Mike Heron & Andrew Greig - Tuning Into the 1960s

This singular book offers two harmonising memoirs of music making in the 1960s. Mike Heron for the first time writes vividly of his formative years, armed with a love of Buddy Holly, Fats Domino and Hungarian folk music. When asked to join Robin Williamson and Clive Palmer, The Incredible String Band are formed - and their wildly innovative, astounding music became indelibly linked with the latter Sixties. Andrew Greig was a frustrated provincial schoolboy when he heard their songs. It changed everything. Undaunted by a lack of experience and ability, he formed a band in their image. You Know What You Could Be will delight anyone who has loved The Incredible String Band; and their differing portraits of that hopeful, erratic and stubborn stumble towards the life that is ours will strike a chord with everyone.
