Kim Gordon, Indie-Ikone, Bassistin und Sängerin der legendären Sonic Youth, über ein Leben für die Kunst Sonic Youth war eine der einflussreichsten Alternative-Bands der 1980er- und 1990er-Jahre und Kim Gordon ihr heimlicher Star. Als Bassistin, Sängerin und Songwriterin der Band war sie Vorbild für eine ganze Generation von Frauen. Jetzt erzählt sie ihre Geschichte.Ihre Musik, die sich im Grenzland von Punk, No Wave und Noise-Rock austobte, war nicht zu überhören. Als Kim Gordon und Thurston Moore 1981 in New York die Band Sonic Youth gründeten, lag die Stadt finanziell am Boden, die Kunstszene in den Clubs aber blühte. Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins – für diese und viele andere Bands waren Sonic Youth wichtige Wegbereiter, ihr Einfluss auf die Independent-Szene ist kaum zu überschätzen. Fans und Kritiker lieben die Band für ihren unverwechselbaren Sound und ihre absolute künstlerische Integrität. Kim Gordon und Thurston Moore galten lange Zeit als das Traumpaar des Rock’n’Roll, sie haben eine gemeinsame Tochter. 2011 trennten sich die beiden nach 27-jähriger Ehe und Sonic Youth löste sich auf. Kim Gordon erzählt in ihrem Buch von den Anfängen im New York der frühen Achtzigerjahre, von ihrem Leben als Musikerin, bildende Künstlerin, Modedesignerin und wie das zusammenging mit ihrer Rolle als Ehefrau und Mutter – und vom Schmerz einer Trennung nach fast 30 Jahren Ehe und künstlerischer Zusammenarbeit.

For Vol. 2 of the series CMS Sourcebooks in American Music, Neil Minturn acknowledges the phenomenon of rock and roll with a serious examination of Martin Scorsese's film, THE LAST WALTZ (1978), the celebrated "rockumentary" that so artfully captured for posterity the final performance of The Band. From 1861 to 1976, this partnership of one American and four Canadians produced an impressive body of popular song in the rock idiom between 1961 and 1976. Joining its members for their farewell performance are a variety of guests, who, like The Band itself, reflected the rich array of traditions that have nourished rock and roll since its emergence. Minturn approaches the substance of the performances and the film itself in terms of intimacy and tradition. He presents the San Francisco concert as a summation of an extraordinary musical journey and prefaces his "scene-by-scene" analysis with a cogent introduction to documentary filmmaking. Selected performances are discussed in detail.

“They kept it up to the very end. Only the engulfing ocean had power to drown them into silence. The band was playing ‘Nearer, My God, to Thee.’ I could hear it distinctly. The end was very close.” —CHARLOTTE COLLYER, TITANIC SURVIVOR The movies, the documentaries, the museum exhibits. They often tell the same story about the “unsinkable” Titanic, her wealthy passengers, the families torn apart, and the unthinkable end. But never before has “that glorious band”—the group of eight musicians who played on as the Titanic slipped deeper and deeper into the Atlantic Ocean—been explored in such depth. Steve Turner’s extensive research reveals a fascinating story including dishonest agents, a clairvoyant, social climbers, and a fraudulent violin maker. Read what brought the band members together and how their music served as the haunting soundtrack for one of modern history’s most tragic maritime disasters. BOOK REVIEWS The Band that Played On by Steve Turner is, surprisingly, the first book since the great ship went down to examine the lives of the eight musicians who were employed by the Titanic. What these men did?standing calmly on deck playing throughout the disaster?achieved global recognition. But their individual stories, until now, have been largely unknown. What Turner has uncovered is a narrow but unique slice of history?one more chapter of compelling Titanic lore. Turner, a music journalist, pursued living relatives of the band members and squeezed all that he could out of “inherited photographs, documents, and anecdotes” enabling him to sketch brief but poignant portraits of eight young (or at least youngish) men, all born in an optimistic era and all members of the rising middle class. To their parents, their girlfriends, and surely to themselves as well, the future must have seemed bright right up until the early morning hours of April 15, 1912… There is much that we do not know about the final hours of these men. Why did they make the decision to play on the deck that night? What was in their hearts and minds? … Even the Titanic survivors who witnessed their final performance quibbled over some details. Did the band march or did they kneel? Was their last number “Autumn” or was it “Nearer, My God, to Thee”? Did they stop playing during the final moments and pack their instruments away or were they still playing as the ship went down? All agreed, however, that all eight band members behaved with remarkable calm and courage. Within hours of the ship’s sinking, their story was circulating and they had already become heroes… For Turner, however, the undisputed hero of the book is Wallace Hartley, a fine musician with religious conviction and a powerful sense of duty who seems most likely to have been the force behind those final hours of heroism. In the last pages of the book, Turner reveals a surprising Hartley discovery?a turn of events which makes a fine ending for his worthy book, even as it leaves us hopeful that the Titanic may yet have a few mysteries she is willing to give up. —Marjorie Kehe, Book Editor, Christian Science Monitor

The incredible story of GEORGE HAGGIS the "gatecrasher", whose determination and persistence enabled him to witness some of the world's greatest sporting events. The gate crasher always attempted to go to all the major events in Chicago, the US and throughout the world. He wanted to be there in person as it was taking place. In his mind he felt this might never happen again. Once he got into the event he always wanted to be on the 50 yard line, behind home plate, or as close to the action as possible. It was always a championship or title game, always sold out, always big bucks for tickets, the gate crasher was an average wage earner but once in he was rubbing elbows with all the big boys, the well connected, the heavy hitters. He grew up with a deep love for the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and Chicago Blackhawks as well as Professional Wrestling. He passed his love of Chicago and its hometown teams on to his two sons. Accompanied by a supporting cast (his family, friends, etc.). The experiences and unpredictable series of events are unforgettable covering a span of 40 years with over 50 events.
