Limited edition 200 page hardback book containing front & back covers for Robert Pollard's 100 studio albums
Notes: On April 7th 2017, Guided by Voices released August By Cake, a double album. For anyone who knows the band this isn't necessarily a newsworthy event. The band and its leader are extremely prolific and release multiple albums every year. What made this one special, what made it historic, was that it marked the 100th studio album release for Robert Pollard.

It is arguable as to whether any other artist has released that much music. What we know for sure is that no other artist has released 100 studio albums with every one of them on vinyl.

This book contains the front and back covers for all 100 albums. Less a testament to Pollard's extensive career and more a study in album art, the book is a large format (12" x 12") hard cover document containing over 200 pages printed to the edge.

Limited to 1000 copies worldwide.

1000 Record Covers (hardback book)
Cat: 661777 Rel: 04 Sep 17
Hardback book with 1000 of the best record covers from the 1960s to 1990s
Notes: Record covers are a sign of our life and times. Like the music on the discs, they address such issues as love, life, death, fashion, and rebellion. For music fans the covers are the expression of a period, of a particular time in their lives. Many are works of art and have become as famous as the music they stand for Andy Warhol's covers, for example, including the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground.

This edition of "Record Covers" presents a selection of the best rock album covers of the 60s to 90s from music archivist, disc jockey, journalist, and former record-publicity executive Michael Ochs' enormous private collection. Both a trip down memory lane and a study in the evolution of cover art, this is a sweeping look at an underappreciated art form.

252 page hardback book celbrating over 100 years of photography in the Caribbean
Notes: This book celebrates over 100 years of photography in the Caribbean. From calypso kings to Vodou priests, revolutionaries to dictators, colonialism to independence, slave trade to tourist paradise - the many uses and abuses of the Caribbean are vividly captured here.

The image of the Caribbean is as much a creation of the outsider as it is the complex identity of its people, a melting pot of races created out of the participants of the 400 year slave trade - enforced Africans, indigenous Caribbeans and their colonisers - French, Spanish, Dutch, English.

From luscious and beautiful backdrop of tourism and hedonist retreat, to colonial outpost and revolutionary threat within North America's backyard, the complex identity of the Caribbean stands at the intersection of tourism, the detritus of the slave trade, the decline of colonialism and the region's tropicality.

The regions politics span an almost constantly changing path of ideas, radicalism and revolutionaries - from Castro's Cuba and Michael Manley's Jamaica, to the violent right-wing dictatorships of Haiti's Francois 'Papa Doc' Duvalier and the Dominican Republic's Rafael Trujillo.

The hundreds of fascinating and unique photographs featured here illustrate more than one hundred years of Caribbean history, culture and industry as well as the subsequent diaspora of its people to America, England, Canada and elsewhere.

Introduction by Paul Gilroy. Edited by Stuart Baker.

Paul Gilroy is the author of There Ain't No Black in the Union Jack: The Cultural Politics of Race and Nation (1987), The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness (1993), Black Britain - A Photographic History (2004) amongst others.

A Crackup At The Race Riots (paperback book)
Cat: 487054 Rel: 22 Apr 13
A crackup at the race riots paperback 172 pages
Notes: The original Ritalin kid, Harmony Korine burst on the scene with Kids, a film so gritty and unsettling in its depiction of teen life that it was slapped with an NC-17 rating and banned in some theaters across the country. In some ways, the media frenzy over the rating overshadowed the harrowing portrait of teenagers destroying their lives and the then twenty-one-year-old screenwriter who created them. "Whether you see the movie as a masterpiece or as sensationalism," wrote Lynn Hirshberg, "the movie is relentless and brilliant and extremely disturbing. It's powerful-both steel-eyed and sexy; horrifying and captivating."

Now, in this first book of fictional set pieces, Korine captures the fragmented moments of a life observed through the demented lens of media, TV, and teen obsession. Korine reinvents the novel in this highly experimental montage of scenes that seem both real and surreal at the same time. With a filmmaker's eye and a prankster's glee, this bizarre collection of jokes, half-remembered scenes, dialogue fragments, movie ideas, and suicide notes is an episodic, epigrammatic lovesong to the world of images. Korine is the voice of his media-savvy generation and A Crack-Up at the Race Riots is the satiric lovechild of his dark imagination.

