Andrew Weatherall: A Jockey Slut Tribute
Cat: 800802
 
Paperback book
Notes: Pre-order before 20 November 2020 Release date 10 December 2020 Andrew Weatherall was the acid house generation's most inspiring DJ and producer, renowned for his work on Primal Scream's epoch-defining 'Screamadelica' and his own bands Sabres Of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen. As a DJ he was peerless and unpredictable, helming club nights that played techno, rockabilly or music that "never knowingly exceeded 122 bpm."

Weatherall featured in seminal dance music magazine Jockey Slut many times during its lifetime. All his interviews from the publication are included within this tribute to The Guv'nor. Further articles cover the tenure of his professional life from the mid-80s to 2020. They include his beginnings at the influential Boy's Own fanzine, his DJ sets at landmark nights Shoom and Sabresonic, and the plethora of ventures he still had running including the Woodleigh Research Project, A Love From Outer Space and festival Convenanza.

Jockey Slut magazine ran from 1993 - 2004. The influential club culture publication was started by John Burgess and Paul Benney as a self published Manchester based fanzine. It became a monthly when it moved to London in 1999. Jockey Slut was notable for being more music-centric, left-field and irreverent than other dance music magazines. It also bagged some real exclusives during its tenure giving first ever interviews to The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk and The Avalanches.

Included in the 160 page, perfect bound book edited by founding Jockey Slut editor John Burgess is:

- All Andrew Weatherall's Jockey Slut interviews collated (1993-2004) including Weatherall Gets His Tats Out, I'm A Classic Underachiever, Two Lone Swordsmen and An Audience With... and more.
- Further new features and classic articles from Luke Una, Richard Norris, Kris Needs, Joe Muggs, Jim Butler, Mandi James, Lee Brackstone and more.
- Brand new 10,000+ word oral history of Andrew Weatherall's early years from Shoom & Screamadelica to Sabres of Paradise featuring interviews with Bobby Gillespie, Ed Simons, Danny Rampling, Justin Robertson, Andrew Innes, David Holmes, Keith Tenniswood, Anna Haigh, Terry Farley and more.
- Retrospective of Andrew Weatherall's club nights Sabresonic, Bloodsugar, Double Gone Chapel, Wrong Meeting, A Love From Outer Space by John Burgess.
All proceeds from the book will go to the charities that were important to Andrew Weatherall: Amnesty International, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Thrombosis UK, Crisis.

Entry Points Resonating Punk Performance & Art
Cat: 791301
 
book + CD
Notes: During the late 1960s and early 1970s, as members of the performance art group EXIT, Penny Rimbaud and Gee Vaucher turned to creating outside of the gallery system and artistic conventions. Taking inspiration from eastern philosophy, particularly Buddhism and Taoism, they searched for ways to push beyond the boundaries of Western art practices and rationalities. This resonates with Redza Piyadasa and Suleiman Esa's 1974 manifesto and exhibition Towards a Mystical Reality, which likewise sought to find a way out of the limitations of modernist art practices and rationalities. Entry Points takes up Piyadasa's statement that art does not exist in time but only has entry points. What entry points might we find in the resonances between different attempts to utilize conceptual and performative gestures as a way to escape from the constraints one is faced with, aesthetically and politically?

Contains an essay by Stevphen Shukaitis, a dialogue between Shukaitis and Penny Rimbaud, and a recording of an improvised performance by Dharma and Awk Wah, "There is no authority but yourself... and there is no self", responding to footage of the Stop the City Protests.
52pp risograph printed artist book with CD. Edition of 200.

Bios: Stevphen Shukaitis is a cultural theorist and Senior Lecturer at the University of Essex. Penny Rimbaud, is a writer, poet, philosopher, painter, musician and activist. He was a member of the performance art groups EXIT co-founded the seminal anarchist punk band Crass. Dharma was the guitarist of The Observatory for the first 7 albums. In 2013, he released his solo debut, Intergranular Space.Awk Wah is the solo project of Shark Fung, a prolific Mandopop songwriter in his youth who later spent time playing drums in band like Engineered Beautiful Blood, Amino Acid Orchestra and I\D.

I Don't Fit In: My Wild Ride Through The Punk & Power Pop Trenches With The Nerves & The Beat
Notes: After two long years of painstaking research and development, here is the first major memoir covering the birth of DIY Power Pop, from PAUL COLLINS. From it's initial conception as a film script to it's re-birth as a full-bore rock & roll revelation, this is one crazy story from beginning to end. Outlining the first National DIY cross-country tour by an unsigned band in 1977, and by default, creating the pathway for the true indie underground network of the '80s to take as a template. It wasn't even a second thought for Collins and bandmates PETER CASE and JACK LEE, but the underground rock & roll world is a better place for it. But until now, the real details of the origins of THE NERVES, BREAKAWAYS, and The BEAT have eluded most of us, so with this tome of incredible survival stories from the trenches, Paul Collins opens up and reveals all the drama, victories and defeats with such an impassioned voice, you won't be able to put it down. The coverage of the pre-Punk 1975 landscape of both LA and San Francisco is unmatched, and your mind will be BLOWN. Featuring TONS of previously unseen photos, flyers and ephemera from the earliest days of The Nerves lineup as a four piece to the legal documents challenging The Paul Collins BEAT vs The English Beat, to the ill-fated Nerves reunion, and so much in between.

