SID VICIOUS Benefit Gig 1978 By mick mercer
Paperback: $31.31
Prints in 3-5 business days
This colour book contains 104 colour photos of the gig that was held to raise monies for the Sid Vicious legal fund when he was facing a charge of murder in New York following the death of Nancy... More > Spungen. Colour photos cost a fortune back in 1978 and three rolls were the equivalent of a week’s wages, mad as that might seem, so this was an unusual experiment for me. Not all the photos are good, as I went right down the front, and you can imagine what that was like but this is a good reminder of a gig from which no bootlegs are known to exist, so this can be the one lasting testament. There are 4 photos of Phil Rambow (with Mick Jones and Glen Matlock in his band), 30 of The Innocents, 36 of The Slits, 34 of The Clash. Sorry about the price, but colour books cost a lot more to do than their black and white equivalents, and I figured this one deserved the full colour treatment.< Less
The Virgin Discography: The 1970s By Mark Jones

Many of the resulting LPs are now considered to be... More > important cultural reference points – is there anyone who hasn't heard of Tubular Bells? In 1977 Virgin signed the Sex Pistols. A horde of punk and new wave bands followed, such as XTC, Magazine, The Ruts and - as the Sex Pistols imploded – PIL. Later, the iconic Front Line label was responsible for some of the best reggae ever heard, from artists such as U-Roy, Tapper Zukie, I-Roy, Keith Hudson, The Gladiators, Culture and the Twinkle Brothers. This book covers the ‘classic’ years and is an absolute must for anyone with half an ear open. During the 1970s Virgin defined the nation’s – if not the world’s – musical taste. All known releases on all related labels are documented – from Tubular Bells to numerous forgotten gems that deserve much greater recognition. The Rawtenstall Concertina Orchestra anyone?< Less

The Palace and the Punks By Tony Hill
Paperback: $17.21

More > Rollers, Hot Chocolate, soul legends Ben E king, Geno Washington, Edwin Starr, reggae greats Desmond Dekker and Jimmy Cliff, heavy metal acts UFO, Judas Priest, Saxon. Then came the punk rock and new wave explosion - The Stranglers, The Vibrators, UK Subs, The Members, The Ruts, Angelic Upstarts, Ultravox, Adam and the Ants, The Pretenders, Toyah, The Specials, Simple Minds. Inevitably with punk, violence flared, culminating in the Angelic Upstarts riot gig that has gone down in Jacksdale folklore. The Palace and the Punks tells the amazing, hilarious (imagine a 1970’s Phoenix Nights if Top of the Pops was filmed there), and occasionally sad, true story of the Grey Topper, centred around its last rise and fall and pogo in 1979. From the same author of the acclaimed If the Kids are United. www.manutdbooks.com< Less
