Guns, Cash and Rock'n'Roll - Steve Overbury
Guns, Cash and Rock'n'Roll: The Managers
Steve Overbury
The book celebrates this special breed – often flawed low achievers but true believers, hard-nosed wheeler-dealers and schemers who were as at home talking to drug dealers and the mafia as they were to corporate lawyers. The music business has a hopeless allure for extreme characters and encourages extreme behaviour. Of the twelve managers featured, at least five of them were drug enthusiasts and four of them liked having guns to hand.
The King of Carnaby Street - Jeremy Reed
The King of Carnaby Street
Jeremy Reed
John Stephen drove a purple and gold Cadillac and suffered bouts of manic depression that meant he had no need for the drug scene of the day, where speed in the form of 'purple hearts' fuelled all-night raves. As Jeremy Reed reveals in this fascinating new biography of a relatively neglected figure, Stephen ultimately became an icon of the swinging sixties and the Mods.

Boom! - Ted Polhemus
Boom! and Orbiting Neptune
Two new books by Ted Polhemus
As the baby boom generation grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s the world changed as never before – ‘youth culture’ became where it’s AT, ditto ‘pop culture’ which for the first time in history triumphed over elitist High Culture, likewise, ‘streetstyle’ overshadowed High Fashion as the driving force decreeing what is ‘In’ and what is ‘Out’, America and then ‘Swinging London’ made chic Paris look passé and the ‘counterculture’ challenged (and then became) The Establishment.
Throughout all this I had the good fortune to be in the right place at the right time. Now, as ‘My Generation’ enters old age, my new books BOOM! and Orbiting Neptune explore how the world was (and wasn’t) shaped by the Boomers – and, crucially, considers what a post-Boomer world will look like.

Orbiting Neptune is a pictorial companion to BOOM! and is available print-on-demand and as an e-book download

The book not only covers growing up in Liverpool during the 50's and early 60's but also includes early recollections of the mythical place only a bus ride away know as the Cavern together with the overall Merseybeat sound which at that time 1962 was only just starting to grow.
