Add Your Knowledge To Uncut's Book of Revelations Here

As you might have discovered by now, this month's Uncut comes with a free book - The Uncut Book Of Revelations.

The Uncut Book Of Revelations is a compendium of the strangest, funniest rock trivia, brought together by the magazine's finest minds of a generation. The thing is, although we spent months putting this stuff together (take a look at "TEN NOISES MADE BY MICK JAGGER ON THE ROLLING STONES’ 1982 LIVE ALBUM STILL LIFE" and "TEN BANDS WHO SURPRISINGLY RECORDED JOHN PEEL SESSIONS" below), we're convinced there are plenty more great lists that you, dear reader, can come up with.

So, if you've been kept awake at night with some valuable nugget of rock arcana, or if you just want to share a list of your favourite bassists with the world, please add them to the comments box below. Don't hide your shite under a bushel, let's see your trivia now!
