By Dave Ball
As half of celebrated eighties duo Soft Cell, Dave Ball's long career in music has been quite the ride not least creating the instantly recognisable electronic sound that made Tainted Love a massive hit around the world.
In his refreshing autobiography, Dave Ball recounts a musical journey from his first home-made amplifier to falling for northern soul and becoming an electronic pop wizard, first with Soft Cell and later with The Grid. Dave then pursued a dazzling array of collaborations as well as intermittent reformations of Soft Cell and The Grid.
Electronic Boy is a compelling story from start to finish, told with relish, humour and honesty.
'Ball has written this memoir not just as an Eighties music study, but as someone who has a story very much worth telling in the jigsaw of social history ... Ball is clearly a multi-talented figure when it comes to the arts – not just with art and music, but with this beautifully written and thoughtful memoir, he can now add “writing” to that list.' - Louder than War
