Rough Trade is practically a byword for the history of independent music over the last thirty years. DOCUMENT AND EYEWITNESS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY OF ROUGH TRADE tells the story from the inside of a phenomenally influential record label, through the voices of Geoff Travis, Jarvis Cocker, Robert Wyatt, Green Gartside and many many more. From the early records of Cabaret Voltaire, Kleenex and the Swell Maps, through to groundbreaking releases by The Fall, The Smiths and Scritti Pollitti, on through the collapse of the independent collective and the rebirth of Rough Trade at the turn of the century, this is the definitive, essential account for any serious music fan.

Neil Taylor

Neil Taylor is an expert on brands, and how they use language. He's creative director of The Writer (www.thewriter.co.uk), and has been described as "the David Beckham of naming" (when that was still good). He's helped clients name everything from supermarkets to TV technology to toilet roll. He was previously a senior naming consultant at global brand consultancy Interbrand.

Most days, he spends his time training people to become better writers at work (when he's not writing the menus for Greek restaurant chains). He works with people like the BBC, Unilever, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sotheby's and 3.

He's also written Search Me: The surprising success of Google, co-edited From Here to Here: Stories inspired by London's Circle Line, and is a contributor to Common Ground: Around Britain in 30 writers and 26 Letters: Illuminating the alphabet, also published by Cyan. And he's on the board of business writers' group 26.
