  • von Bernard Sumner

    Als Gründungsmitglied von Joy Devision und später als Sänger und Gitarrist von New Order war Bernard Sumner integraler Bestandteil der pulsierenden Musikszene Manchesters der späten Siebziger- und Achtzigerjahre. Über die beiden legendären Bands wurde schon viel geschrieben und gesagt, Sumner selbst hielt sich aber in der Öffentlichkeit zurück. Bis jetzt ...Mitunter berührend, oft komisch und gelegentlich außer Kontrolle erzählt Sumner hier eine Story, in der einige der schillerndsten und kreativsten Charaktere der Musikgeschichte wie Ian Curtis, Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton oder Martin Hannett ihren Auftritt haben. Und auch, wenn es über den legendären Club Haçienda, über Joy Division und über New Order schon einige Filme und Bücher gibt: Nun ergreift zum ersten Mal Bernard Sumner selbst das Wort und erzählt die ganze Wahrheit.Bernard Sumner - New Order, Joy Division und ich führt zurück bis zu Sumners Kindheit im düsteren Arbeiterviertel Salford, es schildert den Aufstieg und Fall von Joy Division, den enormen künstlerischen und kommerziellen Erfolg der Band sowie den tragischen Tod ihres Sängers Ian Curtis 1980. Zudem gewährt Sumner einen großzügigen Blick hinter die Kulissen, er beschreibt, wie es zur Gründung von New Order kam, und verrät alles über die Entstehungsgeschichte der Klassiker "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "Atmosphere", oder "World In Motion".Bis heute haben New Order neun Studioalben und 38 Singles veröffentlicht - darunter auch die meistverkaufte 12-Inch-Vinylsingle aller Zeiten, "Blue Monday". Die Musik von New Order erschien auf den Soundtracks von Filmen wie Trainspotting, American Psycho und Pretty In Pink. Und New Order machen weiterhin Musik und spielen Konzerte rund um den Globus.

    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERTwo long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.Renegades: Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to their country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one white-looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself. It includes: Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches, including his "e;Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives Historical photographs and documents that provide rich visual context for their conversation. In a recording studio stocked with dozens of guitars, and on at least one Corvette ride, Obama and Springsteen discuss marriage and fatherhood, race and masculinity, the lure of the open road and the call back to home. They also compare notes on their favourite protest songs, the most inspiring American heroes of all time, and more. Along the way, they reveal their passion for-and the occasional toll of-telling a bigger, truer story about America throughout their careers, and explore how their fractured country might begin to find its way back toward unity.

    von Paul McCartney

    THE SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEARWinner of Non-Fiction Book of the Year, British Book Awards (Nibbies), 2022A self-portrait in 154 songs, by our greatest living songwriter'More often than I can count, I've been asked if I would write an autobiography, but the time has never been right. The one thing I've always managed to do, whether at home or on the road, is to write new songs. I know that some people, when they get to a certain age, like to go to a diary to recall day-to-day events from the past, but I have no such notebooks. What I do have are my songs, hundreds of them, which I've learned serve much the same purpose. And these songs span my entire life.' In this extraordinary book, with unparalleled candour, Paul McCartney recounts his life and art through the prism of 154 songs from all stages of his career - from his earliest boyhood compositions through the legendary decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his solo albums to the present. Arranged alphabetically to provide a kaleidoscopic rather than chronological account, it establishes definitive texts of the songs' lyrics for the first time and describes the circumstances in which they were written, the people and places that inspired them, and what he thinks of them now. Presented with this is a treasure trove of material from McCartney's personal archive - drafts, letters, photographs - never seen before, which make this also a unique visual record of one of the greatest songwriters of all time. We learn intimately about the man, the creative process, the working out of melodies, the moments of inspiration. The voice and personality of Paul McCartney sings off every page. There has never been a book about a great musician like it.Each volume is 480 pp, not available separately

    von Walter Isaacson
    14,00 - 23,00 €

    'This is a riveting book, with as much to say about the transformation of modern life in the information age as about its supernaturally gifted and driven subject' - Telegraph Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies,music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
