Marmite Cowboy is a glimpse into the humorous and somewhat twisted mind of the Johnny Alien -- growing up in Tidza in Northern England, and his journey to the USA to live out the American Dream.
His clever choice of words engages all senses and paints a vivid picture of life's trials and tribulations from his perspective as a young man making the brave choice to leave his valley in England and travel to America, making his new home in the eclectic town of Northampton, Massachusetts in the Pioneer Valley. Northampton is a Mecca for art, music and counterculture, so of course, multi-talented Johnny Alien fit right in!
Tales of becoming a booking agent at a nightclub in Northampton to forming his band “The Big Bad Bollocks” playing Irish rockabilly music in the basements of night clubs, to tossing enormous ladies’ knickers a la the old Tom Jones concerts will have you laughing out loud and wanting more. An entertaining account of a true renaissance man who had the ‘bollocks’ to take risks & achieve his dreams!
