Stench, Aroma, Smell, Haze and Fart might not have the sweetest nicknames in town, but these five have just finished their O Level school exams and are on a mission to take their fledgling band from a dream to reality, and get themselves a half decent gig. Songs are good, playing is getting better, Smell's voice is wicked, so what could possibly go wrong?
Aside from a bunch of tramps, smelly teens, the lead singer falling in love with the drummer, the National Front, and a double murder!
But this is 1976. It is not only a different decade, it is a different planet. A comedy at its heart, The Stink is about London, about growing up and about all the hurt and heartache, the fun, the laughter, the bad language and the tears that go with being sixteen.
Journey with these five wonderful young people as they battle racism, homophobia, family drama and violent criminals, and yet keep their humour, grow and learn and still fall over their own feet. And of course, write songs about everything.
If you were a teen back then, you will lap up the nostalgia. If you are a teen now, you will wish you had been there. Go on, pick up your guitar and jam with The Stink.
The Stink. It was what the seventies were all about!

About the Author
CC Hogan is a writer and old muso that loves nothing more than cuddling up with an idea, a glass of wine, a pot of hot coffee and chucking words around happily. Alright, he also just likes cuddling, but that is less interesting. He is a Londoner born and bred but dreams of a tiny cottage by the sea. At the moment he is buried in a world called Dirt, a huge fantasy that spans a thousand years and is a tale of love, war, family and dragons. Unsurprisingly, in the book can be found a cottage by the sea... CC also likes to write poetry and is trying to learn how to draw. He is always happy to answer questions, though the quality of answers may depend on time of day, wine quantity, full stomach, lack of money and so forth...
