There were two prerequisites to reading this book for me.

In all fairness to him, Ferguson paints a good canvas that seeks to explain the careers, successes and even downfalls! He explains that the Yorkshire scene is quite widely encompassing and that a range of musicians from folk, to rock, to more classical artistes have been trained and influenced within the realms of the land of the white rose. Although Ferguson talks starkly about identity and working class roots, I personally would have like to have seen even more social referencing between the pages. Fair enough that singers and bands have been explained but sometimes more hidden truths can be found within the depths of songs and their biting satire.
The Artic Monkeys always did a nice turn in shady sarcasm, one-liners and contemporary culture referencing. So did Pulp, where the young, gifted and loaded often found themselves loathed rather than loved and admired when brought to lyrical ransom by Cocker and crew.
