When George Washington bade farewell to his officers, he did so in New York´s Fraunces Tavern. When Andrew Jackson planned his defense of New Orleans against the British in 1815, he met Jean Lafitte in a grog shop. And when John Wilkes Booth plotted with his accomplices to carry out a certain assassination, they gathered in Surratt Tavern. In America Walks into a Bar, Christine Sismondo recounts the rich and fascinating history of an institution often reviled, yet always central to American life. She traces the tavern from England to New England, showing how even the Puritans valued ´´a good Beere´´. With fast-paced narration and lively characters, she carries the story through the twentieth century and beyond, from repeated struggles over licensing and Sunday liquor sales, from the Whiskey Rebellion to the temperance movement, from attempts to ban ´´treating´´ to Prohibition and repeal. As the cockpit of organized crime, politics, and everyday social life, the bar has remained vital - and controversial - down to the present. In 2006, when the Hurricane Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act was passed, a rider excluded bars from applying for aid or tax breaks on the grounds that they contributed nothing to the community. Sismondo proves otherwise: the bar has contributed everything to the American story. In this heady cocktail of agile prose and telling anecdotes, Sismondo offers a resounding toast to taprooms, taverns, saloons, speakeasies, and the local hangout where everybody knows your name. 1.

´´This book is going to try and get as close as possible to the full story of what informed the noise of The Streets. Obviously that´s something I should be fairly well qualified to know about, and I´m going to be as honest as the publisher´s lawyers will allow.´´ With the 2001 release of The Streets´ debut single ´´Has It Come to This?´´ the landscape of British popular music changed forever. No longer did home-grown rappers have to anxiously defer to transatlantic influences. Mike Skinner´s witty, self-deprecating sagas of late-night kebab shops and skunk-fuelled Playstation sessions showed how much you could achieve simply by speaking in your own voice. In this thoroughly modern memoir, the man the Guardian once dubbed ´´half Dostoevsky… half Samuel Pepys´´ tells a freewheeling, funny and fearlessly honest tale of Birmingham and London, ecstasy and epilepsy, Twitter-fear and Spectrum joysticks, spread betting and growing up. He writes of his musical inspirations, role models and rivals, the craft of song writing, and reflects on the successes and failures of the decade-long journey of The Streets. 1. Language: English.

Various - Vol.3, Soma Records Story (180g)
€ 26.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

LP Compilation auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von Various Artists - Vol.3, Soma RECORDS Story (180g) The record world was a completely different place in 1965. Kids wanting to take home a piece of the rock ´n´ roll action they frugged to at the Armory dance last weekend or a wild tune they heard the local bossjocks spin on the way home from school, inevitably had to deal with seven-inchers made by independent record labels. The single was the thing in the mid-60´s, not the album. In even the hippest big city record emporiums, you could thumb through the entire recorded canon of British Invasion-influenced LPs - no more than a hundred or so - in about five minutes. But, ahhh, those singles. And nobody did them better than the shoebox companies sprouting up like bread mold all over the country, labels who could tap into the best local talent and get their show-stopping songs into the local record shops.Just about every sector of the US had its own scene, red hot local chart entries that kids three hundred miles away were destined to never hear. And that´s why the legendary indie labels - from International Artists in Houston or Autumn in San Francisco to Dunwich in Chicago or Etiquette in Tacoma - and hundreds more just as groovy, are revered today more than ever. The Soma Record Company of Minneapolis caught the national spotlight by releasing hits from the likes of the Castaways and the Gestures. But ´Liar Liar´ and ´Run, Run, Run´ are just the tip ofthe iceberg. If you´ve always suspected that thousands of great singles from the ´60s that you´ve yet to hear are lurking in the bushes, guess what´ You´re right. Step into the dusty Soma vaults with us - brush aside those cobwebs, if you would - point your flashlight towards the strobelight flickering at the far end of the tunnel and keep walking. When the cool Fender ´n Farfisa sounds finally grab you by the shirt collar, just keep telling yourself: ´This isn´t a dream. It´s what I was born to do.´

From the Introduction by Eric Elder There was a time when I almost gave up celebrating Christmas. Our kids were still young and weren´t yet hooked on the idea of Santa Claus and presents, Christmas trees and decorations. I had read that the Puritans who first came to America were so zealous in their faith that they didn´t celebrate Christmas at all. Instead they charged fines to businesses in their community who failed to keep their shops open on Christmas day. They didn´t want anything to do with a holiday that was, they felt, rooted in paganism. As a new believer and a new father myself, the idea of going against the flow of the excesses of Christmas had its appeal, at least in some respects. Then I read an article by a man who simply loved celebrating Christmas. He could think of no greater way to celebrate the birth of the most important figure in human history than throwing the grandest of parties for Him - gathering and feasting and sharing gifts with as many of his family and friends as possible. This man was a pastor of deep faith and great joy. For him, the joy of Christ´s birth was so wondrous that he reveled in every aspect of Christmas, including all the planning, decorating and activities that went along with it. He even loved bringing Santa Claus into the festivities, our modern-day version of the very real and very ancient Saint Nicholas, a man of deep faith and great joy as well who Himself worshipped and adored the Baby who was born in Bethlehem. So why not celebrate the birth of Christ? Why not make it the biggest party of the year? Why not make it the ´´Hap-Happiest season of all´´? I was sold. Christmas could stay - and my kids would be much hap-happier for it, too. I dove back into celebrating Christmas with full vigor, and at the same time took a closer look into the life of the real Saint Nicholas, a man who seemed almost irremovably intertwined with this Holy Day. I discovered that Saint Nicholas and Santa Claus ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Elder. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/028285/bk_acx0_028285_sample.mp3.

Short Story Press Presents The Gig by Cody Weinmann The audiobook The Gig is a story of American horror and tragedy that involves the downfall of a once-successful musician who had traveled the world, one coffee shop, one bar, and one stage at a time. Under the recession, he fell out of work. He began searching coffee shops, just begging different shop owners for work. He was never seen without his sax in hand, but after the 30th ´´No´´ from the 30th club or coffee house, he is sitting having coffee when he falls to the floor in a massive, convulsing seizure. In another pose, 24 hours after this attempt on his life, the devil threatens the musician´s life with another seizure and then a car wreck. In a saving grab, the musician is taken to heaven, where he´s listed as one of God´s musical heroes. You can call it a horror-cum-spiritual story, where fate and faith are tested multiple times. This story really brings to light just how difficult it is to live in and survive this dangerous world, where money is an ever-tightening resource. It also shows how the lack of money contributes to the downfall of other attributes to a person, including the individual´s health and mental capacity. This audiobook puts a new spin on horror and spirituality as a mix to remember. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Jones.