68-page short story with accompanying 60 minute Rapoon CD
Notes: Robin Storey, best known for his musical avatar Rapoon, has written his first book, a 68 page short story about a group of characters navigating an unfamiliar and changing world. A Pale Blue Door takes place in the past, the present and the future, and may involve time travel. The people in the story are trying to live their lives as best they can, but a mysterious spaceman floats in and out of view, affecting them in different ways, and never quite touching the ground. A Pale Blue Door is a tightly written, well paced tale that reveals its secrets slowly. Robin Storey's prose is concise and economical, engaging and seductive. The book begs to be read again and again. Accompanying the book is a 60 minute Rapoon CD, also titled A Pale Blue Door. The compositions utilise recordings of stars, manned space missions, radio signals and emissions made available through NASA's official website. There are also field recordings made on the marshlands of the Solway Firth in Cumberland.

Deluxe flexibound 10th anniversary edition
Notes: New 10th anniversary edition on Soul Jazz Books/Soul Jazz Records of this now classic large format deluxe book - the definitive photography book and essential guide to Jamaican Dancehall in the 1980s featuring 100s and 100s of amazing photographs - all with accompanying text, interviews and biographies.

'Dancehall' is an essential reference book for anyone interested in Reggae and captures a previously unseen era of musical culture, fashion and lifestyle in stunning, vibrant colour.

Dancehall is a culture that encompasses music, fashion, drugs, guns, art, community, technology, and more. Born in the 1950s out of the neighbourhood soundsystems of Kingston, Dancehall grew to its height in the 1980s before a massive influx of drugs and guns made the scene too dangerous for many. Today Dancehall remains at the centre of Jamaican musical and cultural life. From its roots in Kingston in the 1950s to its heyday in the 1980s, Dancehall conquered the globe spreading to the USA, UK, Canada, Japan, Europe and beyond.

In the early 1980s Jamaica was in the throws of political and gang violence - photographer Beth Lesser ventured where few other dared and this book is a never-before-seen record of the exciting, dangerous and vibrant world of Dancehall.

Living in Jamaica in the late 70s and early 80s she photographed and documented a cultural explosion as producers, singers, DJs and soundsystems who all made a living out of the slums of Kingston. With unprecedented access to the incredibly vibrant music scene during this period, Beth Lesser's photographs are a unique way into a previously hidden part of Jamaican culture.

128 page paperback book by Quintron, with drawings by Miss Pussycat
Notes: This is the first book from New Orleans organist and inventor, Quintron: a multi-layered tome that pays tribute to the perilous world of devoted musical road-dawgs. The setting is Europe, but the book is just as much about the myriad illusions of American identity. A not-so-glamorous life in rock gets pulled apart to reveal vivid blood vessels running beneath the obvious. The tales are funny and thrilling-and mostly true. Someone almost dies on every page!

Renowned puppeteer Panacea Theriac (aka Miss Pussycat) has contributed drawings throughout. Foreword by novelist and psychoanalyst Timothy Lachin.

"If Dr. Frankenstein were working with raw material from Madame Curie, Delia Derbyshire, James Brown, and Wilhelm Reich, the result might be something like Quintron. Underground inventor, composer, record maker, impresario, and performer par excellence. There is nothing and no one like him and this is his first book and it's a gas!" - Ian Svenonious

Hardback book covering a dramatic 8 day period in the career of the grunge band Nirvana
Notes: The dramatic eight days covered in this book, from November 27 through December 4, 1989, represent a turning point for Nirvana. In this brief period, the young band goes from breaking up in Rome to winning over the influential music press in London at Sub Pop's LameFest UK showcase, setting the stage for their imminent popularity.

On November 27, 1989, when Pavitt and business partner Jon Poneman arrived to meet the band in Rome, they were almost finished with a grueling six week tour of Europe. Although determined to promote their grungy, riff-heavy debut album, Bleach, their travels with fellow Sub Pop act Tad had left them exhausted. Providing label support, Pavitt and Ponemon did their best to revive the spirits of a frustrated and downcast Kurt Cobain, who then managed to continue to London where Nirvana played the biggest and most important show of their career to date.

LameFest UK, held at the 2,000-capacity Astoria Theatre, featured three Seattle Sub Pop acts: Nirvana, Tad and popular headliners Mudhoney. Although Nirvana opened the show, their heart-pounding performance won over the crowd as well as the powerful British press, who went on to proclaim that Nirvana was, "Sub Pop's answer to The Beatles." It was then that the world's attention began to focus on the band that would become the biggest rock act of their generation.

