2016 re-release; originally released for RSD 2015. Dimensions: 23.3 x 2.8 x 15.3 cm. Paperback, 506 pages. Includes exclusive download track. View from a Hill is the story of Mark Burgess, singer and founding member of legendary Manchester cult heroes The Chameleons. Mark takes us through four decades of pop culture as he charts The Chameleons' development, as well as their cruel treatment at the hands of a corrupt music industry. Amidst intrigue in the Middle East, expeditions in search of the Loch Ness Monster, and acid trips that inspired the band's language and sound, there are countless music industry anecdotes that will make your jaw drop. Moving and hilarious by turns, View from a Hill is a highly entertaining rollercoaster ride of a rock memoir. Previously only published in very limited print runs in 2010, this edition of Mark's autobiography represents the definitive version of the work. Completely revised and augmented by a full discography, Chameleons family tree, and an introduction by Karren Ablaze!, this book is a must for Chameleons fans everywhere.
