White Bicycles, Joe Boyd's memoir, has hit the stands.
First spotted nestled in the rack, Simon Reynolds in Time Out: White Bicycles
Michael Faber for the Guardian, Listening for a Living - White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s
"And the title of the memoir? It’s an emblem, explains Boyd, for all those ‘lovely ideas of the 1960s’ that didn’t quite work out. It specifically refers to the Dutch Provos scheme of distributing white bicycles around Amsterdam for people to use for free – a utopian plan that worked fine for a while, ‘until by the end of 1967 people started stealing the bikes and repainting them’."
