(Aurum Press) Paperback, 13,3 x 20,3 x 2,5 cm, english, 432 page, 16 page color and b/w illustrations. In August 1964 The Kinks released their third single. After a little noticed debut and a follow-up that had failed to chart at all, Pye Records were threatening to annul the group’s contract. But with its unforgettable distorted guitar riff, ´´You Really Got Me” went on to reach No.1, entering the US Top Ten later the same year. Followed by a string of hits, it marked the breakthrough of one of Britain’s most innovative and influential bands, and a turning point in the fortunes of two brothers whose troubled story is as tumultuous and characterful as the music they produced: Ray and Dave Davies. Born into a deeply musical working-class family in London’s Muswell Hill, Ray and Dave grew up in a city recovering from the bombs and privations of the Second World War, and, more than any other musicians of the Sixties, they crafted the soundtrack that made it swing again. In songs such as ´´Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, ´´Sunny Afternoon” – which toppled The Beatles to become the hit of Summer 1966 – ´´Waterloo Sunset”, ´´Days” and ´´Lola”, they drew on music hall, folk and rhythm and blues to craft a peculiarly English pop idiom, inspiring generations of songwriters from David Bowie to Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn. Pocked by sibling rivalry, furious on-stage violence, walkouts, overdoses, a career-throttling ban from the US, gross self-indulgence, and the band´s curious rebirth as Eighties stadium rockers, the story laid bare in God Save The Kinks is one of the greatest in British pop history.
Ignored by virtually everyone upon its release in November 1968, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as one of the best British albums ever recorded. Here, Andy Miller traces the perilous circumstances surrounding its creation, and celebrates the timeless, perfectly crafted songs pieced together by a band who were on the verge of disintegration and who refused to follow fashion.Andy Miller is a writer living in London. His first book, Tilting at Windmills, was published in the UK by Viking in 2002.33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist´s entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen. 1. Language: English.

Tristan Weaver, accountant for a successful video game company, is in way over her head. Honestly answering a companywide survey and criticizing the sexist stereotypes used in the company´s games was enough to catch her boss´ attention. But speculating on his sex life within his earshot has unexpected consequences when her hot but nerdy boss invites her to model for him. Owner, artist, and lead developer of Brecken Games, Rory Brecken has a strict ´´no fraternizing with employees´´ rule. However, when he overhears Tristan´s conversation with her friend about his rumored kinks and begins to suspect her curiosity about the submissive side of sex, he´s more than a little tempted. When her interest is undeniably confirmed, he suggests a one-time only colleagues-with-benefits hookup. Though neither wants a relationship, once isn´t enough for either one of them. As their encounters become more intense, Rory makes a huge mistake that may cost him the woman he´s coming to love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tatiana Sokolov.