180 page paperback book on the adventures of Sal Maida, member of Roxy Music & Sparks
Notes: HoZac Books is proud to present Four Strings, Phony Proof, and 300 45s, written by SAL MAIDA, one of the most interesting 1970s rock figures you just don't know enough about. As a member of TWO such integral and ground-breaking '70s bands, ROXY MUSIC and SPARKS, not to mention NYC glam/power pop impresarios MILK 'N COOKIES, as well as studio work with the RUNAWAYS and Robert Calvert's post-Hawkwind solo material, it's no secret that Maida was in the right place at the right time, more times than we can count. His first book is presented here for the first time, along with his stash of personal unpublished/unseen photographs (including meeting Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Mick Jagger in 1969) on his first of many trips to the UK in the late 1960s, as well as many bands he witnessed in their embryonic states just as the monumental shift in music was taking place at the end of the psychedelic era. From his intricately-detailed stories about growing up in Little Italy's protected confines, and his far-ahead-of-the-curve craze for record "collecting" before that was even a concept, this book takes you on a ride through Martin Scorsese's mob territory (they grew up only a few blocks apart) and how it's inescapable soundtrack influenced him deeply, as well as the unbeaten paths deep within the music-obsessed trenches we all love so well.

Sal Maida's laid-back personality and his dextrous musical adaptability ensured he'd be in high demand once his chops were in place, and Four Strings, Phony Proof, and 300 45s solidifies his incredible knack for catching a rare opportunity every time it came across his path. His stories are nothing short of fascinating glimpses into a far-gone era, even to those of us with extensive piles of punk history books will rejoice at hearing. Watching a young, pre-X Exene Cervenka and a "punk groupie" Farrah Fawcett Minor getting kicked out a Rick Derringer show in early 1977, which led to them becoming close friends and roommates, or Tom Waits punching out a cop in Sal's defence in an LA diner, or seeing David Bowie perform an acoustic set with Mick Ronson in 1971 to a small room of people, it all has to be read to be believed, as well as all the other incredibly eye-opening tales contained therein. Maida just happened to be in so many places when so many historic events transpired it will quickly make the reader green with envy. Maida's amazing experiences straddled the line between mainstream 60s pop music, 70s proto-punk, and early New Wave like few others have, and he's still luckily at it today, even recently touring with the likes of Mary Weiss of the SHANGRI-LAS, who personally wrote the back cover blurb on this book. Four Strings, Phony Proof, and 300 45s is the key to those lost tales of rock 'n' roll adventure, and we are very excited to finally share it with you, not to mention the last section of the book where Sal meticulously lists his 300 essential 45rpm singles, all with riveting footnotes sure to send you into a obsessive frenzy. Forward by Lenny Kaye. 180 pages.

Large format (12" x 12") plexi-bound deluxe book, 180 pages with amazing collection of record sleeves
Notes: Soul Jazz Records are proud to present this amazing collection of sleeves from the deepest, deepest jazz music ever - compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records).

This is a unique collection of cover artwork of revolutionary jazz music between 1965-83. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and the civil rights movement of the 1960s loom large as self-determination, economic power and musical freedom led to jazz artists finding new paths - both musical and economic.

Years before the D-I-Y cultural revolution of punk, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, the Art Ensemble of Chicago and others 'took control' of their own work by recording, releasing and distributing their own music themselves.

The record sleeves of this era are as iconic and historically unique as the music itself and a striking reflection of the time; pre-desktop publishing, pre-internet these small-run (sometimes as low as 500 copies), self-made sleeves are graphically bold and radical.

'Freedom, Rhythm and Sound' is the first ever collection of this fascinating goldmine of album art, which represents the first wave of inspired independent production within popular music.

'Freedom, Rhythm and Sound' includes a large introduction contextualising the music and artwork as well as features on many of the people involved. Alongside the musicians mentioned above these include Rashied Ali, Steve Reid, Mary Lou Williams, Horace Tapscott, Lloyd McNeil, Tribe, The Last Poets, The Pharoahs, Philip Cohran, Black Artists Group and many others.

