9 out of 10 for Tim's outsider

Apathy and Exhaustion review Tim Cundle's 'Compression' punk rock novel on Earth Island Books giving it a 'Tony of Nurgle rating: 9/10'. See what they had to say:


...It’s safe to say that that particular aspect of the book is not autobiographical in any true sense. However, I would speculate that the boyhood dream of achieving fame and/or infamy through the channel of one’s outsider interests may play a role here in providing a back story for the protagonist of the story. I do feel that perhaps other core themes around the central character having historically been something of an outsider, general punchbag and hapless victim of unrequited love whilst haunting the periphery of a shit-bag town doubtless ring true. Perhaps this is also why I also found Michael Flanagan to be not only a believable character, but one I found I could empathise with.

Engineer Records is a truly independent alternative record label with over 300 rocking releases out in the world.

We believe punk rock is an ethic, even more than a sound, and have been promoting both brand new and well-known bands equally since our formation as Ignition Records back in 1999. The label is based in the southeast corner of England but has partners and distributers all over the world.

We are always looking for great bands and ways to promote our artists and their releases. 
Please contact us if you can help in any way. Let's work together.
