Some Memories Never Die (Book)
- Album download bookmark included with each purchase.
Some Memories Never Die contains 22 chapters linked to 22 songs, each chapter a vignette drawn from author Jeff Lang’s 30-plus years of experience as a touring musician. By turn hilarious, poignant, irreverent and haunting, Lang’s writing takes you inside the life of an artist who has traveled the less-trodden path. The book will include a download for brand new recordings of all 22 songs included.
Jeff Lang reckons his memory is like a sieve, yet some things just stick. Memories of gigs past, where the pay was akin to blood money. Recollections on how the roads’ twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers, occasionally darkened by them too. Musings on recording, songwriting and travelling around. A journey kicked off by having fallen in love with sound. Shonky dealers. Diamond geezers. The hunt for a tone that turns your head. The late night mind-fog in some far-flung bed. Glad encounters and sad goodbyes. Some memories never die.
