When the World Stopped to Listen: Van Cliburn's Cold War Triumph, and Its Aftermath

Stuart Isacoff

When the World Stopped to Listen: Van Cliburn's Cold War Triumph, and Its Aftermath by Stuart IsacoffFrom the acclaimed author of A Natural History of the Piano, the captivating story of the 1958 international piano competition in Moscow, where, at the height of Cold War tensions, an American musician showed the potential of art to change the world.

April of 1958--the Iron Curtain was at its heaviest, and the outcome of the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition seemed preordained. Nonetheless, as star musicians from across the globe descended on Moscow, an unlikely favorite emerged: Van Cliburn, a polite, lanky Texan whose passionate virtuosity captured the Russian spirit.

This is the story...

The Clash Takes on the World: Transnational Perspectives on The Only Band that Matters

Samuel Cohen

The Clash Takes on the World: Transnational Perspectives on The Only Band that Matters by Samuel CohenOn their debut, The Clash famously claimed to be "bored with the USA,Â?? but The Clash wasn't a parochial record. Mick Jones' licks on songs such as "Hate and WarÂ?? were heavily influenced by classic American rock and roll, and the cover of Junior Murvin's reggae hit "Police and ThievesÂ?? showed that the band's musical influences were already wide-ranging. Later albums such as Sandinista! and Combat Rock saw them experimenting with a huge range of musical genres, lyrical themes and visual aesthetics. The Clash Takes on the World explores the transnational aspects of The Clash's music, lyrics...

The Pharcyde's Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde

Andrew Barker

The Pharcyde's Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde by Andrew BarkerAs immediately believable as they were cartoonish, as much an inner city cipher as a suburban boys gang, the foursome that made up the Pharcyde were the most relatable MCs to ever pass the mic. On their debut and magnum opus Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde, they created a record almost overstuffed with possibility, the sound of four restless man-children fresh out of their teens, finding a perfect outlet in a form of music that was just as young and fertile.

And like the product of any adolescent, Bizarre Ride wears its contrarianism and contradictions on its sleeve. It's a party album about shyness...

Young Marble Giants' Colossal Youth

Michael Blair & Joe Bucciero

Young Marble Giants' Colossal Youth by Michael Blair & Joe BuccieroWelsh post-punk band Young Marble Giants released one LP in 1980 and then, like their vanishing portraits on the album's cover, disappeared. Even though Colossal Youth received positive reviews and sold surprisingly well, Young Marble Giants quickly slid into the margins of rock 'n' roll history-relegated to cult status among post-punk and indie rock fans. Their lasting appeal owes itself to the band's singular approach and response to punk rock. Instead of employing overt political ideology and abrasive sounds to rebel against the status quo, Young Marble Giants filled their songs with restraint,...

Phil Marcade

Punk Avenue: Inside the New York City Underground, 1972-1982 by Phil MarcadeAn intimate account of Paris-born author Phil Marcade's first ten years in the United States, where-after drifting from Boston to the West Coast and back-he wound up in New York City and became deeply immersed in the fledgling punk rock scene.

Cowboy Song: The Authorized Biography of Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott

Graeme Thomson

Cowboy Song: The Authorized Biography of Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott by Graeme ThomsonPhilip Lynott packed a vast amount into his 36 years. An instantly identifiable singer, charismatic stage performer and supremely gifted songwriter, the guiding spirit of Thin Lizzy combined the instincts of a wild man with the soul of a poet.
The first biography written with the cooperation of the Lynott Estate, Cowboy Song explores the fascinating contradictions between Lynott's unbridled rock star excesses and the shy, sensitive "orphan" raised in working-class Dublin. The mixed-race child of a Catholic teenager and a Guyanese stowaway, Lynott rose above daunting obstacles and wounding abandonments....
