Dead Can Dance formed in their native Australia in 1981. The core of the band was (and is) Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard. When they relocated to England and settled in the east end of London named Isle of Dogs, they met drummer Peter Ulrich who joined the band. Drumming With Dead Can Dance & Parallel Adventures. A Memoir is Ulrich’s story about his time before, during and after Dead Can Dance. It is a treat to read, and it is a beautiful book.
