Drink up thy zider! Writer of dozens of many West Country songs, Adge Cutler died on his way home from a gig in 1974. At the time his group The Wurzels had reached the top of the charts. In 2012, they continue to pack venues all over the country, with Adge's band-mates Tommy Banner and Pete Budd still setting the whole Scrumpy and Western scene. This long overdue biography brings Adge Cutler back to life, not only his eight crazy Wurzels years, but from his early days in his beloved Nailsea to the lively camaraderie of the Portishead B power station's labourers, the thriving Bristol jazz and folk scenes of the 50s and 60s, and his spell as Acker Bilk's 'worst roadie in the world'. We take the road to Spain, the Zummerzet Zound, enjoy a giant Wurzelrama and an amazing vanishing Wurzels stick, and read about Yvonne and Adge's legacy. Includes discography, 154pp in well illustrated softback.
