Black Flag were the pioneers of American hardcore, and this is their blood-spattered story. Formed in Hermosa Beach, California in 1978, for eight brutal years they made and played brilliant, ugly, no-holds-barred music on a self-appointed touring circuit of America's clubs, squats and community halls. They fought with everybody - the police, the record industry and even their own fans. They toured overseas on pennies a day and did it in beat-up trucks and vans. This book tells Black Flag's story from the inside, drawing on exclusive interviews with the group's members, their contemporaries, and the bands they inspired. It's the story of Henry Rollins, and his journey from fan to iconic frontman. And it's the story of Greg Ginn, who turned his electronics company into one of the world's most influential independent record labels while leading Black Flag from punk's three-chord frenzy into heavy metal and free-jazz.

For three decades, James Brown dominated the changing face of post-war popular black music. Others were as inspirational in the short term, and several of his successors have been bigger pop stars, but none match Brown's independent authority, sustained influence, or commercial longevity. But while another generation danced to the pulse of James Brown, at the end of the eighties the man himself was back in a southern U.S. jail, a country mile or so from where he was first incarcerated in his teens. Between the two internments is the compelling story of a man who, by reading from his roots and striving determinedly for himself, came to represent in music and personal power the post-war emancipation of black America. This definitive biography is illustrated with many rare photographs and includes a comprehensive discography. SERIES: Omnibus Press. Media: Softcover. . Author: Geoff Brown.. by Geoff Brown.

The Real Story of ABBA Updated Edition. By the time ABBA split up, no one was in any doubt that behind the gliiter there was a dark side, and behind the smiling group were four troubled individuals. But even as a whole new generation of fans discover ABBA's great music, Anni-Frid, Agnetha, Benny, and Björn have continued to remain rather shadowy, secretive figures. Their marriages, personal break-ups, and superficial biographical details are well-known... but who exactly were ABBA? How did Norwegian Ann-Frid, the illegitimate daughter of a German soldier, become a real-life princess? How did folksy Benny and Björn reinvent themselves as an international pop force to rival Lennon & McCartney? And what actually happened to blonde Agnetha who smiled a lot but never really looked happy? The author answers these and many more questions about the hit group that no one took seriously... until everyone did.

A Very English Band. Marten and Hudson's biography explores the central paradox of The Kinks - a badly-behaved and permanently squabbling band that performed pop songs evoking a wistful and quirky view of English suburban life. From their '60s roots, when they hardly stood out from all the other Brit bands playing energetic electric versions of blues classics, The Kinks went on to create a distinctive string of atmospheric pop classics that could only have been English in provenance. The ups and downs of their tempestuous 20-year career are explored in detail and their influence upon everyone from Blur to Paul Weller is plausibly traced. As Ray Davies continues to re-interpret the band's classics alongside his solo songs, talk of a reunion continues. The Muswell Hillbillies may yet ride again, but whether they do or don't, their unique place in rock history is assured. Here is the definitive account of how The Kinks won it. SERIES: Omnibus Press.

No one has captured the romance and mystique of Led Zeppelin on film more successfully than American photographer Neal Preston. His stunning collection of photographs shows Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham in full flight, both on stage and off. Preston was very much a part of Led Zeppelin's inner circle. Camera at the ready, his unparalled access to Zeppelin allowed him to document everything: their majestic performances from the sides of stages, their travels on private jets, full band rehearsals, and private pre-show moments in cloistered dressing rooms. The result is this powerful collection of color and black-and-white images that stands as the ultimate visual record of the greatest rock 'n' roll band of the Seventies. SERIES: Omnibus Press.

Latin Music in New York. Shortly after Puerto Ricans were granted U.S. citizenship in 1917, they began moving into an uptown Manhattan neighborhood that would become known as Spanish Harlem. By 1930, Afro-Cuban music had gained a firm foothold in the city, setting the stage for the mambo, boogaloo, salsa and Latin-jazz scenes that followed. In this collection of profiles and essays, Max Salazar, perhaps the most eminent Latin-music historian in the United States, tells the story of the music and the musicians who made it happen, including Tito Puente, Machito, Tito Rodriguez, Charlie and Eddie Palmieri, Hector Lavoe and many others.

Most professions have their own jokes, but musicians seem to have more than their fair share. Perhaps it's the insane travel schedule, the bad lodgings, or just lack of sleep. But as Jim Green says in his introduction, It's not surprising we're a band apart (so to speak), outcasts who seek only our own company, rubbing two jokes together for warmth and trying to feel superior by sneering at one another's abilities and personalities. So maybe the reason musicians love poking fun at one another is nothing more than getting in first before everyone else does. Or perhaps choosing laughter is the only alternative to despair...

