Porcupine Tree - Unauthorized Biography Coming This Year

Author Rich Wilson has announced that he's working on a new book titled "Time Flies: The Story Of Porcupine Tree". It is described as the first in-depth investigation into the Steven Wilson-fronted band and it's expected in late 2017. This is Rich Wilson's second book, following "Lifting Shadows, The Authorized Biography Of Dream Theater".

Here's a glimpse of the book's introduction to get an idea: "It's virtually impossible to imagine a more inauspicious, tottering live debut. The date was December 4, 1993 and Porcupine Tree ambled on to what can only loosely be described as a stage on the first floor of a pub in High Wycombe… frontman and guitarist Steven Wilson cut a shy figure, fleetingly glancing at the crowd, while appearing conscious that his guitar amplifiers were only supported by four upturned and perilously stacked beer crates."

A statement about the book reads: "'Time Flies' describes the genesis of Porcupine Tree from founder Steven Wilson's bedroom through their entire existence, reviewing their 17-year career and 10 studio albums. Drawing on original and archive interviews with band members, friends and people connected to Porcupine Tree, this unauthorized biography offers a perfectly complete critical look at arguably the UK's last great prog rock band."

The book will be available in two versions; the 300-page hardback Classic Edition will be presented in a choice of four different cover designs, while the Signature Edition will come in a presentation box, will be signed and numbered by the author and will include three previously unseen photographs which will be exclusive to the book.

By registering on the book's website, fans will be able to have their name printed in the book and buy the publication for a discount price.

This might be an interesting read. I have that Dream Theater book. It was very good.
