9781522774020: Journey Into Beatledom: The Beatles as Prophets, Peaceniks & Holy Writ

As featured in the TOP 5 Beatles books on Amazon & TOP 2 Music books, this updated edition includes lots of brand new information on The Fab Four's musical, cultural, spiritual & political influence including surprising but relevant references to how their messages of peace and love are playing out in the 21st Century and how the mega-profits from their song/album sales financed major developments in cutting edge CT/nano-technologies with profound effects. When Turner prize winner Jeremy Deller recently said ‘Brian Epstein died for you’, he simply was reaffirming The Beatle manager’s worshipful devotion to Liverpool’s most famous sons; a guarantee that the world would somehow come to see the Fab Four as the zero and the one. A place where something from nothing was possible and where in Beatledom, (that sacred realm), the quantum quartet & their super-positional Fabulosity made the 1960’s fizzle in a way the humdrum 1950’s never could. The Beatles surely came from that quantum ‘void’, a place we all occasionally intuit, a place we can all revisit whenever we get the chance. – Leo Copstereles. Mid-Summers Day 2017. Reader review: (brand new, updated edition): 'The author's admiration for the Fab Four is clear from the outset, although that does not deter him from putting the Beatles under a forensic microscope. The birth of the group is rightly set against the changing social & political landscape of post-war & 1960's Britain, helping to give an understanding of just how ground-breaking the Beatles were. The book is extremely well-researched & the language used - rich and image-laden throughout - is sumptuous, capturing something of how the Beatles took popular music beyond the cliched & comfortably familiar.' Quote: 'With Paul suggesting they spice things up a little with their Pepper alter egos & John's humour prone to the literary grotesque bordering on the bizarre, (he lived directly opposite - 100 yards away from a druid burial site); The Beatles were always apt to behave strangely when the mood took them.' Read first hand witness accounts from John's school chums who spoke about his weird word games with local shopkeepers & one even spoke of his penchant for sado-masochism!! It's all here. Lennon 's youthful humour was, as he admitted, rather cruel & obtuse. It was only after one experienced Beatleologist described Journey Into Beatledom as 'like no other [Beatles] book' that fans began to sit up & take notice.' The new Beatles cult classic with answers to the following new questions & many more. Even if you're an avid Beatles fan - this book is full of surprises. 1. Which esoteric/scientific subject matter is discussed regarding various Beatles songs? 2. Which two people can be referred to as ‘The Fool on the Hill?’ 3. How are the close coterie of their Liverpudlian friends described? 4. Which Liverpudlian ‘meme’ informed their song writing? 5. Which scientist is paraphrased in the song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’? 6. Who is Maxwell in Maxwell’s Silver Hammer? Beatle author Review: - 'In Journey into Beatledom: Joe Robinson offers new readings of the Beatles’ words & music through a richly textured sociocultural context. Drawing upon historical, materialist, & political insights, Robinson’s study reframes the Four Lads from Liverpool for new generations of readers. It is a wonderful book based on a remarkable set of ideas.' - Prof. Kenneth A. Womack. Author of the award-winning novel John Doe No. 2 & the Dreamland Motel (2010), & Reading the Beatles: Cultural Studies, Literary Criticism, & the Fab Four (2006; with Todd F. Davis), Long & Winding Roads: The Evolving Artistry of the Beatles (2007), & The Cambridge Companion to the Beatles (2009), which was named by The Independent (UK) as the 2009 Music Book of the Year.
