9780571311798: Original Rockers
Críticas:

Original Rockers is a remarkable memory fugue, a work of rapture and reverie, a bittersweet and often moving tribute to a hallowed place. (Suhkdev Sandhu The Observer)

Part time capsule, part history lesson, part musical treasure map, Original Rockers goes beyond recalling King's several years working at Bristol's Revolver Records during the 1990s. Offering insights into the idiosyncratic, often comically dysfunctional world behind the counter, King unashamedly romanticises those pre-internet days when musical knowledge was hard won rather than a mouse-click away. ( Mojo 4****)

There are a dozen different books packed into Original Rockers - a comic portrait of Revolver, a Bristol scene history and an analysis of British experimental music, for starters, but such abundance allows the book to imitate a flick through the record racks ( Q 4****)

A highly personal memoir that vividly articulates the sheer thrill of musical discovery , the new or previously unheard record that attaches itself to a moment in your life, from which it becomes inseparable ( Uncut 8/10)

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: Faber & Faber, London | A wonderful account that recalls the debauched glory days of the independent record shop. | 2015 BOOKS OF THE YEAR - THE TIMES, UNCUT, ROUGH TRADESHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 GORDON BURN PRIZETwenty years ago every town had one. From Bangor to Bradford, Bognor Regis to Bournemouth, independent record shops could be found on every High Street and many back streets, across the length and breadth of the land. But as the principal format for music switched from vinyl to CD, these places - synonymous with the thrill of discovery experienced by every serious fan and collector - started to disappear. Vinyl has recovered but its natural environment - the record store - is a rare and precious beast.Richard King's book about several years spent working in Bristol's Revolver, is a clear-eyed yet romantic account of life behind the counter in a business run from the heart not the head with a tendency towards dysfunction. In ten chapters of elegiac prose, King brings this lost environment back to life: the smells, the people, and of course the sounds. We see the landscape of a young person's taste come into view with magnificent passages on CAN, Captain Beefheart, Augustus Pablo, Rod Stewart, Sun Ra Arkestra and the free jazz of Cornelius Cardew. And we see the development of Bristol as one of the key musical cities, from its roots sound systems, through the parties run by the Wild Bunch collective, to the emergence of Massive Attack. Original Rockers evokes a golden moment about to turn to dust in the history of British record stores and celebrates the abandon with which we hear music, and it does so magically, without recourse to nostalgia. | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 412 gr | 212x160x25 mm | 256 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9780571311798
