Drumming with Dead Can Dance and Parallel Adventures

Ulrich recounts his experiences as drummer/percussionist with Dead Can Dance through the 1980s, contributor to This Mortal Coil, and guest on other 4AD recordings. After leaving DCD for family reasons, he tracks their parallel paths—DCD’s demises and rebirths; solo careers of Lisa Gerrard, Brendan Perry, and his own; Gerrard’s co-creation of the Gladiator soundtrack; and Ulrich’s collaboration with producer Trebor Lloyd and a host of artists from the New York scene. Packed with detail from the formative period of Dead Can Dance, a fan’s-eye view of the later years (with the advantage of a backstage pass), and a broad sweep through just about every corner of the wider musical landscape.
