On July 3, 1999, at the age of 46, Morphine frontman Mark Sandman collapsed on stage in Rome and was pronounced dead of a heart attack shortly after.
Morphine didn’t, and still don’t, sound like any other band. Part of it was their unusual lineup, consisting of Dana Colley’s baritone saxophone, Billy Conway’s drums, and Sandman’s homemade twostring slide bass, creating what Sandman dubbed “low rock.”
Journey of Dreams is the definitive tale of a thrilling musical journey cut tragically short, featuring interviews with surviving Morphine members and many of the musicians inspired by the Morphine legacy today.
Doors: 1.45pm | Unreserved Seating
