Footnote is a clever, funny and irreverent autobiography about a boy from depressing small town England ditching Mormonism, finding punk rock, squatting with his mates and promoting political insurrection. After years of earnest, determined (if not talented) gigging, his pop/punk group, Chumbawamba, make it BIG with "Tubthumping." Not another plodding rock memoir but a compassionate, critical, and sometimes cynical account of a life steeped in pop culture, class conflict, political activism, and what the British call "football." Fantastic.

More About Boff Whalley
Boff Whalley did two things in 1981. He started a band and did his first marathon. In the following five years the band, Chumbawamba, recorded several albums and toured the world. The running? It took five years until he ran a hill race to make a success of it. And he was hooked. Being in a band is his life and work, but off-road running is his passion.
