              What makes New Wave... New Wave? It's the catchall name of punk's poppy offshoot, born in the 70s, simultaneously born in the United States and here in the United Kingdom. But how would you describe New Wave's context in the zeitgeist of the time, or explain how this new electro-...rock made people feel? Well, that's precisely what DJ and author Steve Wide explains in this handy book. In these pages, Steve explains the social and music industry climates of the 70s and 80s, unpacking the influence of the punk genre on NYC-based groups like the Velvet Underground and New York Dolls. There's also a timeline on the usage of the term New Wave - for a long chunk of the 70s it was used almost interchangeably with punk . There are breakdowns on the key record labels, DJs, producers, engineers and magazines - all of which stitched their own layer on the New Wave patchwork. There are deep dives into controversies, rivalries, and messy band breakups. And lastly, there's a dissection of how ripples of New Wave are still felt today, in recorded music and across wider pop culture.

              This book looks at the life, art, collaborations, films, friendships and fun surrounding the Fab Four - all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format. This tells the stories of their early days playing all-night sets in Hamburg and Liverpool, through the mop-top era, to experime...ntation in India and elevating pop music into an undisputed artform. The Beatles remain unrivalled in their effect on music and culture. This book is a glimpse into the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo: iconic and psychedelic albums; the hit singles; the producer George Martin's contributions to the music industry; and the eternal phenomenon of Beatlemania.

              Tokyo (EPUB ebook)

              By Mackintosh, Michelle; Wide, Steve

              Visiting Tokyo, whether for the first, second or hundredth time, is a life-changing experience. As a city, it's dynamic, exciting and resolutely individual - a mesmerising and unrivalled parade of fashion, design, architecture, and high culture experiences and, of course, the bes...t pop culture in the world. It's also a city of fascinating contrasts; whether you're standing in the middle of the Shibuya scramble, a blur of pedestrians rushing by, or standing before a small shrine, quiet and contemplative, you will feel Tokyo's intensity. This stunning travel and cultural guide is a celebration of the roots and the marvels of contemporary Tokyo. It's a tightly curated list of must-see places and experiences and must-do walks as well as the authors' tried-and-tested favourites. It's for people who want to get an up close and personal look at the real Tokyo - the food, the crafts, the hidden finds, the architectural marvels, where to go to get into the thick of it and where to go to escape the madness. This is a specially formatted fixed-layout ebook that retains the look and feel of the print book.
