Shaun Ryder has lived a life of glorious highs and desolate lows As lead singer of the Happy Mondays he turned Manchester into Madchester combining all the excesses of a true rock'n'roll star with music and lyrics that led impresario Tony Wilson to describe him as 'the greatest poet since Yeats' The young scally who left school at fifteen without ever learning his alphabet had come a very long way indeed Huge chart success and a Glast 'Twisting My Melon' was published in 2011 shortly after Shaun had appeared on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here something I was unaware of I like Shaun and his music and so when I saw it in the library I got it out to read on a whim and I’m glad I did How Shaun Ryder is still even vaguely functional is a miracle He must be cut from the same cloth as Keith Richards or Lemmy and would probably survive a nuclear explosion As you might imagine he has spent most of his adult life as a functioning addict and has taken virtually every drug going What’s great about 'Twisting My Melon’ is that whilst he’s frank and matter of fact he doesn’t over egg it and makes it all sound pretty sordid Which it is When he wrote this book he was clearly in a better place than for many years I hope that still applies He really was a maverick alchemist who was the catalyst for some era defining music and that he managed it with both the Happy Mondays and again with Black Grape shows that his talent and instincts were generally spot onAlthough there is nothing particularly surprising in 'Twisting My Melon’ it’s still a great read Shaun Ryder has got a hell of life to recount and if you like his music and are interested in him as a person then it’s got lots of great insightsAt his best Shaun Ryder is a surreal profane joyous eclectic poet whose bizarre rhymes somehow marry popular culture drug and literary references odd slogans and doggerel with hook laden pop songs That he was rarely straight during his most productive years is nothing short of a miracle45
