We all have idols.
Five's idol is Gary Numan.
But instead of just getting his rocks off to the music like any fan would, he took it all a bit too far.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
His tribute band, 'The Romford Bombers' became an instant sensation in Essex. On top of the world, Five had no idea things were about to get savage when a new group, 'The Storm Troopers' burst on to the scene.
Dethroned, heart broken and with the all-time battle of the Numan tribute bands approaching. Five is determined to get even and find answers to burning questions like:
—Why is there no trace of The Storm Troopers before last year?
—Why does Ross, the Troopers' singer and Five's nemesis, have suspicious gaps in his knowledge of Numanology?
—Why does Ross work at the local undertaker's and what are those weird neon lights coming from the backyard?
This e book is a backstory to Numan versus Numan. I give some background about what inspired me to write the book and why I'm writing an 'Alternative 80s' series.
This is not just for Gary Numan fans, but please be warned it does contain middle-aged men wearing eyeliner.
