The true story of a teenage punk from Yorkshire, seemingly existing on a diet of cider, parties and loud music, rose to the top in the toughest sports.

Author and Chumbawamba guitarist, Boff Whalley tells the true story of how a teenage punk from Yorkshire, seemingly existing on a diet of cider, parties and loud music, rose to the top in the toughest of sports.

“Faster! Louder! is a great combination of different mad energy – punk and fell running. I knew nothing about the cult of fell running. Now I want to know more. The story has a unique take on music and running as a life force and is also a love letter to the fell running landscape.” Richard Jobson, The Skids

This is the fascinating story of how an unlikely and eccentric runner became, against all expectations, the British Champion. It’s a tale that focusses on the races that made up Gary Devine’s victorious 1990 season, while opening out to understand how the unruly, fearless ethos at the heart of punk could chime perfectly with the spirited, gutsy and dauntless root of mountain running; how the elements of surprise and daring are central to both. It’s a near-perfect underdog narrative, a drama that traces one boy’s life from ordinary schoolkid to extraordinary winner – all against a backdrop of alcohol, fights, arrests and extreme guitar noise.

“A stirringly evocative, riveting, hilarious, nostalgic, important book about two opposing worlds that aren’t so different after all.” Damian Hall, author and elite ultra-runner

“With the lifestyle Gary led, it’s amazing how the hell he was able to run races – never mind win so many. A bit of a wayward lad but I’m full of admiration for him – he did it his way!” Billy Bland, legendary fell runner

“A strange, exhilarating blast of a book, throbbing with energy and sweaty authenticity. FASTER! LOUDER! celebrates fell-running as it used to be, rough and untamed, through the story of a maverick hero whose remarkable athletic triumphs are achieved against a grubby backdrop of brawls and hangovers, squats and drug-busts, and very loud music.” Richard Askwith, author of ‘Feet In The Clouds’

“A most enjoyable look at fell running with a punk soundtrack and attitude. At school I was the one at the back of the pack sneaking off for a cig. Reading this book has made me wish it had been different. The challenge and exhilaration of the love of running in itself; the weather; the fells and the personal challenge – it all makes for a great read and I’m happy that Killing Joke may have been along for the ride.” Big Paul Ferguson, Killing Joke
