In the first Sikh biography to be published in this country, Suresh Singh tells the candid and sometimes surprising story of his father Joginder Singh who came to Spitalfields in 1949. Joginder sacrificed a life in the Punjab to work in England and send money home, yet he found himself in his element living among the infinite variety of people who inhabited the streets around Brick Lane. Born and bred in Spitalfields, his son Suresh became the first Punjabi punk, notably playing drums for Spizzenergi and touring with Siouxsie & the Banshees. The biography is accompanied by a selection of Sikh recipes, and illustrated with a rare archive of family photographs complemented by colour photographs of Suresh’s household today.
