JC Carroll (The Members) - Still Annoying The Neighbours - Book
From bank clerk to punk rocker, From bedsit in North London to rock and roll heaven in Hollywood, “(still) Annoying the Neighbours” takes its title from the lyrics of The Members anthem “The Sound of the Suburbs” and traces the journey of Members Songwriter and guitarist JC “Jean-marie” Carroll a boy with three girls names catapulted from suburban obscurity into the punk rock limelight and then flung back onto the music business scrap heap ..
It tells the story of a man who is driven to make music, art and clothing a man who is escaping from, but always defined by, the songs of his youth. The book charts his early success through to recording and touring with Legends such as Glen Matlock , Dee Dee Ramone, Johhny Thunders Rat Scabies. Playing accordian for Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando and dressing Kylie Minogue.
It traces his rock and roll journey thru glam, Metal, Rock Punk, Electro, Folk and finally onto the silver screen. Like JC’s songs the book is simulataneously funny sad and triumphant.
