Release Date: 2000-04-01
Genre: Music

Writing The 100 Greatest Rock'n'Roll Songs Ever was a labor of love. Written while on Sabbatical leave from my day job, it is one listener's snapshot of the genre, from the mid-'50's to the present, filtered through my personal life experiences. My purpose for writing this book was to acknowledge the major role that the music has played in my life. My wish for the reader is to stimulate memories of your own favorite songs and of the rock'n'roll vernacular and experiences shared by many of us.

Genre: Fiction

Funnys BAföG-Anspruch ist erloschen und sie entscheidet sich, als Stripperin ihr Geld zu verdienen. Bei ihrer Arbeit beobachtet sie sich selbst genauso konsequent wie die, die sie beim Ausziehen beobachten, und beginnt, ihre Eindrücke aufzuschreiben. So entsteht die Arbeitsbiographie der Funny van Money, ein Erlebnisbericht im Gonzo-Stil, in dem sie mit unverwüstlichem Humor den hohen Unterhaltungswert der Tabledance-Branche sowie deren Abgründe wiedergibt. Dabei agiert sie weder als betroffene Rotlichtbekennerin noch als milieuromantische Erzählerin, sondern gewährt einen unvoreingenommenen Blick in eine Welt jenseits des Ausbildungsförderungsgesetzes.

Rock and Hard Places

Author: Andrew Mueller
Publisher: Soft Skull Press

Release Date: 2010-02-10
Genre: Music

Andrew Mueller is Australian by birth, a Londoner by choice, a wanderer by nature, and a journalist by profession. Unable to decide between being a rock critic, travel writer, or foreign correspondent, he hit upon the novel, if time-consuming, solution of trying to be all three at once. In Rock and Hard Places, published originally in the U.K. in 1999, now re-envisioned and updated and available for the first time in the United States, he travels to Lebanon with the Prodigy, comes to America with Radiohead, and goes all over the place with U2. He ventures to Bosnia Herzegovina with an aid convoy in the middle of the war, sees Def Leppard play in a cave in Morocco, and attempts to ask the Taliban not only what they think they’re up to, but who they fancy for the World Cup. He flings himself head first down the Cresta Run, sits in Stalin’s armchair, chases ambulances through Moscow, chases some kind of lost tribe in India, wakes up at least once in a park in Reykjavik, and strongly advises avoiding the seafood salad in Sapporo Airport. He’s funny. Occasionally he makes a point.
