The cover text & opening paragraph in the book...
What you hold in your hands is a landmark publication, our long awaited extensive survey of the amazing Italian "Spaghetti-Rock" scene. Although centred on the progressive rock scene of the 1970s, we have attempted to cover all related genres here, amounting to more than just another prog rock guide. Indeed, we believe that "A Fistful Of Spaghetti" is the first English encyclopedia of Italian rock and new-music to fully examine this too-often overlooked but amazingly prolific and innovative scene in all its facets, tracing its roots from the avant-garde and pop music, via the new freedom of the post psychedelic era that gave birth to it.

A fund-raising campaign will be launched nearer the date of publishing.
Fund donations via PayPal to utle2uk@btconnect.com will be welcome, and we may use the services of a "crowd funding" site as well. Once we get a better idea of the costs involved we will then set up the rules as to payment. Fund raising in advance and pre-orders will be essential, as it is unlikely we'd be able to finance this all ourselves. Help from publishing partners will also be considered.
