Brighter Day: A Jellyfish Story
Price: $35.00
Artist: Brighter Day: A Jellyfish Story
Description: Written by the New York Times best selling author Craig Dorfman, this book takes us inside the 90’s least appreciated (by the masses), but most appreciated (by power pop fans the world over), and most misunderstood band. Andy Sturmer and Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. Met as teenagers in the fall of 1980. Less than fifteen years later, the two of them had won jazz contests, written commercial jingles, become pen pals, joined a band with a San Francisco new wave icon, formed their own group, sparked a major label bidding war, recorded two critically acclaimed records, toured the world (twice), worked with a legendary producer, and backed a Beatle! In 1994 they agreed that their musical partnership, as well as their friendship, was over. They shook hands, wished each other well, and left. They have not spoken since. In the years that followed Jellyfish’s breakup, the band’s legacy grew. Fans devoted hours to analyzing every note of their two records. Power pop bands around the world worked to recreate their sound. Not Lame’s 2002 box xet “Fan Club” sold out three pressings – more thyan 8,000 units, in six months! Radio mainstays including Rooney, fun., The Darkness, and Drake Bell have all cited them as an influence. Beck’s touring band includes two ex-Jellyfish members (Roger Manning and Jason Falkner). And through it all, music lovers have wondered what drove Roger and Andy apart, and if they’d ever reunite. Drawing from dozens of interviews with all of the major – and many minor – characters in the Jellyfish story to create one seamless master narrative, “Brighter Day: A Jellyfish Story” follows the course of that friendship from its earliest days in Pleasanton, CA through the two decades of silence in search of the answer to the nagging fan question “Why, oh why, isn’t there more Jellyfish music?” GREAT!! ... read more »

Gabba Gabba Hey! – A Conversation With The Ramones
Price: $23.00
Artist: Carl Cafarfelli
Description: Carl Cafarelli is the co-host (with Dana Bonn) of the long-running weekly broadcast and internet radio show This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl. When he's not playing records and yelling into the microphone, he has been writing about rock 'n' roll, pop music, and pop culture for nearly forty years. The Ramones were arguably the single most influential rock 'n' roll act to emerge from that curious muddle of magic and mediocrity called the 1970’s. Two of the group's founding members - singer Joey Ramone and bassist Dee Dee Ramone - didn't live to see the Ramones become icons of popular culture, hear their music in TV commercials, or experience the unlikely adoption of "Blitzkrieg Bop" as a sports anthem. Guitarist Johnny Ramone barely lived long enough to see it begin, and drummer Tommy Ramone's death in 2014 wrote finis to the mortal part of the Ramones' story. The legend endured. In 1994, as the Ramones celebrated their 20th anniversary, then-current members Joey, Johnny, drummer Marky, and bassist C. J. knew the group's Road To Ruin would soon approach its end. Given an opportunity to assess where they'd been and what was left to do, they agreed to a series of interviews discussing the entirety of the Ramones' story. This is that story: a career-spanning discussion of the Ramones' career, an intimate glimpse at how the Ramones viewed their work, their experiences, their impact, their legacy, their fans, and each other. It's a unique and fascinating peek into what it was like to be one of the few, the proud, the Ramones. For the first time, you can read the Ramones' published comments about their own history, and much, much more than ever could have fit into a single magazine issue. “’Gabba Gabba Hey’, I’m reminded of the excitement and uniqueness of this band that saved rock ’n’ roll. There was never anyone else like them, and all of the joy and bedlam and fire and dedication that fueled the Ramones can be found in these pages. All that’s missing is a Dee Dee-shouted “1-2-3-4” intro.” - Jeff Tamarkin “A comprehensive and insightful look at one of the most important bands ever. ‘Gabba Gabba Hey’ feels like sitting down with old friends. Comfortable, engaging, and hard to forget." - Alex Segura GREAT!! ... read more »
