If, like me, you grew up going to gigs, we've got a treat for you, a free copy of '16 Years: Gigs In Scotland 1974-1990' (RRP £35).

A real labour of love, it's the work of LG friend Chris Brickley, who has been a busy bee these last few years, hunting down and digging out rarely seen gig pictures.

I was at the book's launch a couple of weeks ago - my first, pub-pulled pint of Guinness in months - and it was a braw night!

Covering the length and breadth of Scotland, '16 Years' spans 32 towns, 120 venues and 500 bands. As well as spotlighting Scotland's major cities, the book also covers towns and villages rarely - if ever - mentioned in music history, such as West Linton, Dumfries, Inverkip and Cumbernauld. It showcases legendary venues such as Clouds, Night Moves, Tiffany's, the Apollo and Silver Thread, alongside less familiar but crucial clubs like Splash One, Subterraneans, The International Hotel, The Onion Cellar, The Stagecoach, The Venue, Fat Sams and The Tamdhu.

There are photographs and memorabilia ranging from David Bowie, Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones, REM, U2, Joy Division and Jam to Kraftwerk, Devo, Cramps, Fall, Adam and the Ants, Birthday Party, Suicide, Skids, Scars, Simple Minds, Postcard bands and Wake, as well as Crass, Swans, Virgin Prunes, Nico and Divine.

Complementing these photographs and memories is an extraordinary array of rare souvenirs, such as concert posters, tickets, set lists, autographed material, interviews, tour/diary pages, contracts, t-shirts and live tapes. The book brings together rare and unpublished material in a comprehensive yet accessible volume.

With over 500 pages, and 2,000+ images, it's a real doorstopper whopper of a book - and we have one copy for a lucky LG follower to win.

Just tell us your best gig memory, and I'll pull one name to win the prize.
