Jeff Tamarkin Got a Revolution!. The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane

The most successful and influential rock band to emerge from San Francisco during the 1960s, Jefferson Airplane created the sound of a generation. Their smash hits "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit" virtually invented the era's signature pulsating psychedelic music and, during one of the most tumultuous times in American history, came to personify the decade's radical counterculture. In this groundbreaking biography of the band, veteran music writer and historian Jeff Tamarkin produces a portrait of the band like none that has come before it. Having worked closely with Jefferson Airplane for more than a decade, Tamarkin had unprecedented access to the band members, their families, friends, lovers, crew members, fellow musicians, cultural luminaries, even the highest-ranking politicians of the time. More than just a definitive history, Got a Revolution! is a rock legend unto itself.Jann Wenner, editor-in-chief and publisher of Rolling Stone, wrote, "The classic [Jefferson] Airplane lineup were both architects and messengers of a psychedelic age, a liberation of mind and body that profoundly changed American art, politics, and spirituality. It was a renaissance that could only have been born in San Francisco, and the Airplane, more than any other band in town, spread the good news nationwide."

Gary Hartman The History of Texas Music

The richly diverse ethnic heritage of the Lone Star State has brought to the Southwest a remarkable array of rhythms, instruments, and musical styles that have blended here in unique ways and, in turn, have helped shape the music of the nation and the world. Historian Gary Hartman writes knowingly and lovingly of the Lone Star State’s musical traditions. In the first thorough survey of the vast and complex cultural mosaic that has produced what we know today as “Texas music,” he paints a broad, panoramic view, offers analysis of the origins of and influences on specific genres, profiles key musicians, and provides guidance to additional sources for further information. A musician himself, Hartman draws on both academic and non-academic sources to give a more complete understanding of the state’s remarkable musical history and ethnic community studies with his first-hand knowledge of how important music is as a cultural medium through which human beings communicate information, ideas, emotions, values, and beliefs, and bond together as friends, families, and communities. The History of Texas Music incorporates a selection of well-chosen photographs of both prominent and less-well-known artists and describes not only the ethnic origins of much of Texas music but also the cross-pollination among various genres. Today, the music of Texas—which includes Native American music, gospel, blues, ragtime, swing, jazz, rhythm and blues, conjunto, Tejano, Cajun, zydeco, western swing, hon...

Rebels Wit Attitude: Subversive Rock Humorists

In Rebels Wit Attitude, music writer and professor Iain Ellis throws a spotlight on the history of humor as a weapon of anti-establishment rebellion, paying tribute to the great rebel humorists in American rock history and investigating comedy and laughter as the catalyst and main expressive force in these artists' work. The performers who are the subject of Ellis's study are not merely funny people - they are those whose art exudes defiance and resistance, whether aimed at social structures and mores, political systems, aesthetic practices, or the music industry itself. Subversive rock humor has emerged as a formidable force of modern art, building a reputation for rock music as a rebellious - sometimes dangerous - form of expression that can dismay the adult mainstream as it empowers the youth culture. In this study of rock's impact on youth through the decades, Ellis proves that the most subversive rock humorists serve as the conscience of our culture. They chastise pretensions, satirize hypocrisy, and pour scorn on power, corruption, and lies. Discussing the work of iconic figures as diverse as Chuck Berry, Lou Reed, the Ramones, the Talking Heads, the Beastie Boys, Missy Elliott, Ellis examines the nature of the rock humorist, asking why and in what ways each performer uses humor as a weapon of resistance to various status quos. The commentary on these artists' work is the basis for a deeper discussion of the historical foundations and other socio-cultural contexts of hu...

