We don't stock a lot of books - but this is just such an enjoyable read we thought it needed to be done. Here are the salesnotes - but seriously, get it! "As the son of the legendary showbiz lawyer Marty Machat, Steven grew up with people like Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Frankie Valli and Sam Cooke. Growing up in that environment, it wasn't surprising that he followed his father into the business and by the time he was in his late 20s, he was proud to see his name alongside his father's on the brass plaque outside their Broadway offices. But Steven discovered from a young age that … Read more

FAUST / KAMMERFLIMMER KOLLEKTIEF / VARIOUS - Klangbad: Avant-garde in the Meadows / Faust: Live at Klangbad, Klangbad
"From the makers of "monks: the transatlantic feedback" (German Adolf Grimme Award 2008) come two new direct cinema style documentary films.
One about the pop avant-garde music festival Klangbad, curated by legendary Hans-Joachim Irmler (founding member of the seminal Krautrock band Faust).
The second film captures one of the rare live performances by Faust. There are two kinds of rock festivals: the conventional and the adventurous ones. The former present music that everyone knows. Others are more experimental and put… Read more

Live

Ipecac

Format_dot_stuffDVD // £11.99

LIVE PERFORMANCE

Cat. Number: IPC96

This live document comes as a belated follow-up to the album Romance, in which Mike Patton teamed up with Norwegian soundtrack composer John Erik Kaada for a highly compelling meeting of styles. Patton's dextrous, eccentric vocal melds into the eerie Kaada soundscape making a kind of awkward sense. This live concert film captures a full-band line-up live at Roskilde 2005, with the whole ensemble smartly decked-out in '50's style suits and cast in a creepy black & white, there's something faintly surreal, and Lynchian about it all. The music has an overwhelmingly macabre feel to it, straddling lounge … Read more

This format features not only the sixteen-track live album but also the brilliant Emmett Malloy-directed tour documentary DVD. In addition to proper concert performances the documentary features great behind the scenes footage, plus excepts from some of the stranger, side-shows the band played (e.g. on a boat, in a bowling alley - that sort of thing) during their 2007 trek across Canada. The film is a pretty indispensible document for even the most casual of White Stripes fans, and the between-concert material alone makes the film pretty darn essential. On the au… Read more

DOCUMENTARY

Cat. Number: BEC5772406

A great package combining an audio CD capturing a live concert from San Francisco with a brilliant, often hysterical tour documentary DVD, which captures the french group in performance (romping through their own hits and even having a go at a particularly speaker-thrashing Master Of Puppets mash-up) behind the scenes on the road, getting arrested and brandishing firearms, which is actually a slightly worrying spectacle: they don't seem like the most responsible bunch. Given how 'shenanigens'-heavy the documentary is, the CD seems like an entirely necessary document, reminding you that J… Read more

Mario Monicelli

Mediane Libri

Format_dot_stuffBook and CD // £17.99

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: CK5502

When classic Italian directors get extensive coverage beyond their native land, it tends to be the usual suspects: the Neoealist crowd (Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti, Antonioni et al) or horror icons of the '70s like Argento and Fulci. Consequently you'd seldom run into a career retrospective of Mario Monicelli, an incredibly prolific, influential filmmaker, but one whose output leans towards comedy, which inevitably means that Monicelli misses out on some of the international attention he deserves. While we might not hear his name dropped too often nowadays, Monicelli was cour… Read more

Don't expect any actual Daft Punk tunes accompanying the surreal antics of the two robot leads, instead the stark, slow moving mise en scene features a host of droning ambient accompaniments, engine sounds, bits of Brian Eno, Sebastian Tellier, Chopin, plus the odd Todd Rundgren hit thrown into the bargain.

Legendary Factory Records post-punkers Section 25 are on the cusp of releasing their latest album so it seems just about the right time to launch this live DVD on the world. Formed back in 1978 when the planet was just that little bit easier to get along with, the band ended up touring with Joy Division, Durutti Column and A Certain Ratio among other bands and released four albums for Factory Records before disbanding in 1986. Eventually the band reformed in 2001, and the performances captured here are from their 2006 tour. This is stunning stuff showing the return of an under-appreciated part … Read more
