I’ve been writing the goddam thing for two years… yes, admittedly intermittantly! It seemed like a good idea at the time; collate all the info I have on all these bands that have breathed life (however briefly) into the music scene on the North Wales coast. Put it all into some semblance of order for your reading pleasure.
What I didn’t realise was the amount of information I actually had, and the endless numbers of new avenues I opened up when I sought new info.
The starting point was easy, and the bulk of significant events from 1976 to 2003 are done, edited and locked down – all 187 pages of it..!!! So I can guarantee you it’ll be a detailed, and hopefully good read.
There have been a couple of notable absentees who have ignored requests for info or thoughts or contributions, so they may be misrepresented in the book; but I guess that’s their perogative, and the vast majority of people have been extremely helpful as I tried to piece together their histories.
This Patch of Land has a publishing deal in place and I’ve promised myself to finish it as soon as possible…
Coming to an Amazon bookstore near you next spring…!!!!!