Anna Szemere Up from the Underground. The Culture of Rock Music in Postsocialist Hungary

What happens to a community of oppositional artists when the purpose and meaning of their opposition are undermined by social transformation? Such was the dilemma facing many underground artists in Eastern Europe following the collapse of state socialism. In Up from the Underground, Anna Szemere looks at the rock-music-based underground in Hungary, showing how it anticipated, precipitated, and responded to a period of fundamental change. Szemere's work focuses on a community of rock musicians that became popular with Hungary's urban youth culture in the early 1980s--groups with names such as the Committee, Control Group, and the Galloping Coroners. Szemere reveals the activities, discourse, and group life of musicians against the background of shifting institutional contexts. By the mid-1990s the change of regime had altered the cultural dynamics of Hungarian society, leading to a complete realignment of the underground music world. Szemere uses the opportunity presented by these developments to challenge one-dimensional representations of popular culture and transition in the region. She also addresses more general questions about the nature and uses of expressive culture, autonomy, social change, and social reproduction.Up from the Underground is an important addition to the scholarship on the cultural dimension of the most profound societal change in Europe since World War II. It also enriches the increasingly global field of cultural sociology and cultural studies...

Ronnie Schneider Out of Our Heads. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Me

Ron Schneider is among a select handful of individuals who can honestly claim to have taken an active part in the explosive beginnings of 1960's rock'n'roll.After leaving ABKCO and working with the Beatles, he did the Rolling Stones 1969 and 1970 tours and produced the Maysles Bros film, Gimme Shelter, sometimes called "the greatest rock film of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band". Rock critic Robert Christgau described the Rolling Stones’ 1969 US tour as "history's first mythic rock and roll tour," while another rock writer, Dave Marsh, called it one of the "benchmarks of an era.” It was launched on almost no money, rolled across America hand to mouth, and concluded with calamity and death at the Altamont Speedway in Northern California on December 6, 1969. For historians, Altamont came to symbolize the death of hippie idealism; the day American youth culture was changed forever, ushering in a new era of fear and cynicism.For Ron, in a way, it was just another day at the office.He is now shares the stories and documents that provide the background to these historic events.

A Culture of Stone: Inka Perspectives on Rock

A major contribution to both art history and Latin American studies, "A Culture of Stone: Inka Perspectives on Rock" offers sophisticated new insights into Inka culture and the interpretation of non-Western art. Carolyn Dean focuses on rock outcrops masterfully integrated into Inka architecture, exquisitely worked masonry, and freestanding sacred rocks, explaining how certain stones took on lives of their own and played a vital role in the unfolding of Inka history. Examining the multiple uses of stone, she argues that the Inka understood building in stone as a way of ordering the chaos of unordered nature, converting untamed spaces into domesticated places, and laying claim to new territories. Dean contends that understanding what the rocks signified requires seeing them as the Inka saw them: as potentially animate, sentient, and sacred. Through careful analysis of Inka stonework, colonial-period accounts of the Inka, and contemporary ethnographic and folkloric studies of indigenous Andean culture, Dean reconstructs the relationships between stonework and other aspects of Inka life, including imperial expansion, worship, and agriculture. She also scrutinizes meanings imposed on Inka stone by the colonial Spanish and, later, by tourism and the tourist industry. A Culture of Stone is a compelling multidisciplinary argument for rethinking how we see and comprehend the Inka past.

Daniel Hardie Jazz Historiography. The Story of Jazz History Writing

Jazz has been around for over a hundred years but how much do we know about its history, and how much of what think we know is true? Beginning in the so called Jazz Age of the 1920's jazz history was recounted and interpreted by admiring authors and record collectors both in the United States and elsewhere. However, since the early 1990's some historians have come to doubt the validity of the conventional narrative of the story of jazz and some of its most hallowed traditions. In Jazz Historiography: The Story of Jazz History Writing Daniel Hardie uncovers the course of jazz history writing from early Jazz Age American and French publications to Academic texts in the 2000's, and seeks answers to questions about the accuracy of those accounts and the influence they have had on our understanding of jazz history - even the impact they might have had on the course of jazz history itself. How much for example did the work of jazz historians influence the course of the New Orleans Revival? Was the appearance of bebop in the 1940's a revolutionary response to oppression experienced by Afro American musicians in a commercialized popular music industry, or was it an attempt to mirror the development of classical music of the time? How has the development of University jazz studies influenced the writing of jazz history?

