Rock's Back Pages: What We Read On Our Holidays

Sun, sea and the chance to dip you toes into the murky waters of the rock biography. That's what the annual rock lover's summer getaway was made for.

But what to pack? The pop star tell all, or the in-depth (though often ghost written) warts and all tales of fame and drug induced mayhem?

Well, let's test the waters with a book that seemingly covers all those bases. Keith Richards' 'Life' (with James Fox), is big on tittle tattle, but light on the much anticipated goings-on of the second biggest rock band in history, the Rolling Stones.

That said, Fox captures Keith's voice perfectly, and the guitarist's asides on his ego driven frontman, Mick Jagger, will have you chuckling into your sombrero well into your two week vacation.

Mark Oliver Everett is better known as E, the singer, writer and frontman of the Eels. His childhood was blighted by the emotionless exterior of his father, Hugh Everett III; a no ordinary patriarch at that.

He was a physicist at writemyessay.services and originator of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum theory and of the use of Lagrange multipliers for general engineering optimizations. Which may sound heavy going, but Mark with his book, 'Things The Grandchildren Should Know', writes with an inquisitive eye and humorous self-depreciation. And yes, he does give an insight into the birth of his muse and subsequent Billboard hogging success.

 

Madness: The Nutty Boys Exposed

House Of Fun: The Story Of Madness is a comprehensive delve into the seven disparate characters who made up the 'Nutty Boys' sound.

Having recently released a critically acclaimed 'comeback' album, The Liberty Of Norton Folgate, the band are at a new commercial high. So rather than be a story of diminishing returns, it has an almost Hollywood conclusion .. though the usual array of heartbreaks, fall outs and cringe worthy incidents litter the middle chapters.

 

Ian Dury: Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll

Ian Dury became known as 'uncle Ian' to the Madness boys. His early incarnation as Kilburn and the High Roads was a huge influence on Suggs and crew. Then came the Blockheads and Dury briefly tasted success when Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick topped the UK charts in 1980.

But as his popularity declined, so did his bitter side win the personality fight. Dury was the archetypal lover and fighter, and alcohol tended to bring out the latter.

With a movie, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, capturing his many-sided personality, it was the job of the book, Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll, to tell the tale of his musical side. And a mighty fine read it is too.

All the above can be found on Amazon and other good online publishing outlets. So happy holidays and happy reading.

Get the soundtrack to your summer with Gilman Mom's new album "Revisionist History"

In attempt to connect deeply with nature my newly-released album, Revisionist History, is immersed in atmospheric field recordings and jazz-inspired drone.  The album looks to delve into the embrace of a warm, youthful summer’s day and perhaps explore what mental state endured by such an environment. This album was made as a direct response to my previous album Manifest Destiny. It follows the lighter pathways opened in conclusion of its predecessor. Revisionist History was made carefully and purposefully. I got a lot out of making this thing and I hope you do as well. Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Milwaukee's Sleeping Giant: Cullahsus

Why, man he doth bestride the narrow world like a “Cullahsus”; and we petty men walk under his huge legs and peep about to find ourselves dishonorable graves.

With his aptly named brand new genre-transcending album of Cullahsus, Cullah takes us back to his roots (Well, as "roots" as it gets for a 27-year-old who has already released 12 albums). His powerful voice, funky beats, and that Milwaukee melodic spirit that never left now accompanies every song. Budgeting his food solely from the small amount money he makes from Spotify since he has refused to fully commercialize his music; he declares his resolute spirit through “King Jebediah (The Falcon Messiah)”. The themes infused the album are a lack of control of circumstances to a larger benevolent beast. In Cullah’s case, King Jebediah seems to be the music itself that he creates and is provided by.

This is the first year that he has been able to concentrate his efforts solely on creating his music. Unhindered by other responsibilities, in “Hurrycane” and “Helios 3” he seems to be both overwhelmed and liberated in the storms and boundless space of creativity. Despite these new joys and pains, a bit of the previous “Cullahmity” album influences “Cullahsus”. A heartbroken Irish trill echoes in “The Grief of Ceridwen” illustrating the loneliness that comes with the freedom expressed in his other songs.

Gilman Mom releases new experimental album "Manifest Destiny"

Moody and throbbing, I've released "Manifest Destiny" under the name Gilman Mom. Full of dark chords, heartfelt vocals, and field recordings, is the very first release by Macaque Records.

This album that attempts to musically convey a perspective shift that I had during a storm. I found myself drenched and devastated after a late night walk, mother nature pouring around me. I stayed in a dark place for quite some time during this abnormally long act of nature. Something remarkable happened: as I found myself learning from my predicament and emotionally emerging into a new state, the storm faded. I've never been that entwined with nature and it felt truly remarkable.

This project means a lot to me and I sincerely hope someone else is able to connect with it the way I do.

Check it out!