272-page paperback.

Oli Freke: Synthesizer Evolution: From Analogue To Digital (& Back)
Cat: 797985 Rel: 08 Jan 21
 
Paperback book
Notes: From acid house to prog-rock, there is no form of modern popular music that hasn't been propelled forwards by the synthesizer. As a result, they have long been objects of fascination, desire and reverence for keyboard players, music producers and fans of electronic music alike. Whether looking at an imposing modular system or posing with a DX7 on Top of the Pops, the synth has also always had an undeniable physical presence.

This book celebrates their impact on music and culture by providing a comprehensive and meticulously researched directory of every major synthesizer, drum machine and sampler made between 1963 and 1995. Each featured instrument is illustrated by hand and shown alongside its vital statistics and some fascinatingly quirky facts.

In tracing the evolution of the analogue synthesizer from its invention in the early 1960s to the digital revolution of the 1980s right up until the point that analogue circuits could be modelled using software in the mid-1990s, the book tells the story of analogue to digital - and back again.

Over 500 hand-drawn illustrations of vintage synthesizers, drum-machines, samplers and pre-modern electric instruments. A reference book for every synthesizer, drum-machine and sampler manufactured between 1963 and 1995 with key stats, fascinatingly quirky facts and company profiles. Destined to be the new 'bible' of synthesizer information, following in the footsteps of the classic 'KeyFax' series by Julian Colbeck Tells the story and impact of the synthesizer on all forms of modern music and culture with geek appeal for the music fan and synth fan alike.

Notes: Further tales from the booth.

Through four decades at the pointy end of dance music and club culture, the Secret DJ has seen it all. In this hilarious, gripping, and at times extremely moving follow-up to the smash hit first book, the mysterious insider pulls no punches, wryly lifting the lid on misbehaving stars, what really goes on backstage, how to survive in the DJ game, and where the real power lies in rave.

Most of all, they chart how capitalism bought and sold the utopian dreams of the Acid House generation - and whether those dreams can still be saved. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the dancefloor; past, present and future.

Times & Sounds
Cat: 803505
 
Hardback book
Notes: 'GERMANY'S JOURNEY FROM JAZZ AND POP TO KRAUTROCK AND BEYOND' - This book is a journey - a ride through the depths of Germany's modern musical roots: at the beginning of the 1970s, experimental and progressive music in Germany developed far from the mainstream. Although few initially noticed it, it is now internationally celebrated as a cult phenomenon called "Krautrock". Today, bands like Kraftwerk, Can, Amon Düül II, NEU!, Cluster, and Tangerine Dream are considered pioneers of groundbreaking sound experiments. In order to understand the Krautrock era and its impact, it's worth delving deeper into the history of German rock music and taking a closer look at the overall picture. 'Times & Sounds' offers a comprehensive insight into the mechanisms of post-war Germany's music industry and sheds light upon its diverse musical styles, as well as their mutual influences and connections, which have received little attention until now: From the onset of German jazz and swing orchestras to the first rock'n'roll bands around Hamburg's Star Club and electronic synthesizer pioneers. From the intact world of schlager to agitprop and left-wing protest songs. From the avant-garde compositions of Stockhausen and his presumed disciples of Krautrock to the Neue Deutsche Welle. This book is a journalistic diary tracing Germany's dynamic culture from the late '40s to the early '90s. Those who take this journey experience the ups and downs of five decades, thus developing an understanding deeper than any other of the Krautrock phenomenon. Foreword by Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Kluster/Cluster/Harmonia).

Wall Calendar 2021: Dante Alighieri A Homage By Tangeine Dream & Bianca Froese-Acquaye
Notes: In 2021 the 700th Anniversary of Death of the unique Italian poet and philosopher DANTE ALIGHIERI is being marked. Tangerine Dream music lovers know that Dante's THE DIVINE COMEDY (Inferno/Purgatorio/Paradiso) was Edgar's most important compositional work. This electronic opera was performed several times in London and Germany in the years 2002-2006.

This calendar with its beautiful big-sized calendar sheets will accompany you through the Dante year. In future, March 25th will be declared 'Dante Day' in Italy in his honor. The calendar shows photos of TD's opera performance "Dante's Inferno" at Burg Nideggen in Germany, as well as wonderful painted artwork of Bianca Froese-Acquaye's Dante Series. Original quotes of Dante Alighieri himself complete the calendar perfectly.

In memory of Edgar Froese.
