AS the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through London’s music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit—fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of cocaine—Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast and the hits are drying up, and the only way he’s going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of “cutthroat” to murderous new levels.

Review: Kill Your Friends

User Review  - Karl Butler - Goodreads

A very poorly written book that simply tried too hard to be funny and shocking, but ends up being too direct to be either. A real shame that a satire on the music industry could not be a bit more clever and original. Read full review
