The East Neuk of Fife, Scotland, may seem like an unusual place for a musical revolution, but as this firsthand account reveals, there is more to the sleepy fishing villages and rolling fields, and a small community of musicians has crept up on the world. From psychedelic troubadours the Beta Band to the Billboard chart star KT Tunstall, acclaimed singer-songwriter James Yorkston, and the reigning monarch and lynchpin of the Fence Collective, King Creosote, this book plots the unique, intertwining tales of these Fifers from their schooldays to the present day. This story, full of personal anecdotes and exclusive interviews, provides an in-depth look at a unique collective of musicians who have experienced the extreme highs and the desperate lows of the music business and how a craggy outpost on the east coast of Scotland had a role in crafting talented artists.

About the Author:

Vic Galloway is a BBC Radio broadcaster and TV presenter whose radio programs have been broadcast for more than a decade on Radio 1, Radio Scotland, and 6 Music. His music journalism has appeared in a number of publications, including the Herald and the Times. He is also a musician and member of the Fence Collective.

Review:

'A remarkable insight into the pitfalls of the music industry - I'd go so far as to say it's essential reading for any young musician in Scotland thinking about trying to make a go of it - not least for the rude awakening it may offer before their dreams are shattered. But it also shows how success can be achieved against seemingly insurmountable odds' - the Scotsman 'A great read for any up and coming artist determined to make a go of it' - The Scots magazine 'DJ turned author Galloway does a superb job of documenting the lives of these artists, misfits and 'heads', not least because he is a Fife lad himself' - Mojo