Headman aka Robi Insinna: 6 Album Artbook (hand-numbered book + MP3 download code)
Cat: 548223 Rel: 29 Sep 14
Notes: Headman/Robi Insinna's Artbook Album '6' comes together with '6' digital album. It is a mix of a Fanzine and an Artbook. The outside is screenprinted 1c, the inside is 2c. Every cover is individual, so every book isAa one off art piece. The Book comes in a envelope also screenprinted on the outside. It includes a free album download code on the inside. On each page of theAbook there are Robi's images and some stills from the "Work" video. It's all designed by Robi himself.
Artist, producer and DJ Robi Insinna aka Headman released his first album 'It Rough' in 2001. He has also released tracks as 'Manhead' and remixed the likes of Roxy Music, Gossip, Franz Ferdinand , Richard Fearless, Nitzer Ebb, The Units, Unknown Cases, Gina X and Klein & M.B.O. The new album "6" feels like the conclusion of the music he has been putting out over the years. There are many collaborations on the album, with friends and artists he has worked with over the years.
Featuring on the album are Brassica, The Emperor Machine, Red Axes, David Shaw, Sam from Gramme, Rosie from hot new Berlin Act Ballet School, Brassica, Bozzwell and Tara from It Rough fame!
The album release comes accompanied by a Fanzine like Art Book with a download code for the album, there will be 2 x 12" vinyls together with the digital and CD release. The concept is further developed in the video for the first vinyl EP which is directed by Robi and has been premiered on THUMP/VICE TV. It's a fusion of art, fashion and music, the 3 things that in Robi's eyes should always go together. VIDEO:
'6' is quite an eclectic album with a strong grounding in electronica whilst also staying true to the previous output of Robi and Relish Recordings. Some tracks can sound more like post punk ESG influenced, some more like pre-detroit machine funk, and some of the vocal tracks have a more pop sensibility!
The album was produced with loads of analog equipment which gives that organic feel, but Robi always stresses that he does not want to be just Retro, but take the best from the past and use it together with the technologies from now to create something modern.
Style is always something very important for his projects, the use of old synths, guitar pedals, tape delays, drum machines or emulations, and old Vintage gear was essential to create a vintage / classy sounding album, which is also reflected in the art book and the video. The video is filled with references from the past, late 70's 80's and 90's but again with a style and taste that makes it very modern.

Notes: 'I Ain't Mad at Ya' by Owen Broomfield (aka Hulk) is a document of the social, cultural and political realities of growing up in the 60's/70's, as a black youth on the Aston/Handsworth border.

Owen exposes the issues faced by the black, predominately African-Caribbean, community and the daily racism they faced in school, on the streets and in the workplace. He then takes us through his seminal years of growing up, from the physical fights with white racists to the battle of wills with teachers and sports coaches. But the book really comes into its own when Owen writes about his three constant companions and passions: sport, music and his family.

Owen excelled at a number of sports and could have been a professional basketball player if fate (and a rehearsal) hadn't interfered. Instead he turned to music, which came naturally to him, and for a few fleeting years was part of an extraordinary movement in Birmingham's and indeed the UK reggae scene.

He vividly brings to life some of the musicians, characters and hustlers of Handsworth and the venues where they plied their trade, giving a voice to these lost and hidden bands, encouraging the reader to discover them. As an added bonus, the discographies at the end of each chapter are incredibly deep and will offer even the most knowledgeable reggae lover something to discover.

The book's central theme is of Owen's spiritual journey and of the love he shares for his mom Gladys, a formidable but loving presence through his life, Dad Hartnel, and brother Lewis as well as a dizzying cast of relatives.

'I Ain't Mad at Ya' offers a rare insight into Birmingham's black community and shines a light on the incredible amount of black music culture produced in the vibrant suburb of Handsworth and the role its musicians and entrepreneurs have played in shaping and influencing popular music in the UK.

250 page paperback book detailing the life of musician Jackson C. Frank
Notes: The story of Jackson C. Frank is tragic. The victim of a school fire in his youth, struggling with homelessness and mental illness throughout his life, half-blinded in old age before his death in 1999, Frank met continuous obstacles. And yet he enjoyed a shining moment with the release of Jackson C. Frank on Columbia Records in 1965. The album would go on to be seen as one of the greatest folk albums of the decade - maybe of all time - and its opening track "Blues Run the Game" has become a standard covered by hundreds.

Jim Abbott's book is the result of years of research piecing together evidence, relations and apocryphal stories from Frank's life. It is also part memoir, as Abbott cared for Frank through the final decade of his life. Their friendship was fraught with difficulties, which Abbott portrays with the honesty of a journalist. In doing so, he draws a portrait of a uniquely gifted songwriter, blessed with talent and besotted by demons. At 250 pages, Abbott's memoir shows a flawed and caring individual whose struggle was best depicted in his songs.

Following the release of Jackson C. Frank: The Clear, Hard Light of Genius, Ba Da Bing will release three volumes of Jackson C. Frank: The Complete Recordings in early 2015, compiling work from throughout his life, including unreleased material.

272 page paperback book which chronicles the career of director Curtis Harrington
Notes: A charming, often barbed observation of the evolution of American mainstream filmmaking over the course of its first century, this memoir chronicles the unusual, multidecade career trajectory of Curtis Harrington. Conveyed in a witty and campy style, it follows the strange arc of a man who created avant-garde films as part of Kenneth Anger's inner circle, directed critically acclaimed and cult adored horror films like Night Tide and Games, and then descended down the "slippery slope" of television work by directing episodes of Charlie's Angels and Dynasty.

