full pomp of their mid-eighties success (the worldwide tours, the glamorous video shoots, the ubiquitous 'Choose Life' and 'Relax' T-shirts); and their fall from the top of pop's pedestal (the splitting up of Wham!, Boy George's drug problems). Wired for Soundwill describe the subsequent descent to Band Aid II (Bros, Wet Wet Wet, Stock, Aitken and Waterman), which bookended the low point of the pop music that followed. Wired For Sound will be the affectionate celebration of both a musical youth and the era when young guns went for it. This is a book for anyone who grew up reading Smash Hits, soundtracked their teenage years on C90 cassettes and remembers a time when it really mattered who was number one.