Paul Sutton Understanding Gary Numan. The Machine Quartet (1978-1981)

The first analytical study of the pioneering English musician. The historian, Paul Sutton begins by taking the reader through a vastly entertaining potted history of rock music pioneers, tracing them all back to “a delta of Mississippi mud from where howled the first harmonica, and from where was heard the first blue plucking finger on string”, to show that popular music was strictly The Imitation Game until Gary Numan came along with his Machine Quartet, four albums that completely re-invigorated rock and roll. “Numan’s music added so many new strands of DNA to the gene pool of what hitherto had been dead Mississippi mud that the transformative effect was immediate and everlasting.” Artists major, from Frank Zappa, Neil Young and Alice Cooper, and bands then minor, including Tears for Fears and Depeche Mode, all stopped what they were doing and added lessons learned from Numan to their art.Sutton looks at the influence on Numan of David Bowie, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk and John Foxx, and deconstructs Numan’s cryptic lyrics from the first single to the fourth album in order to unlock the art and mind of the world’s first Asperger’s pop star.

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti - A Classic Album Under Review

By 1973, Led Zeppelin was the most popular rock band on the planet. Having already played to the largest audiences ever to attend a music event and achieved sales across their first five albums in figures previously unheard of in the music industry, the band were still thinking big. So, when Physical Graffiti hit the stores two years later, it was greeted with a sense of awe and astonishment - Zeppelin had gone one better than anyone thought possible by making what Rolling Stone magazine called 'their Tommy, Beggar's Banquet and Sgt. Pepper rolled into one'. This DVD is a documentary film about the build up to, the making and release of and - crucially - the music contained on this most revered of albums. With the aid of rare and classic performances, scarce interviews, seldom seen photographs and contributions from those involved in the making of the record - plus the review and critique from a panel of Zeppelin experts - this programme finally lifts the lid on what many believe to be Led Zeppelin's very finest offering. With contributions from; the album's engineer, Ron Nevison; former Yardbird, Chris Dreja; Swan Song recording artist, Maggie Bell; author of The Rough Guide To Led Zeppelin, Nigel Williamson; Tight But Loose editor, Dave Lewis; Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome; renowned guitar tutor and author, Rikky Rooksby and Robert Plant biographer, Neil Daniels.

Impressionism

A celebration of the Impressionists artists, including Monet, Renoir and Pissarro, whose paintings are inextricably linked to the birth of modern art. Today, our passion for these artists remains, and their paintings are amongst the best-loved works in the history of art. By choosing to paint extraordinary pictures of modernity that shocked the bourgeois elite, the Impressionists challenged the academic ideals of the French Salons, rejected the past and embracing colour to portray a sense of joie de vivre. Their revolutionary use of colour, free brushstrokes and modern subject matter, painted en plain air gave rise to one of the most important and influential art movements of the nineteenth century. Featuring many of the most famous and important pieces by the groups' key figures, this beautifully illustrated reference book also includes a collection of less well-known but equally important works to show the diversity of this exceptional movement.

Pop music and rock music are often treated as separate genres but the distinction has always been blurred. Motti Regev argues that pop-rock is best understood as a single musical form defined by the use of electric and electronic instruments, amplification and related techniques. The history of pop-rock extends from the emergence of rock'n'roll in the 1950s to a variety of contemporary fashions and trends – rock, punk, soul, funk, techno, hip hop, indie, metal, pop and many more. This book offers a highly original account of the emergence of pop-rock music as a global phenomenon in which Anglo-American and many other national and ethnic variants interact in complex ways. Pop-rock is analysed as a prime instance of 'aesthetic cosmopolitanism' – that is, the gradual formation, in late modernity, of world culture as a single interconnected entity in which different social groupings around the world increasingly share common ground in their aesthetic perceptions, expressive forms and cultural practices. Drawing on a wide array of examples, this path-breaking book will be of great interest to students and scholars in cultural sociology, media and cultural studies as well as the study of popular music.

