And Then They Ruined Everything
Book Two in the Death of Rock 'n' Roll Series
by Duncan Milne
Every action has a reaction. Every reaction has a consequence.
Every consequence creates a memory.
Having overcome the impossibility of time travel, Kenneth Ramsayer and his best friend exist to relive past rock ’n’ roll gigs. Everything is going well; they’ve become heroes, they’ve discovered love, they had the world by the tail, and then they ruined everything.
Based on what is left of their ruined music collections, it appears that rock ’n’ roll died in 1984.
Their unassailable knowledge of music, leads the boys to recall that in 1984 an unknown patron made a bootleg recording of a Replacements gig. This cassette was recovered and became the live album “The Shit Hits The Fans”. The history of rock ‘n’ roll was forever changed. Now in a viciously evil plot, a thief has absconded with the recording.
But what if the death of rock ’n’ roll isn’t connected to the missing cassette? Seeking help from unlikely sources and following fading memories, the boys travel across America in a bid to save rock ’n’ roll.
An intelligent satire, the second novel in the Death of Rock ’n’ Roll series, “And Then They Ruined Everything” cleverly uses the concept of time travel in a rock ’n’ roll setting as an examination of choices and the power of art in society.
Hardback & softcover versions distributed through Ingram. Available in Kindle edition also.