The Dolls, peddling trans-gender posturing and incendiary rock 'n' roll, were dumped by the record business after making just two albums. But their influence lived on when Malcolm McLaren injected the last of The Dolls' life blood into the Sex Pistols and changed pop forever. From punk to grunge, practically every new sensation in contemporary rock has been a delayed reaction to The New York Dolls. Too Much Too Soon celebrates all the glorious sleaze and excess of the Dolls' brief auto-destruct career through interviews with the survivors, including band members, managers, roadies, groupies, and hangers-on. The result is the ultimate saga of unrepentant rock 'n' roll and debauchery.

Secrets from the Studio. From the early days of music, record producers have served an important role in the studio, providing musical ideas, sonic beds and inspiration. Styles range from Svengali-like dictators to the nearly absent, yet producers are a constant in some of the best known recordings of the day. Producing Hit Records takes a behind the scenes look with today's top record producers at what it takes to sit in the big chair. Producers talk about how they got into the field, how they continue to get work, how they motivate artists to come up with that great take, and what it's like to work in an industry that's constantly changing.

Electric and Musical Industries Limied (EMI) first saw the light of day in the UK in 1931. In a visionary move for the gramophone age, it manufactured both hardware (recording and playback equipment) and software (the records and tapes its machines would play.) For over a half century EMI dominated both sectors, its music division eventually becoming one of the most successful in the world with a roster that at various times included The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Cliff Richard, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, Queen, The Spice Girls, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, and Coldplay. Then, in the 1990s, things started to go wrong. This new book explores and investigates EMI's extraordinary decline from greatness over two decades of rejected takeovers, unsuccessful mergers, executive changes, profit warnings, artist and staff cuts, press criticism, and never-ending speculation.

The gloriously chaotic career of Black Sabbath stands as testament to the indestructibility of British rock at its most extreme. In the world of heavy metal, no other band has lived life to the fullest, stared death in the face so many times, battled addiction, warred within themselves and still emerged, unbowed with as much bloody-minded persistence as Black Sabbath. Ozzy, Tony, Geezer, and Bill have survived against almost impossible odds, always making one more comeback than whatever the latest tally of disbandment's might be, and always celebrating it with yet another thunderous album. Joel McIver has conducted dozens of interviews with the musicians and those within the music industry who witnessed the roller-coaster rife of the band, as well as many other Sabbath musicians who have come and gone over the years.

Wild, defiant and startlingly inventive, The Slits were ahead of their time. Although they created some unique hybrids - dub reggae and pop-punk, African rhythms, funk and free jazz - they were dismissed as being unable to play. Their lyrics were witty and perceptive while their influential first album challenged perceptions of punk and of girl bands - but they were still misunderstood. And that infamous debut album cover, with the band appearing topless and mud-daubed, prompted further misreadings of the first ladies of punk. Author Zoe Street Howe speaks to The Slits themselves, to former manager Don Letts, mentor and PIL guitarist Keith Levene and many other friends and colleagues to discover exactly how The Slits phenomenon came about and to celebrate the legacy of a seminal band long overdue its rightful acclaim. Too long seen as a note in the margin of the history of rock, The Slits at last get a fair hearing in this revealing biography. SERIES: Omnibus Press. Media: Softcover. .

No image available.

One of the most influential, innovative, and inspiring composers of the 20th Century, Edgard Varése responded to advances in modern science in a climate of global conflict to create music that broke down the fragile remnants of diatonic tonality and embraced 'noise'. His intellectual shift from the dominance of melodic progression to a more textural approach to composition would see him revered by such cultural figureheads as Igor Stravinsky, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Frank Zappa, and others. His 'Poem Electronique' was one of the first examples of a purely artificial, studio-made composition, and would act as a blueprint for later electroacoustic explorations. The work Ionisation for percussion ensemble included air-raid sirens and was described by the New York Times as a 'terrible and marvelous work'. The 1954 premier of Deserts caused an uproar comparable to the infamous response to The Rite Of Spring some fifty years earlier. Edgard Varese analyses the life and work of this giant of the avant-garde, and delves deeply into his mysterious and eclectic world. SERIES: Omnibus Press. Media: Softcover. .

Without London band Wire, punk rock might never have developed beyond primitive three-chord thrash and cliched songs about tower blocks and dole queues. Arguably the first art-punks, the four musicians - Colin Newman on vocals and guitar, Graham Lewis on bass and vocals, Bruce Gilbert on guitar and Robert Gotobed (nee Grey) on drums - evolved fast from their groundbreaking 1977 debut album Pink Flag, with its 21 short, sharp, minimalist bursts of noise and melody. Paul Lester's book will tell the story of this crucial transitional band, from their early days dodging hostile crowds at punk venues like the Roxy, through their attempts to inject some arthouse experimentation and Situationist subversion into an increasingly conservative punk scene, up to their split in 1981 and beyond their mid-80s return and their various solo projects.
