"Runrig" are a phenomenon. The biggest live attraction in their native country, their unique brand of Gaelic rock has brought them platinum record sales, the best-selling Scottish video of 1990 and an increasingly high profile in England, Europe and America. Their fans, whose depth of allegiance is legendary, have ensured that every "Runrig" tour for the past five years has been a sellout. But they are no teenage pop sensations. The band has been in existance for 18 years, from their days as a rough and ready Skye ceilidh ensemble, through pioneering years at the cutting edge of the Gaelic revival to today's supergroup status. This biography of the band, produced with their co-operation, should be of interest to "Runrig" fans. More than a celebratory souvenir, it is illustrated with photographs and mementoes from band members' personal collections. The book tells the "Runrig" story in detail - the triumphs and disasters, comedy and tragedy along the way. Through many interviews with politicians, pop stars, academics, media executives and the band members themselves, it also axamines the cultural importance of a group which has not only brought the language and history of Gaeldom to an immense audience, but has helped young Gaels find pride in their identity.
