Not sure how this slipped under the radar for me (video from February), unsure
if this has previously been mentioned before here, but a heads up for anyone

There is an autobiography book from DJ Mont Shearer to be released in 2016, and
as part of its promotion a 30 minute documentary about Big Paul has been done
and fascinating watching.

Watch [here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyKJ5DmHc8E> ]

As for the book itself I have cut and pasted the blurb...definitely one to look
out for, its on my to buy list for sure.....

“Sex WAX n Rock n Roll” is an autobiography by legendary 80s-era underground DJ,
Mont Sherar. Sherar was a prime shaker of post-punk dancefloor vinyl, spanning
nearly the entire decade between 1980 to 1990.

A life story beginning in the 60s, unfolding into a pre-internet, post-punk,
dance club industry of the 80s — and the subsequent death of it in the 90s. The
internet, digital downloading and other technological advances, became tools for
everyday use — and abuse. Technology changed, the music industry changed, life
had changed.

Supplemented with personal contributions by many of the musicians who actually
made the music described within. A unique insight and perspective into a time of
musical magic, evolving technology, and so much more! "
