London 1977: Daniel Treacy drops out of school, bored to death. Thanks to a few pounds sterling, lent to him by his parents, he records a few songs with friends and sends the finished single to the legendary radio DJ John Peel, who is immediately thrilled – the Television Personalities are born ..

In the turbulent life of Daniel Treacy we meet Jimmy Page, Bob Marley, Alan McGee, David Gilmour, Wham!, Nico and Kurt Cobain. Dreamworld is the very real, very crazy story of a genius in music history whose importance is not infrequently compared to that of Mark E. Smith of The Fall. Enriched with plenty of scene and period colour from British pop from the 1960s to the present, “Dreamworld” tells of all the ups and downs of a legend who once ironically (but quite rightly) described himself in an interview as the “Godfather of Indie Pop”.

The English translation by David Marshall is published with a completely revised colour picture section and numerous illustrations.
