About The Author

Music legend and Belfast’s godfather of punk Terri Hooley was born and brought up in Belfast. In 1978, at the height of the Troubles, he opened a record shop, and later founded the music label Good Vibrations. The shop quickly became the hub of the punk movement and of the music revolution sweeping Northern Ireland. The record label had an impressive portfolio of bands including The Undertones whose classic hit 'Teenage Kicks' it released and which DJ John Peel described as his favourite song. In spite of bankruptcy, arson, and run-ins with Bob Dylan and John Lennon, the label, the shop and Terri survived a turbulent and colourful career in the music industry.  A biopic of his life, Good Vibrations, has received rave reviews and was nominated for a BAFTA. Terri tells his story in his acclaimed autobiography, Hooleygan: Music, Mayhem and Good Vibrations.Follow Terri on Facebook: www.facebook.com/terri.hooley
