Sexbeat s self-titled song is definitive of the postpunk scene. It describes the originality, the freedom and the communal spirit of a subculture: old, young, poor, and rich a group that accepted it all. Released in 1983, the song is a generation s anthem about a scene caught between the outbreak of punk and grunge. With more complexity than punk and more darkness than pop s cheerful mentality, postpunk maintained prosperity because of its atmosphere and romance. The movement in its inception was nameless. It, as we found, has many definitions and associations. Some original members of the scene referred to themselves as punks, others new romantics, new wavers, the bats, or the morbids, for example. Goth often did not become a term until the late 1980s or, in some countries such as Peru, a label in the 1990s. Therefore, postpunk in all its variety, is deemed as the "single" word that encompasses all evolutions of the 1980s proto-punk alternative movement. In one decade, the genre evolved, grew darker and crossed borders: from Argentina to the Netherlands, Greece to Canada and Belgium to Japan. Even though the postpunk and goth timeline varied between countries, the movement began at approximately 1978 and concluded around 1992. Some regions reflected the economic challenges and sentiments towards social issues, while others relied on the individual desire to gain solace in a subculture that accepted diversity. To identify and encompass the words postpunk and goth are arduous since everyone has a different perspective on such definitions. There is no "one "truth about their timeline or attributes. Therefore, this book""is about the music, the individual, and the creativity of a worldwide community rather than theoretical definitions of a subculture. Though not a complete historical essay on postpunk and goth, "Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace" is a visual and oral history of the first decade of the scene. The team found and interviewed both the performers and the audience in order to capture the community both on and off stage. Participants of the project dug through their personal archives for photographs of their past and these are placed alongside professional photography. By combining both personal collections and professional images, a unique range of fashions, bands and scenes are revealed within these pages. "

Music breeds duality. We enjoy the music we love-listening to it, talking about it, reading about it. But it's just as fun to passionately revel in mocking the music we hate. Fortunately, musicians make this two-lane path very easy to follow. Half the time they're creating timeless works of art that speak to the soul; the other half, they're recording ridiculous concept albums about robots. I Love Rock 'n' Roll (Except When I Hate It) covers both sides: It celebrates the music world's flashes of genius, the creation of masterpieces, and the little-known stories...as well as the entertainingly bad ideas. Armed with a healthy dose of Brian Boone's humorous asides and lively commentary, you'll learn extremely important stuff like: ? How bands got their stupid names ? All alternative rock bands directly descend from Pixies ? The most metal facts of metal in the history of metal ? The secret lives of one-hit wonders ? The story behind "Layla," and other assorted love songs about George Harrison's wife ? What is quite possibly the worst song in rock history Boone also reveals terribly useful information like chart trivia, the rules of music, lists, and many more origins, meanings, and stories about everyone's most loved and loathed musicians.

Sex and Drugs Before the Rock ’n’ Rollis a fascinating volume that presents an engaging overview of what it was like to be young and male in the Dutch Golden Age. Here, well-known cohorts of Rembrandt are examined for the ways in which they expressed themselves by defying conservative values and norms. This study reveals how these young men rebelled, breaking from previous generations: letting their hair grow long, wearing colorful clothing, drinking excessively, challenging city guards, being promiscuous, smoking, and singing lewd songs. Cogently argued, this study paints a compelling portrait of the youth culture of the Dutch Golden Age, at a time when the rising popularity of print made dissemination of new cultural ideas possible, while rising incomes and liberal attitudes created a generation of men behaving badly.

At the height of the hair-metal craze, when the airwaves were dominated by ear-shredding guitar solos played by men clad in lace gloves, cowboy boots, and tight denim, when Aqua Net was more precious than gold, when MTV actually played music videos and not just shows like Pimp My Locker, a band named Onyxxx (one X wasn’t nearly enough) came close to making it big. What stopped Onyxxx from taking its place beside legendary bands like Poison, Guns N’ Roses, and Mötley Crüe? Sex, drugs, groupies, . . . and geometry homework. Craig Williams, Onyxxx’s red-haired, head-banging guitarist, tells his tale of near rock stardom in Mom, Have You Seen My Leather Pants? With a manager who was a dead ringer for Loni Anderson, club owners willing to offer sexual favors and limo rides, and scads of California girls lifting their shirts and screaming their names, Craig knew what it was to be a star—until he realized that Onyxxx wasn’t the second coming of Warrant. They just weren’t that good. And Craig wasn’t having fun anymore. A music memoir for any child of the 1980s and ’90s, a nostalgic trip down Sunset Strip, and a hilarious tribute to a musical era we can only hope will never have a resurgence, Mom, Have You Seen My Leather Pants? will give you an appetite for destruction.
