Shaun Ryder sits himself down, with a double Remy Martin in one hand, while the curl of cigarette smoke wafts from the other.

There’s no disputing the attitude and he still sways with that familiar swagger.

Meet the hellraiser and extraordinaire frontman of the Happy Mondays.

He’s back with an autobiography, Twisting my Melon, which records his addictions, bankruptcy, violence and near-death experiences.

Ryder’s also been quietly crafting an album and plotting a series of solo gigs to support it.
