“The best NEW BOOK I read all year was THIS IS MEMORIAL DEVICE by DAVID KEENAN, which seemed to find a new way of telling a story, a kind of fabricated docu-fiction, and gave utterly vivid three-dimensional life to a community of outsider artists in a small Scottish town at the start of the '80s.

The book is constructed as an oral history assembled by two superfans who interview band members.
