Oxford-based band Little Fish were signed to a major label, recorded an album in LA and played all over the world. They supported Courtney Love; Debbie Harry saw them and was impressed enough to invite them to support Blondie for a UK tour. They were living the rock 'n' roll dream, but it wasn't making them happy. So they came home, set up a recording studio and started doing the things that did make them happy, instead of the things they thought they should do to get played on Radio 1. F**k the Radio is a book about independence, about making your own way and making stuff. It asks important questions: Why do we make music? What do people want from bands? How do you create a community? How do you make a living? What is a living? And what happens when you rewrite the myths you live by?
