Whether topping the charts, as they did in 1972 with their album ‘Fog On The Tyne’, revamping the title track rap-style with local soccer superstar Paul Gascoigne for a Number 2 single in 1990 or packing their home town’s City Hall to the rafters they’ve done every Christmas since time immemorial, they display a lack of pretention rare in the rock world.Fog On The Tyne – The Official History Of Lindisfarne tells their story from their birth in the union of two struggling 1960s acts through their first hit single ‘Meet Me On The Corner’, playing festivals, town halls and colleges with a then-unknown Genesis to the stresses of success that pulled the original quintet apart.

It charts the members’ activities in the wilderness years before their comeback hit, ‘Run For Home’, and their subsequent tours and releases.Dave In Hill, a musicologist, long-time fan and Lindisfarne’s press agent, had completed most o the research for the book when singer and song-writer Alan Hull died suddenly in 1995. The future of the band was never in doubt, however, and Lindisfarne play on today by public demand with founder members Rod Clements and Ray Laidlaw the backbone of a line-up that aims to write yet another chapter to the already legendary story.In addition to band members past and present, Hill interviews producers, DJs, fans and fellow musicians to get the true flavour of a band that epitomise their native Newcastle as certainly as Alan Shearer or the local Brown Ale.Originally published in 1998 with photographs from the band’s archives, this Kindle version revives the text of the out of print original, and brings it up to date with new text by the author based on new input from Ray Jackson, Ray Laidlaw and Rod Clements.
