Simon Barrow can now say that he has appeared on stage on a Sunday night at the London Palladium. No revolving stage, alas (you have to be a certain age to get that reference). Simon was launching his new book, Solid Mental Grace: Listening to the Music of Yes, at an event to celebrate 50 years of Yes. Sales were brisk, and orders have been arriving at Cultured Llama HQ from around the world. Despite one buyer’s complaint that we are not taking Euros because we are leaving the EU (not true – it’s just too complicated to add all currencies to our commerce app), we are able to deal with orders outside the UK if you send us a message via the Contact page.

Here’s more about the book:

How has the progressive rock band Yes survived 50 years of intense devotion and strong criticism? This book reconsiders the band’s musical creativity, variety and value, and highlights an artistic imagination in Yes’s finest moments that defies ready-made labels. It illustrates the capacity of honest musical appreciation to remake us, rather than simply to confirm our prejudices.

978-0-9957381-8-8. Cultured Llama. PB. 210×148mm. 232pp. March 2018. Curious Things. £12.00
