Description

Okay are a Canadian indie/rock band who sound a little like the Velvet Underground on quarter-speed. This is their story. Narrated by the drummer, Clap, it follows twenty years of life on and off the road with the band: the gigs and groupies, the tunes and tours, the fall outs and fuck ups, the overdoses and the sweet, sweet soul-damage of it all.For anyone who's ever wondered what it's like to be in a rock band, I Play the Drums in a Band Called Okay is a dream of a book that delivers everthing it promises - but it's more than that too, and behind the glitz of celebrity shimmers a mature and nuanced novel about pains and joys as fundamental as those of loving and losing, growing up and moving on . . .
