Children Of The Revolution : The Glam Rock Story 1970-75 - Dave Thompson

Children Of The Revolution : The Glam Rock Story 1970-75
Despite its disposable appearance, Glam Rock has survived and thrived for four decades, and is now viewed as one the best loved and most product ive periods for pop music in the UK. A period of pomp, glitz, glamour and parent worrying fashion unlike any other, the movement dominated the charts and ruled the country’s newsstands in the early and mid 1970s. Its influence also spread and fused with ideas blossoming in Europe and the United States and helped spawn artists such as Alice Cooper and Kiss who, in return, refocus international attention on the period to this day. Children of The Revolution - The Glam Rock Encyclopedia is the definitive A to Z guide to the period, and chronicles every band and art ist who made a significant impression on the art form, both in its heyday and during its concept ion and later years. Detailing their output and recording significant events and contributions, the book provides a wealth of informat ion on numerous much loved acts, such as T Rex, Wizzard, Slade, Bay City Rollers, Mud, Sweet, David Essex, Suzy Quatro, Mott The Hoople, Sparks, Kenny, Spiders from Mars, Alvin Stardust and hundreds more, ranging from household names to lesser known acts.

The glam scene still thrives today, both through heritage acts and filtered through glam metal and suchlike. Our own 7Ts record label has seen impressive sales of reissued albums by dozens of the acts featured in this book, and we export high volumes to the US, Japan, Germany, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and even Russia, who are current ly enjoying a huge Glam revival. Having been ridiculed throughout much of the 80s and 90s, these sounds and styles have finally earned the recognition they deserve, and we anticipate good press and a great deal of interest from experts and beginners alike.

Dave Thompson is the author of over a hundred books, including best selling biographies of Kurt Cobain, David Bowie, Cream and many more. His most recent publicat ions include the eye-witness punk saga London s Burning (Chicago Review Press), the Sparks biography Number One Songs In Heaven and a biography of The Sweet, Block Buster! , (both on Cherry Red Books) and the forthcoming Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell (Backbeat Books).

Random Precision - Recording the Music of Syd Barrett 1965-1974
Syd Barrett was the original lead guitarist and a founder member of the group Pink Floyd, and remains one of rock music's most enduring characters. He was the principle songwriter for the first Pink Floyd album 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn', and composed their 1967 hit single 'See Emily Play' before leaving the group in early 1968. He subsequently released two eccentric solo albums ('The Madcap Laughs' in 1969 and 'Barrett' in 1970) before withdrawing completely from the music business in the mid-1970's. Much has been written about his life, but here for the first time are the full details of all of his recording sessions - from his first semi-professional recordings with Pink Floyd in 1965 up to his last abandoned solo recording sessions at Abbey Road in 1974. The author David Parker was co-editor of the respected Syd Barrett fanzine 'Chapter 24', and has spent four years researching and writing the book, which is based principally on information obtained from the official archives at EMI Records and Abbey Road Studios. The book uses a diary format, and includes exclusive interviews with many of the recording producers and engineers involved, including Peter Jenner, Andrew King, Peter Bown, Alan Parsons and John Leckie. The book also includes rare photographs and illustrations, many previously unpublished. This is the most comprehensive, accurate and detailed account yet published of the background to the creation of Syd Barrett's unique musical legacy. Our Price: £16.49

Pig Irön IV
Pig Iron's 2010's "Blues+Power=Destiny" CD was described as "Bloody brilliant... simply a great album" by Powerplay magazine, filled with "Glorious riffage... crushingly heavy" according to KERRANG!, and by Classic Rock magazine as "Biker Metal Extraordinaire", which they were able to demonstrate in front of 10,000 Hells Angels at last year's Bulldog Bash festival.
Pig Iron return with a new studio album; ‘Pig Iron: IV’, now featuring new axe-slinger Dan Edwards, heralding a return to their bluesier roots, with more wailing harmonica and a "Plant-esque howl” from singer Johnny Ogle, with a sound that Classic Rock described as "Big Rock… It's no surprise the band look every inch the scary-ass cowboys theysound like."
With songs such as ‘Horseshoes & Hand Grenades’, ‘The Tide Within’ and ‘Low Grade Man’, this album is a definite progression from their previous three records, but also showcases a mellower side, with shades of Zeppelin's acoustic moments on 'The Curse Of An Aching Heart' and the instrumental 'Chapter 6'. This is also the band’s first release on the new Cherry Red hard rock imprint "Hear No Evil”, which launches this month. The band are due to hit the stage at 2012’s Hard Rock Hell to showcase the new album, and plan to tour the country in 2013 to support its release.
To quote Jerry Ewing in Metal Hammer: "Someone like Lynyrd Skynyrd should take these boys out on tour – they’d clean up!” For fans of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin Down and Black Sabbath.

Release Date: 26/11/2012
