Books on bands/genres/scenes
« on: May 07, 2023, 07:48:49 AM »
Any books yaíll might recommend?

This music leaves stains, the complete story of the misfits - knowing how private Danzig can be, much respect to this author for writing this book

Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones - More then any other recording session, I wish I could have been a fly in the room during this era of music

Biography of a Phantom: A Robert Johnson Blues Odyssey: compelling

Please Kill Me - I assume a lot of people had read it. Itís the type of book that can easily be revisited.

Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements
The One and Only: Peter Perrett, Homme Fatale - what a life

This is a great read for fans of punk & black flag

Also really enjoy Marvin Gaye's biography

Also, if you go and check out the No Dogs in Space instagram, they've been posting all of  Carolina's reading lists for her research for each band.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of regular kids and a van full of paraplegics.

Scar Tissue. Anthony Keidis from RHCP autobiography, remember reading it and being blown away. Dudes lived a wild life and made it through the other side. Highly recommend, good read.

I read that book and hated it. Keides really needs to get off his own dick and the state of Californias too

Canít recommend Get In The Van enough. Also the reason I have an intense fear of jerusalem crickets now.
Can someone explain in Fortnite terms?

U-god's book is fantastic. My mom and I both love it. His talent for storytelling in his verses translates incredibly well to telling his life story through a book. He's got a fascinating life story both in and outside of Wutang and the book gives a very interesting insight to the situations that prevented him from getting as much as the other members of Wu. I was always a big fan of his but this book made me respect him even more. He also provides a very great look into Wutang's story as whole as well. I'd recommend this book to any Wutang fan and possibly even non Wutang fans

I don't read much but music books are my favourites:

-Girl in a band: Kim Gordon/Sonic Youth
-Things The Grandchildren Should Know: Mark Oliver Everet / EELS
-Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo and the Rise of Indie Rock

I am very interested in reading about Emo/Hardcore but I never found anything in Europe, hopefully someone can recommend me a good title.

If anybody wants to read something that's a bit more based in music theory, then Joseph Schloss book on sample based hip hop the best I've read :)
