Description

At the age of 22, Spaceman Africa left his home town of Canberra, Australia, to travel the world - first stop, London. Over the following 20 years, Spaceman has had numerous funny experiences and some unfavourable mishaps that only now with the passing of time can he look back and laugh. Here, Spaceman shares twelve comical short stories from his time abroad and at home. From being propositioned whilst hitch-hiking in Germany, to writing postcards to random strangers from the Dublin phonebook and inventing a new sport in Peru, Spaceman Africa the Musical contains engaging and amusing tales and answers the question we're all dying to know - how did he get his name? For each story, Spaceman has composed and recorded a song, the result of which is the album Africa as in the Continent. In a musical style similar to Lou Reed and Bob Dylan, and with the lyrical cleverness of Flight of the Conchords and Tenacious D, Spaceman Africa the Musical will have you laughing and singing along to the catchy tunes long after you've read the book and listened to the songs. The album Africa as in the Continent now available for purchase at www.spacemanafricathemusical.com

Author Biography

Australian born, Spaceman Africa is a travel junkie who decided upon a legal name change after consuming a few too many beers in a Dublin pub, back in 2002. Spaceman has enjoyed writing about the funny encounters, adventures and mishaps that he's experienced from more than ten years travelling, including winning an online name-of-the-year poll in 2008. Spaceman is currently based in his home city of Canberra, working and saving money for his next trip abroad. Along with travel, writing has always been a significant pastime for Spaceman. He worked for six months as a journalist/editor for the Cochabanner magazine in Cochabamba, Bolivia. He's an alumnus and member of the travel writing Matador Creators Community and holds a certificate in copyediting and proofreading. 2018 will see Spaceman self-publish two books. Who's that Weirdo Dancing in the Corner? is a travel memoir of Spaceman's adventures travelling the world from 1997 to 2007. Spaceman Africa the Musical consists of a book of twelve of Spaceman's funniest stories, and an indie rock album featuring songs written and performed by Spaceman about the stories in the book.
