Inhaltsangabe: Take a trip to a lost world. A world permeated by the odour of stale tobacco and overflowing toilets; a world where your feet stick to the carpet and the walls are covered in peeling flock wallpaper. The beer is warm, but the band on stage is hot. Welcome to the world of 1970s pub rock.

Author John Blaney traces the history of pub rock from its Mod roots through to its reinvention as new wave. He covers all the essential bands such as the American Eggs Over Easy (who started it all), Brinsley Schwarz, Kilburn &The High Roads, Dr Feelgood, Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello and more, in a fascinating study that has been painstakingly researched and is well argued.

Crucial to the movement were Dave Robinson and Jake Riviera, both of whom managed Pub Rock bands before setting up Stiff Records. With little money, or inclination, to sign big acts they turned to the Pub Rock caterpillars they knew and turned them in new wave butterflies. Ian Dury, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Elvis Costello were all on roads to nowhere, but made it big as a result of Stiff's involvement.

The book ends with the Be Stiff tour of 1979, when a 'new' new wave was breaking with Wreckless Eric, Lene Lovich and Rachel Sweet.

With eye-witness accounts from those involved, including a lengthy interview with Dave Robinson, John Blaney explains perfectly how pub rock started, flourished and reinvented itself as the new wave: 'A Howlin' Wind' that blew away the cobwebs from a moribund music scene.

Of particular interest to US audiences will be the attempts to conquer American by some of the acts. Elvis Costello, Graham Parker and Ian Dury succeeded (as did Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds to a lesser extent), but Dr Feelgood failed due to an unwillingness to play the corporate game.

This book is different from Will Birch's excellent No Sleep Till Canvey Island, and is complementary to it as Will looks at the When and Where, whereas John covers the Why and How. Will has been very supportive of our book.

In addition to an 8 page plates section there are black and white images of people and memorabilia scattered throughout the book, making this a lovely memento of an era when the music mattered.

Über den Autor: Born in Devon, England, John Blaney trained as a graphic designer before starting a career in music retail before taking up his present post as curator of a museum of technology. A massive Beatles fan he has written Paul McCartney: The Seventies vol. 1: The Songs He Was Singing (Paper Jukebox 2010); Paul McCartney: The Eighties vol. 2: The Songs He Was Singing.Never frightened of a challenge, John has just launched a record label called Mega Dodo. The first single is 'Georgina Jones' by Mordecai Smyth and available on vinyl and downloads. An album has just been released too.

Buchbeschreibung Soundcheck Books. Paperback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, A Howlin' Wind: Pub Rock and the Birth of New Wave, John Blaney, Take a trip to a lost world. A world permeated by the odour of stale tobacco and overflowing toilets; a world where your feet stick to the carpet and the walls are covered in peeling flock wallpaper. The Watneys Red Barrel is warm, but the band on stage is hot. Welcome to the world of 1970s pub rock. Groups disillusioned with mainstream music - such as Eggs Over Easy, Brinsley Schwarz, Kilburn and the High Roads, Joe Strummers' 101ers, Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers, Ducks Deluxe and Ace - sought refuge from a musical landscape ruled by stodgy prog rock heavyweights and fluffy glam lightweights. The pubs provided the venues they, and a thirsty public, needed. Jake Riviera and Dave Robinson (the latter has given a lengthy exclusive interview for this book) managed some of these bands before starting Stiff Records, where they turned pub rock caterpillars into new wave butterflies. Elvis Costello, Ian Dury, Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe and Graham Parker were at the vanguard of Stiff's revolution. Meanwhile, Dr Feelgood and Eddie and the Hot Rods were placing Southend-on-Sea at the centre of Britain's musical map. Here are all their stories. With eye-witness accounts from those involved, John Blaney explains perfectly how pub rock started, flourished and reinvented itself as the new wave: 'A Howlin' Wind' that blew away the cobwebs from a moribund music scene. If you were there, you'll love this book. If you weren't, read it and marvel at an era where the music still mattered. Buchnummer des Verkäufers B9780956642042
