About the Author

Ric Rawlins is a writer and digital producer. He worked as a music journalist for several years in London, where he produced the `world's first online music festival' for Artrocker and did live reviews for the Evening Standard. He now lives in Bath with his wife and cat, making videos for Send a Cow.

Ric first met SFA in Cardiff while they were making Dark Days/Light Years.


`Revolutionary, crazed and beautiful musical events and conversations, which originally happened through the medium of a cracked youthful version of the Welsh language in the mid-nineties, are presented here for the first time in quality English. Ric lifts the lid on these millennial events through comic re-enactments, cosmic speculations and passionate research - which sometimes hit on truths that are closer to what happened than what actually happened.'
- Gruff Rhys

`A joyful encapsulation of the band and their leaps of fuzzy logic.'
- Q Magazine

`This telling of the SFA tale exceeds expectations 4/5.'
- Mojo

`Intimate access to the Welsh outfit ... the results are highly entertaining.'
- Clash

`An essential read for anyone with the slightest of interest in the Welsh wonders.'
- Artrocker

`An enjoyable blast through the history of the band ... I managed to blitz through the story in an evening. A golden reminder of how important and influential SFA are and continue to be.'
- Something You Said

`Unreserved humour, nimble prose ... an amusing and (mis)informative read.'
- Joyzine

`Fantastic and thoroughly entertaining ... like the band's own career, `Rise of the Super Furry Animals' is a hilarious, charming and inspiring trip. I was genuinely gutted when I finished it.'
- Penny Black Music

`Magical, psychedelic, funny and brilliant.'
- Blackwell's Fiction

`Every page is full of ridiculous stories ... it's hard to put down.'
- Soft Concrete Magazine

`Captures something glorious about the band's creative energy ... written with the sardonic wit and dramatic hyperbole of a writer having a total blast.'
- Milky Tea Kid
