I wrote this the day Bowie died in 2016. Quite a few of you have been asking for the link this weekend so I've decided to move it away from the obscure tumblr url it was hiding on and give it new home here on the main Fahrenheit blog - seems to make sense, pretty sure if there had been no Bowie in my life, there would have been no Fahrenheit Press.  Kooks A little 7 year old boy from an irish catholic council house in Glasgow was lying in front of a massive valve powered cabinet tv one night...

Call for submissions : Gabba Gabba Hey - A Ramones Anthology

“Well, I think we're the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world.." - Joey Ramone Formed in 1974, the Ramones were one of the quintessential punk bands. Fast, loud, and in your face, they captured the anger and ennui of a generation.  Teenagers for decades have identified with the themes in their quick, sparse lyrics and driving music.

A Christmas Hug by Derek Farrell

In this very personal post author Derek Farrell explains why The Little Matchgirl gets his vote to be included in our Christmas Special Edition - A Very Fahrenheity Christmas...   Marie Grimes – a cousin on my father’s side - was my Godmother. Marie was my aunt’s daughter, but the age gap between us meant I referred to her as Auntie Marie. She was almost impossibly glamorous for Dublin in the seventies and eighties: Marie had a job with the European Union, and lived in Luxembourg and Brussels, and jetted around European capitals at a time when people like me...
