Overview

Ulrich thinks he got the ultimate fan trip—to play, record, and tour with his favourite band, Dead Can Dance. His memoir details the early days, from signing with 4AD, recording their first album, then heading off on tour with the Cocteau Twins. There follow insights into the legendary period of the 4AD label of the 1980s; contributing to This Mortal Coil; guesting with Wolfgang Press, Pieter Nooten and Michael Brook, and Modern English; and touring the US for the first time in 1990. Following his departure from DCD, Ulrich remained close with Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, and his memoir tracks their parallel paths over the following decades. A must for fans of Dead Can Dance and the 4AD label, and at the same time, a fascinating slalom through the ups and downs of trying to pursue a vision through the music industry.

About the Author

Peter Ulrich thinks he got the ultimate fan trip—to play, record, and tour with his favourite band, Dead Can Dance, and to be part of the legendary 4AD label of the 1980s. From there, he went solo to pursue his own musical vision, embracing the support and influences of his mentors Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard. This, in turn, led to a collaboration with New York producer Trebor Lloyd and a huge range of musicians, which spawned a trilogy of albums released between 2013 and 2019, all the while continuing to attend DCD shows and cross paths with Perry and Gerrard. Peter Ulrich lives and works in the very centre of Norfolk, UK.
