Never really my thing but they were okay at the time if you were on enough drugs:

I read a review if this jointly-written memoir:
https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/mar/25/you-know-what-you-could-be-by-mike-heron-and-andrew-greig-review

Joe Boyd's book White Bicycles has an interesting account of ISB, including their disastrous Woodstock appearance, and the Scientology episode.

I regret not going to see U at the roundhouse - "A surreal parable in song and dance"

I loved their music from the day I bought their first LP. Then 5000 Spirits came out and totally blew me away. It was genius but with an obviously very wry sense of humour.

Still love listening to their music.

Sounds as if the book could be an interesting read. And then there's the BBC(?) documentary lurking on YouTube.

I was never into any drugs of any sort but I always loved The Incredible String Band's really unique and atmospheric sound and images which their music evoked. Today....some 50 years on...their sound still brings back memories of college, music and good friends ( SOME of whom DID partake in the drugs scene) .

"Seasons they change while cold blood is raining........." The tune for 'Eternal Circle' has so etched itself into my brain that I use it for a version of 'Alison Gross' which has 8-line verses rather than the more common 4-line. It's so wonderfully eerie!

I've read the book. I thoroughly recommend it, for Mike Heron's part of the book. It is perhaps THE most evocative account of coming-of-age in the 1960s I've ever read. It's a real shame it's so short. Andrew Grieg's part makes up most of the book, and while it's readable and interesting, it's a bit pretentious: he tries to be clever too much.