Jeffrey Aaron Snyder Making Black History. The Color Line, Culture, and Race in the Age of Jim Crow

In the Jim Crow era, along with black churches, schools, and newspapers, African Americans also had their own history. Making Black History focuses on the engine behind the early black history movement, Carter G. Woodson and his Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH). Author Jeffrey Aaron Snyder shows how the study and celebration of black history became an increasingly important part of African American life over the course of the early to mid-twentieth century. It was the glue that held African Americans together as "a people," a weapon to fight racism, and a roadmap to a brighter future.Making Black History takes an expansive view of the historical enterprise, covering not just the production of black history but also its circulation, reception, and performance. Woodson, the only professional historian whose parents had been born into slavery, attracted a strong network of devoted members to the ASNLH, including professional and lay historians, teachers, students, "race" leaders, journalists, and artists. They all grappled with a set of interrelated questions: Who and what is "Negro"? What is the relationship of black history to American history? And what are the purposes of history? Tracking the different answers to these questions, Snyder recovers a rich public discourse about black history that took shape in journals, monographs, and textbooks and sprang to life in the pages of the black press, the classrooms of black schools...

Robert Forster The 10 Rules of Rock and Roll. Collected Music Writings / 2005-09

“Sometimes I play a game in my head: name the five best American rock bands of the ’60s. My list goes: The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, The Beach Boys, The Doors, and then I stall on the fifth. Creedence? The Band – although they’re mostly Canadian. Simon and Garfunkel? Jefferson Airplane? The Lovin’ Spoonful? But I plump for The Monkees.”—Robert ForsterRobert Forster was a Go-Between, and now has an acclaimed solo career, but in recent times he has also established himself as one of the finest music critics in the business. In The 10 Rules of Rock and Roll, Robert Forster takes readers on a roller-coaster ride through popular music – from Bob Dylan, AC/DC and Nana Mouskouri through to Cat Power, Franz Ferdinand, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and … Delta Goodrem. Accompanying Forster’s acclaimed writing for The Monthly are a short story about Normie Rowe and stunning new pieces in which he sets out the 10 Rules of Rock and Roll, ponders on ‘The 10 Bands I Wish I’d Been In’, reflects on the influence of The Velvet Underground, and gives a moving tribute his partner in The Go-Betweens, Grant McLennan.Funny and illuminating, The 10 Rules of Rock and Roll shows a great critic at work.

Via texts and images, this concise overview covers the entire career of the most influential singer-songwriter in the history of popular music. In 2008, Bob Dylan became the first rock artist to win a Pulitzer Prize, for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." A musician, poet, and celebrated nonconformist of unparallelled stature, Dylan is revered by critics and fans alike as the most influential singer-songwriter in the history of popular music. For over four decades he has inspired folk and rock lovers around the world. His distinct brand of personal philosophy and socio-political comment has metamorphosed through a variety of musical forms, from traditional folk, blues, and country, to gospel and rock and roll, all the while establishing a unique soundtrack to our lives. Setting out in 1961 as a young man with a guitar and a harmonica, this enigmatic artist has grown into an international cultural icon, the tireless author of over 30 albums and a relentless live performer. This concise overview covers Dylan's entire career via texts and images. About the editor and author: Luke Crampton and Dafydd Rees both work in London's music business before co-founding the Media Research & Information Bureau (MRIB) in 1981. In addition to writing over 20 music and media-related books, they are voting members for the Grammy Awards, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The duo has also created and produced numerous successful UK and US radio and television series, including the "Network Chart" show and CNN International's "World Beat" and "The Music Room."
