A fascinating glimpse behind the big suits and deadpan looks to the heart and soul of a band that made it big by playing it cool With their minimalist beats, sophisticated lyrics, and stoic mien, the Talking Heads were indisputably one of the most influential and intriguing bands of their time. Rising from the ashes of punk and the smoldering embers of the disco inferno, they effectively straddled the boundaries between critical and commercial success as few other groups did, with music you could deconstruct and dance to at the same time. Culture critic David Bowman tells the fascinating story of how this brain trust of talented musicians turned pop music on its head. From the band’s inception at the Rhode Island School of Design to their first big gig opening for the Ramones at CBGB, from their prominence in the worlds of art and fashion to the clash of egos and ideals that left them angry, jealous, and ready to call it quits, Bowman closely chronicles the rise and fall of a stunningly original and gloriously dysfunctional rock 'n' roll band that stayed together longer than anyone thought possible, and left a legacy that influences artists to this day.

Von Anfang an bestimmt der Tod ihr Leben: als Maggie O'Farrell im Alter von 8 Jahren beinah an einer unbekannten Virusinfektion starb. Als sie mit 15 aus Übermut und Freiheitsdrang einen törichten Fehler beging. Als sie in der Idylle des Lake District eine zutiefst verstörende Begegnung hatte. Oder als sie in einer unterbesetzten Klinik mit inkompetentem Personal bei der Geburt ihrer ersten Tochter fast gestorben wäre. An den unterschiedlichsten Orten, zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten lenkte der Tod Maggie O'Farrells Leben. Ihre tiefgründige, außergewöhnliche Geschichte stellt existenzielle Fragen: Wie würde ich handeln, wenn ich in tödliche Gefahr geriete? Was stünde für mich auf dem Spiel? Und, nicht zuletzt, wer würde ich danach sein? »Ich bin, ich bin, ich bin« ist ein Buch, das man mit einem neuen Gefühl der Verletzlichkeit aus der Hand legt, mit dem Gefühl, dass jeder neue Herzschlag zählt.

Es ist der heißeste Sommer, den die Menschen in England je erlebt haben. Seit Monaten hat es nicht mehr geregnet, in den Gärten verdorrt das Gras, und schon morgens liegt die Julihitze bleiern über London, als Robert Riordan wie jeden Tag das Haus verlässt, um die Zeitung zu holen. Doch er kehrt nicht zurück. Die Suche nach ihm zwingt die drei Kinder von Robert und Gretta zur Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus: die seit Jahren zerstrittenen Schwestern Monica und Aoife sowie ihren Bruder Michael Francis. Alle drei haben mit privaten Krisen zu kämpfen, und die Sorge um den Vater sowie das plötzliche Aufeinandertreffen spitzen die Probleme und ihre Konflikte untereinander zu. Sie ahnen nicht, dass Gretta eine Erklärung für Roberts Verschwinden haben könnte, aber ihr Geheimnis nicht einmal jetzt preisgeben kann.

A sudden death, a never-mailed postcard, and a longburied secret set the stage for a luminous and heartbreakingly real novel about lost souls finding one another The Darby-Jones boardinghouse in Ruby Falls, New York, is home to Mona Jones and her daughter, Oneida, two loners and self-declared outcasts who have formed a perfectly insular family unit: the two of them and the three eclectic boarders living in their house. But their small, quiet life is upended when Arthur Rook shows up in the middle of a nervous breakdown, devastated by the death of his wife, carrying a pink shoe box containing all his wife's mementos and keepsakes, and holding a postcard from sixteen years ago, addressed to Mona but never sent. Slowly the contents of the box begin to fit together to tell a story—one of a powerful friendship, a lost love, and a secret that, if revealed, could change everything that Mona, Oneida, and Arthur know to be true. Or maybe the stories the box tells and the truths it brings to life will teach everyone about love—how deeply it runs, how strong it makes us, and how even when all seems lost, how tightly it brings us together. With emotional accuracy and great energy, This Must Be the Place introduces memorable, charming characters that refuse to be forgotten.

An Architectural History of Popular Music Performance Venues

Author: Robert Kronenburg

Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic

ISBN: 1501319272

Category: Music

Page: 304

View: 402

This Must Be The Place is the first architectural history of popular music performance space, describing its beginnings, its different typologies, and its development into a distinctive genre of building design. It examines the design and form of popular music architecture and charts how it has been developed in ad-hoc ways by non-professionals such as building owners, promoters, and the musicians themselves as well as professionally by architects, designers, and construction specialists. With a primary focus on Europe and North America (and excursions to Australia, the Far East and South America), it explores audience experience and how venues have influenced the development of different musical scenes. From music halls and Vaudeville in the 1800s, via the seminal clubs and theatres of the 20th century, to the large-scale multi-million-dollar arena concerts of today, this book explores the impact that the use of private and public space for performance has on our cities' urban identity, and, to a lesser extent, how rural space is perceived and used. Like architecture, popular music is neither static nor standardized; it continuously develops and has multiple strands. This Must Be The Place describes the factors that have determined the development of music venue architecture, focusing on both famous and less well-known examples from the smallest bar room music space to the largest stadium-filling rock set.

It's the summer of 1983. Ronald Reagan is in the White House, Princess Leia is on magazine covers, and Thea Knox is on the road. Fresh out of college, Thea is driving solo from California to New York. Her plan is to house-sit for her parents for the summer, but they sell her childhood home on a whim, leaving Thea (once again) to her own devices. She takes a detour to visit her Aunt Wendy in Merdale, a college town nestled in the Kansas prairie. Unlike Dorothy, Thea's adventure begins when she arrives in Kansas. Thea is immediately surrounded by her aunt's group of friends, including Julie, a bookstore owner; Nick, Julie's carpenter boyfriend; Bob, a stoner wildlife rehabilitat∨ and Amira, a lawyer who works with runaway girls. When she finds herself in love at first sight with Jimmy Ward, a local with a hazy past, Thea decides to extend her stay. Not everyone welcomes her into the fold, however, and Thea's own past--including her distant best friend and erstwhile boyfriends on either coast--is nipping at her heels. When she discovers a terrible secret that could upend Jimmy's world, the spell of happiness she has woven in this unlikely place threatens to break. This compelling coming-of-age novel explores the search for identity, love, friendship, and home, and celebrates the magic and mystery that exist in even the most ordinary places.

• Connects the metaphor of home that runs through the stories of our faith – the Prodigal Son, the Son of Man has nowhere to call home, heaven as home – with the deep desire to belong and to feel wanted • Author of Keeping the Feast turns discussions about food and faith into what it means to live in community, to create home, and to feel at home The author writes, “One of the characters in Robert Frost’s ‘Death of a Hired Man’ says, ‘Home is that place where, when you go there, they have to let you in.’ I have found that place in my marriage, around our dining room table for Thursday Night Dinners, with friends who have helped me make a mosaic out of the shards of my fractured past. Home, for me, means to belong, to feel wanted.”
