The Band's Music from Big Pink: A Novella

John Niven

John Niven graduated from Glasgow University in 1991 with a First Class Honours MA in English Literature. He toured and recorded as guitarist in The Wishing Stones - their sole LP Wildwood (Heavenly Records 1992) owes more a passing debt to the music of The Band - before becoming an A&R man and working with acts like Travis, Mogwai, and Sigur Ros. Over the years he has written about music, film and sport for publications like Word, FHM, Socialism, The Herb Garden and Mixmag. In 2003 he sold his first screenplay and co-wrote and directed the award winning short film ‘Tethered’ (British Film Council/Frozen Tundra Films.) Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
