Some Memories Never Die – Book Launch Tour

Jeff Lang’s new book Some Memories Never Die is here!

“This is Jeff Lang’s guide to the often hilarious life of a jobbing musician. He lived these tales so you can laugh in comfort.”
Don Walker

“Jeff’s passion surges like an ocean, his humour glides through the torrent like a catamaran: Manned by a grinning feline. Please catch a ride.”
Tim Rogers

Jeff reckons his memory is like a sieve, “...yet some things just stick.”

Some Memories Never Die contains within its pages....

Memories of gigs where the pay was akin to blood money.

Reflections on how the road’s twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers, occasionally darkened by them too.

Musings on recording, songwriting, and touring around. A journey kicked off by falling in love with sound. Shonky Dealers.
Diamond geezers.

The hunt for a tone that turns your head.
The late-night mind-fog in some far-flung bed. Glad encounters and sad goodbyes.
Some memories never die.
Jeff Lang says....

“For Some Memories Never Die I wanted to connect recollections from the life I’ve lived to some of the songs I’ve made up along the way. I wasn’t looking to write a linear autobiography, with my life’s journey laid out in order of occurrence. More a series of stand- alone vignettes was what I had in mind. I wasn’t sure exactly how a good many of these tales could be connected to the songs I intended to include, as I don’t generally write autobiographical songs. But as I wrote down the varied reminiscences, certain stories seemed to go together and themes became apparent to me. Gradually it all seemed to find it’s form, and Some Memories Never Die is the end result.

“I decided to re-record all 22 songs that are included in the book’s text, and they come free via a download code, which is printed on a bookmark included with each copy.

“I’ll be hitting the road during 2021 to bring the book to everyone. Hope you enjoy it.”