As a fast paced view of Harrington's journey through the kaleidoscope of the movie business, it acts alternately as a personal memoir and cultural history from a veteran of the entertainment business. As Harrington was living as a gay man in Hollywood, the book additionally gives a rare peek into the hidden world of what was then an elite subculture. Doubling as both a serious study of film aesthetics and a gossipy tell-all, this truly unique look at the Hollywood dream includes an unlikely cast of characters, including Dennis Hopper, Christopher Isherwood, Shelley Winters, Marilyn Monroe, Stanley Kubrick, and Aaron Spelling, as it reveals a portrait of the machinations of the film and television business.

Curtis Harrington was a film and television director whose work included experimental films, horror films, and episodic television. He was a close associate of groundbreaking cult film pioneer Kenneth Anger and is considered one of the forerunners of New Queer Cinema.

The book includes a mid section of black and white photographs.

Book of song lyrics from selected works of songwriter Simon Joyner
Notes: For twenty-five years, Nebraska songwriter Simon Joyner has crafted haunting, honest songs about the unsettled dust of lovers and strangers. A pioneer of the Omaha music scene, Joyner has earned the praises of Conor Oberst, Beck, Gillian Welch, John Peel, John Darnielle, and more. As Dennis Callaci explains in his heartfelt foreword, Joyner has spent those years and earned those praises for songs about the "sorrow and southbound turns" of "the put-upon, the tortured, builders of arcs."

Only Love Can Bring You Peace is the first selection of Simon Joyner's lyrics (assembled and edited by Simon and his wife Sara) to appear in book form, showcasing the images and characters of over 15 albums, EPs, and rare releases. It also features two interviews with Joyner (from Aquarium Drunkard [2015] and Circumstantial Evidence [1996]), rare liner notes, and illustrations from over a dozen guest starring friends.

Whether you're new to Joyner's work, or you've had his songs stuck in your head since 1992, this book serves as a sturdy companion to what Callaci calls "the grass, branch and bone of a lifetime."

200 page photography book
Notes: The first book by Detroit Artist and Photographer Nick Jaskey. Signs of Life is over 200 colour pages perfect bound in an edition of 535. Self-published and printed in Michigan.

Signs of Life is a visual autobiographical journey through the city of Detroit, where Nick Jaskey lives and works. For the past 15 years, Nick has been taking fragmented portraits of the streets where he grew up.

These images capture humour, abstraction, architecture and landscapes that inform the viewer of the narrative that unfold in these neighbourhoods.

The collection of photos in "Signs of Life" are an ode to the beauty and simplicity found in a city that has found alternative ways of communication.

As a result, the hands of many are layered, and involved and full of humanity.

The images collected in here explore the fact that we as humans are a product of our environment, and our environment is a product of us... a civilization gone awry.

384 page soft cover book with 16 page colour insert
Notes: Starting in 1981 via MINOR THREAT's revolutionary call to arms, the clean and positive straight edge hardcore punk movement took hold and prospered during the 1980s, earning a position as one of the most durable yet chronically misunderstood music subcultures. Straight edge created its own sound and visual style, went on to embrace vegetarianism, and later saw the rise of a militant fringe. As the "don't drink, don't smoke" message spread from Washington, D.C., to Boston, California, New York City, and, eventually, the world, adherents struggled to define the fundamental ideals and limits of what may be the ultimate youth movement.

TONY RETTMAN traces the story of straight edge from adolescent origins to enduring counterculture via fresh first-hand accounts from the clear and alert members of Minor Threat, SS DECONTROL, YOUTH OF TODAY, DYS, SLAPSHOT, UNIFORM CHOICE, 7 SECONDS, STALAG 13, JUSTICE LEAGUE, CHAIN OF STRENGTH, NO FOR AN ANSWER, INSTED, GORILLA BISCUITS, JUDGE, BOLD, PROJECT X, LARM, BROTHERHOOD, SHELTER, H2O, HALF OFF, RESURRECTION, RAID, STRIFE, EARTH CRISIS, VEGAN REICH, MINDSET, STOP AND THINK, MOUTHPIECE, FLOORPUNCH, TEN YARD FIGHT, MENTAL, FUCKED UP, TRIAL, HAVE HEART, CLEAR, THE GEEKS, and many others. 384-page softcover book with 16-page colour insert.
