Download and read online The Best of Punk Globe Magazine in PDF and EPUB Ginger Coyote created Punk Globe Magazine in August 1977. She had seen a copy of the British fanzine Sniffing Glue and thought "Hey, I should do this!" San Francisco only had two music magazines and if you were not part of their clic, you got no exposure. Not only did she want to help underdog bands, she wanted to include people who attended the shows-sometimes they were the real entertainment. She also wanted to involve television and film. So in a way, Punk Globe Magazine was the original People Magazine. After the first couple of years the zine went from Xerox, to newsprint, to heavy stock, and eventually migrated to the Internet. 38 years later the magazine is still going strong with readers all over the world. This book includes stand-out interviews, together with brilliant photographs. Spotlighting a selection from the 38 years Punk Globe has been around - The Best of Punk Globe.

Download and read online Between the World and Me in PDF and EPUB Hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading,” a bold and personal literary exploration of America’s racial history by “the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States” (The New York Observer) #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER | NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER | PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST | NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST | NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • O: The Oprah Magazine • The Washington Post • People • Entertainment Weekly • Vogue • Los Angeles Times • San Francisco Chronicle • Chicago Tribune • New York • Newsday • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race,” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men—bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden? Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward. Praise for Between the World and Me “Powerful . . . a searing meditation on what it means to be black in America today.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “Eloquent . . . in the tradition of James Baldwin with echoes of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man . . . an autobiography of the black body in America.”—The Boston Globe “Brilliant . . . [Coates] is firing on all cylinders.”—The Washington Post “Urgent, lyrical, and devastating . . . a new classic of our time.”—Vogue “A crucial book during this moment of generational awakening.”—The New Yorker “Titanic and timely . . . essential reading.”—Entertainment Weekly

Download and read online Sounds of Glory in PDF and EPUB This book chronicles the most exciting generation of British music the world has ever seen. After 1976, the subversive firestorm of punk rock kicked open the door for hosts of other scenes. In rapid succession came Ska, New Mod, New Wave, anarcho-punk and Oi/street-punk. It was an explosion of madcap musical energy as incendiary as it was inspirational, created and performed by both geniuses and madmen. At the heart of this rock 'n' roll tsunami was SOUNDS magazine. And at the heart of SOUNDS was your narrator, Garry Bushell. Like his idols, Garry lived every day as if it was his last. Which it nearly was. Going to prison with the Angelic Upstarts, tripping into paranoid West Berlin with the Exploited before The Wall came down, fighting a world champion boxer...all in a day's work for our Garry. These were truly days of glory. Bushell joined The Specials and The Selecter as they toured the US for the first time. He hung out with Debbie Harry, feuded with Crass, skanked away with Madness, championed Secret Affair and managed the Cockney Rejects. From John Cooper Clarke to Right to Work marches, from Squeeze in South London to seedy German brothels, this volume is a unique record of raw and exciting bands, giant characters and radical ideas - all told with a twinkle in the eyes and a smile on the lip. Sounds Of Glory is a brilliant new memoir from one of Britain's most daring and controversial rock journalists. It's a must-read for anyone who loved Sounds and lived through the golden years of British rock and pop.
