Peter Ulrich thinks he got the ultimate fan trip―to play, record, and tour with his favourite band, Dead Can Dance. His memoir, Drumming with Dead Can Dance and Parallel Adventures, 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. Following his departure from the band, Peter 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 a fascinating slalom through the ups and downs of trying to pursue a vision through the music industry. He talks to author, film-maker and cultural commentator Juliet Jacques about his fascinating story.Buy tickets
