The Tale Of Long Earth
Long Earth came together by a series of fortunate but unexpected coincidences. A bunch of musicians who just wanted to create and have fun. We originally just got together to jam and see what came about, things went well and so we realised that we had become "a band" and needed a name. Mike was a real fan of Terry Pratchett and suggested the name Long Earth and it stuck.
Mike Baxter (Keyboards) was a feature of the Glasgow music scene during the 1970s and 1980s, playing notably with Shoot The Moon, Glas Clas and Identity Crisis amongst many others.
