Bill Nelson is one of the most respected creative forces in the UK. He came
to prominence in the 1970s with his art-rock guitar band Be Bop Deluxe and later Red Noise.
He still releases a prolific amount of new music on various labels throughout the world.
Diary of a Hyperdreamer is his day-by-day diary in which he reflects on life, art, and
the nation. His unique perspective is fed by a lifetime's work creating and producing music,
photography, painting and video - pop, rock, film scores, television and ad themes, pop
videos, as well as soundscape and performance/video art.
Written from his home in a hamlet in North Yorkshire where he lives
with his Japanese wife, Emi, it includes reflections on his various
and diverse creative projects, mixed with philosophical and political
musings. It also includes homespun details of an ordinary domestic
life where he looks back at his time as a pop star, the best places
to get a haircut in York and, of course, mortality.
