Even though the last ever tune from The Streets was the conclusively titled ‘Close the Book’ — in response to the opening of Original Pirate Material which was ‘Turn the Page’ — indicating that the last page of that particular saga had been turned, it has now come to light that an actual book, written by Mike Skinner alongside Ben Thompson, is due for release on March 28th. There is currently very little information available on the memoir, dubbed The Story of the Streets, and all we know so far has been gleaned from Skinner’s recent tweets. “I wasnt going to have photos in my book,” he wrote earlier this week “coz i thought it was a bit silly but the wife said i had to”. Long story short, his mum gave him some pictures and no doubt some of them are in the book.
Personally, I’m going to buy it and read it. You should too. Unless you want to wait for my opinion on it first…although, I know you don’t really value my views anyway. ‘Close the Book’ is available for download below, because it’s relevant. I’m tired.
