Stairway To Nowhere is the true story of late 1970’s, Birmingham, UK band Fàshiön.
In the brief spotlight of their fifteen minutes of fame, Fàshiön toured both the USA and UK as opening band for The Police, did a UK club tour with a then unknown band from Ireland called U2, opened for The B52’S on their first ever UK tour, and had a new band called Duran Duran open shows for them.
The book tells the story of how four young, unemployed working class gits from the gutters of Brum donned make-up, attitude, weird clothes and swaggered forth to escape the dreaded clutches Birmingham’s car factory mentality by conquering the music business.
On their voyage of escape and discovery, Fàshiön encounter a plethora of the music industry’s sickest practitioners. Join them on their headlong flight up the stairway to nowhere, as they cobble together some of the most innovative and original pop music of the time.
