90s nostalgia and rock n roll with 'Three and a half minutes of fame'

While it may seem like a distant memory in the frantic digital age, there was a world before social media and the internet made everything available at the touch of a button. This was the world that Alex Boucher grew up in. During the nineties, he spent a decade playing in Travis Cut, Three and A Half Minutes, Jaff, and NV, and experienced the reality and insanity of the music business as a full-time, willing participant.

Having opted for a career behind the scenes he left life in the limelight far behind, and when the pandemic made us all lockdown, he was left with a lot of time on his hands. Having kept a meticulous diary of the decade that time would rather forget and that he spent touring, travelling and almost making it, Alex decided to document the turbulent truth of life as a musician in the 1990s.

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to be, as Cameron Crowe so eloquently put it “almost famous” and why it was a long way to the top if you wanted to rock and roll in the nineteen nineties, then you need to lose yourself in Alex Boucher’s brilliant, unflinching, uncompromising and brutally honest memoir Three And A Half Minutes Of Fame.

Three And A Half Minutes of Fame by Alex Boucher is available for pre-order now.

Officially published 27/4/24 we'll likely have first press copies late in March and will send them out asap, so grab your copy, sit back, and enjoy all the rock n roll stories and 90s nostalgia it’ll bring you.

“Fun, nostalgic and painfully honest. A brilliant ride through the ups, downs, hopes and dreams of gigging in the 90s.”

Lucy Nichol, Author, The 27 Club and Parklife.

"Alex was there at one of the most pivotal times in British rock music, relentlessly observing while playing his drums all over the country. He’s lovingly and unflinchingly captured it all in this cool book- a great read"

Tim Thornton, author, The Alternative Hero & drummer, Fink.
