              Provides a window into a moment when both phantasmatic and real relationships between straightness and queerness, between blackness and whiteness, and between utopia and dystopia, were in flux; Bowie in the mid-1970s both exemplified and had a hand in creating the complex and con...tradictory opening of possibilities now seen as the hallmark of that decade --

              The Original Broadway Cast Recording's Hamilton

              The Original Broadway Cast Recording's Hamilton (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Branden Jacobs-Jenkins carefully retraces Hamilton's origins as the musical that brought politicians from both sides of the aisle, from Michelle Obama calling it the best work of art [she's] even seen in any medium to Hillary Clinton's quoting it at the end of her 2016 speech at ...the Democratic National Convention. This book squares the emergence of Hamilton as a cultural darling of the American leftist political classes with its portraits of a morally-questionable political figures in history told through the merging of two forms with notoriously radical roots. It parses how and why this Broadway musical reached the height of visibility that it has and what this communicates about the American sociopolitical climate and culture at the beginning of the 21st century - especially after one of the most discordant and alarming sociopolitical showdowns since the 19th century. And ultimately, though Hamilton is a perfectly enjoyable and impressively crafty piece of musical theater, it argues that it in many ways is not, in fact, revolutionary. Does Hamilton engage seriously with politics? Or is politics merely the backdrop for the same-old show business?

              Manic Street Preachers' The Holy Bible

              In August 1994, Manic Street Preachers released The Holy Bible, a dark, fiercely intelligent album that explored such themes as mental illness, murder and war. Richey Edwards, the band's lyricist and motive force, vanished five months later; he was never found. In his absence The... Holy Bible entered the rock canon alongside Joy Division's Closer and Nirvana's In Utero, the valedictory works of troubled young men. This book tells the dramatic story of Manic Street Preachers' masterpiece. Tracing the album's origins in the Valleys, an industrialised region of South Wales where the band spent their formative years, the author argues that The Holy Bible can be seen as a meditation on the uses and abuses of history.

              Two emcees from the Bronx, NY entered the American hip-hop landscape of the mid-1990s with comprehensive insider slang that bewildered as they radiated the look of a bygone era of black culture. Geechie Suede and Sonny Cheeba are the members of Camp Lo. In 1996, they collaborated... with producer Ski and a host of other hip-hop recordists to create Uptown Saturday Night, which featured the seminal single Luchini (a.k.a. This is It). In the mid-1990s, hip-hop contained an assortment of sounds and imagery, into which Camp Lo inserted a concentrated dose of 1970s Blaxploitation culture. As a tapestry of 1970s black popular culture, this volume details how the fantastic musical world of Uptown Saturday Night was borrowed from the films of that era-particularly the Sidney Poitier film from which the album's name is derived-and positions the album as an essential example of Mark Anthony Neal's post-soul aesthetic. The book is informed by interviews of Camp Lo, album producer Ski, autobiographical accounts by A&R/co-author Will Fulton, and musical and cultural analyses that details the development of the album and how its contents instigated a re-membering of black culture.
