Seven Day Fool – Jason Disley Reviewed

Seven Day Fool is the debut novel by Torquay based, Manchester born, writer and poet Jason Disley. I met Disley a few years back via FaceBook when I stumbled upon a ‘friend’ posting several poems. I was instantly engaged, as his words were soulful and moved like jazz music, a real modern day Beat poet as legend Allen Ginsberg.
In the winter of 1989, I was privileged and honoured to interview Danny Rampling, for my then fanzine, Positive Energy of Madness. It was about two weeks after he had closed his ground-breaking club Shoom. In my eyes at the time, and even today, the end of Shoom was Acid House’s equivalent to The Jam breaking up at the end of 1982. As Shoom, like the Woking Wonders, meant so much to a lot of people. Personally, I found Shoom inspiring, beautiful and wonderful. I was very late to the Shoom party, yet I was welcomed with opened arms, moving, truly moving as I would dance the night away with a beaming smile on my face.
