            What if the things we keep hidden say more about us than those we put on display? We all have a random collection of the things that made us - photos, tickets, clothes, souvenirs, stuffed in a box, packed in a suitcase, crammed into a drawer. When Jarvis Cocker starts clearing ou...t his loft, he finds a jumble of objects that catalogue his story and ask him some awkward questions- Who do you think you are? Are clothes important? Why are there so many pairs of broken glasses up here? From a Gold Star polycotton shirt to a pack of Wrigley's Extra, from his teenage attempts to write songs to the Sexy Laughs Fantastic Dirty Joke Book, this is the hard evidence of Jarvis's unique life, Pulp, 20th century pop culture, the good times and the mistakes he'd rather forget. And this accumulated debris of a lifetime reveals his creative process - writing and musicianship, performance and ambition, style and stagecraft. This is not a life story. It's a loft story.

            This guitar songbook contains 50 classic songs from the early days of rock 'n' roll and rockabilly - songs made famous by artists such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Bill Hale...y. The songs are ideal for beginner guitarists as well as experienced guitarists who haven't ventured far into the world of 1950s rock 'n' roll before. Most can be played with just 3 chords, and you need only 4 chords to play all 50 songs! These include: 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'Tutti Frutti', 'That'll Be The Day', 'Rock and Roll Ruby', 'Rock Around the Clock', 'Johnny B Goode', 'Be-Bop-a-Lula', 'Jailhouse Rock', and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On'. Each song has been carefully selected and arranged for guitar and is presented over a double-page spread with chords above the lyrics. There is also valuable instruction in how to strum the guitar when playing rock 'n' roll, and a useful explanation of the 12-bar blues chord structure of many of the songs. All profits from sales are donated to Save the Children.

            Yes Is The Answer: And Other Prog Rock Tales

            Yes Is The Answer: And Other Prog Rock Tales (Trade Paperback / Paperback, First Trade Paper Edition)

            Edited by Weingarten, Marc; Cornell, Tyson; Contributions by Moody, Rick; Bock, Charles; Greenland, Seth

            Progressive rock is maligned and misunderstood. Critics hate it. Hipsters scoff at it. A topographic journey into a 21st-century schizoid land of prog-lit, Yes Is the Answer is a pointed rebuke to the prog-haters and the first literary anthology devoted to the subgenre. Featuring... acclaimed novelists Rick Moody, Wesley Stace, Seth Greenland, Charles Bock, and Joe Meno, as well as musicians Nathan Larson and Peter Case, Yes Is the Answer is the first book that dares to thoughtfully reclaim prog-rock as a subject worthy of serious consideration.
