Small Town England paints a portrait of the energy and melancholy at the heart of Tim's generation, the inability to live for now and the feeling that something better is just around the corner?too young (just) to be baby boomers and too English and uncool to call itself Generation X. It's also a universal tale about dreams, ambitions, brass bands, cubs, rugby songs, football stickers, tractors, young love, and valve amplifiers connected up to cheap distortion pedals, set at a time of political change and pudding basin hair. Tim takes us through his first crushes, falling in love with the local beauty queen and an elusive Gallic beauty on a French exchange. His first attempts at getting drunk and trying to impress girls, forming bands which churned out endless numbers of rubbish songs, and trying to avoid deckings by the local hards. Tim and his equally hapless friends are gradually working towards breaking free of their childhoods and moving away from their roots. Life in this small town was a roller coaster of mundane happenings.
