Written with Kim Salmon’s full cooperation, Nine Parts Water, One Part Sand. Kim Salmon and the Formula for Grunge charts Kim’s journey from childhood in Perth through his many bands (The Scientists, the Surrealists, The Beasts of Bourbon) albums, tours, family upheavals, triumphs and disappointments through the eyes of his guitar student and biographer Douglas Galbraith. The book explores the forces that shaped his style to create an idiosyncratically Australian sound that sparked a worldwide music and cultural movement – Grunge. It’s a tribute to the lifelong pursuit of artistic mastery, and celebration of the growing international recognition for this unique Australian artist.
Nine Parts Water One Part Sand. Kim Salmon And The Formula For Grunge biography is out 9th November and will be launched at Memo Music Hall with performances from Shrimpwitch, Dave Graney & the MistLY, Kim Salmon & the Surrealists and Kid Congo Powers & The Near Death Experience.
