Biography

Active: 1980s-2010s
Country Of origin: England

Award-winning English science fiction and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock took a career detour in 1975 with the release of The New World's Fair, a dystopian concept album credited to Michael Moorcock & the Deep Fix. Moorcock, who sings and plays both guitar and mandolin, occasionally performed with the progressive rock outfit Hawkwind, and in 1974 was offered a one-off record deal by United Artists. The resulting album featured the members of Hawkwind, as well as a small army of '70s art rock denizens, including Steve Gilmore and Snowy White. Moorcock has also penned songs for Blue Öyster Cult and Spirits Burning, all of which were built around the characters and mythology of his novels. Roller Coaster Holiday, an alternate version of The New World's Fair, was released on the Voiceprint label in 2004. ~ James Christopher Monger~ Rovi
