Info: Strange Boat - a new biography of Mike Scott

To the satisfaction of fans around the world, the definitive biography of Mike Scott & The Waterboys , Strange Boat , is now available through Gonzo Multimedia . This biography, written byIan Abrahams , was originally published in 2007, but this is a new edition revised and updated and contains a bonus for the album with Mike Scott Mr. Yeats, first published in R2 Rock N Reel . Strange Boat portrays the twisting and winding journeys Mike Scott (The Waterboys), describing the literary and spiritual references that fill your compositions and exploring the multitude of local cultures and that The Waterboys reflect on their recordings. Everything from their first forays in the Scottish music scene in the late 1970s, until the creation of a Big Music , which culminated with the single The Whole Of The Moon , through his Irish adventure that spawned the classic Fisherman's Blues . Its constantly restless creativity led him through a myriad of changes. With its rotating cast of troubadours at his side, Mike Scott created some of the most defining albums of an era - the 80s staggered by heartlands Celtic, reinvented himself as a rocker Electric in New York, and sought personal renewal in the quiet retreat of the Scottish Findhorn spiritual mountains. Mike Scott's life has been a story of continuous musical exploration with an evolving spirituality. That is what can be found in this publication written by Ian Abrahams and the hallmark of Gonzo Multimedia .
Ian Abrahams (born 1963) is a journalist and biographer freelance . In addition to this biography of Mike Scott already wrote Hawkwind - Sonic Assassins , and with Bridget Wishart , is to brief the history of the free festivals: Festivalized: Music, Poltics & The Alternative Culture . Writes forThe Guardian , The Independent , Bass Guitar among other publications.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
