Fatal Shore : the movie
Phil Shoenfelt was born in Bradford, England, in December 1952.
After colliding with the London punk scene in the mid-1970s, he
moved to New York where he lived and played in several bands,
such as Khmer Rouge, and was active on the downtown Manhattan
arts scene. Returning to London in 1984, he continued making music
until encroaching heroin addiction brought a temporary halt to
all such activity. Finally kicking the habit after eleven years,
he embarked upon a solo career and in 1995 moved to Prague, where
he currently lives. In recent years he has produced several CDs
of his music on various independent labels: solo; with his band
Cross; with the Berlin-based Australian group Fatal Shore;
and a new performance project, The Bruce Wellie Band.
Junkie Love is Shoenfelt's second book.
His first, a collection of his poetry and song lyrics entitled
The Green Hotel, came out in 1998.
