Tony Hill`s Fiction
In the beginning
Tony Hill formed the seminal cult psychedelic/jazz/prog/hard rock band High Tide back in 1969 after playing with David Jones (Bowie) in a band called Torquoise. Tony left after about 9 months and formed High Tide with Simon House (violin), Pete Pavli (bass) and Roger Hadden (drums). The main problem with High Tide was they were a bit before their time and it seems that the world wasn't quite ready for the fuzz drenched, guitar 'n' violin progressesive onslaught that High Tide produced. But Tony's career goes back a little further than that....
His first band to release a single was The Answers in 1964 which Tony wrote (Just a fear) and has become a freak-beat classic among collectors. Tony went onto join U.S. garage noise merchants The Misunderstood who under different circumstances could of been huge. The band also featured Glen Ross Campbell who went on to form Jucy Lucy. Due to legal problems and other members of the band being drafted into the U.S. army, the band fell apart
At this point Tony went onto form High Tide. Sadly, High Tide officially only last for a couple of years after releasing two highly critical albums, 'Sea Shanties' and 'High Tide' on the Liberty/UA label. The band was made up by Tony on Guitar and Vocals, Pete Pavli - Bass, Simon House - Violin and Roger Hadden - Drums. There are many reasons why the band fell apart which I won't go into now but it is safe to say Tony and High Tide left a permanent mark on the genre of music we all call Prog/Psyche and Stoner (to a certain degree).
Fiction (Latin: fictum, "created") is any form of narrative which deals, in part or in whole, with events that are not factual, but rather, imaginary and invented by its author(s). Although fiction often describes a major branch of literary work, it is also applied to theatrical, cinematic, documental, and musical work. In contrast to this is non-fiction, which deals exclusively in factual events (e.g.: biographies, histories). Semi-fiction is fiction implementing a great deal of non-fiction, e.g. a fictional description based on a true story.
Plot, or storyline, is often listed as one of the fundamental elements of fiction. It is the rendering and ordering of the events and actions of a story. On a micro level, plot consists of action and reaction, also referred to as stimulus and response. On a macro level, plot has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Plot is often depicted as an arc with a zig-zag line to represent the rise and fall of action. Plot also has a mid-level structure: scene and sequel. A scene is a unit of drama-where the action occurs. Then, after a transition of some sort, comes the sequel-an emotional reaction and regrouping, an aftermath.
