Book about UK indie band The Pocket Gods. Charting their 20 years of failing to make it to the big time despite high profile champions, and Guinness World Records. It also explores frontman Mark Christopher Lee’s struggles with mental health and obsession with all things paranormal including UFOs.
Movie coming to Amazon Prime Summer 2019 featuring The Pocket Gods.
This book charts the highs and lows of being in an unsigned indie band. From being discovered by the late John Peel and recording sessions for BBC Radio 1 and Radio 6, to playing gigs to one man and his dog in dubious London pubs. It captures the sights, sounds and smells of an up and coming indie band. It also explores Mark’s relationship with the paranormal and the “weird” unexplainable things that have happened in his rock and roll journey. It’s like Spinal Tap meets the X Files but with better snacks. Mark Whitby from Dandelion Radio has described the book as; “A tale from the far more interesting backwaters of modern music, with Mark and his band fighting to survive within the swirling evolutionary gloop. It’s Mark’s honesty that stands out. It reaches out and grabs you by the throat wringing fascinating observations out of every line whether you like them or not”
