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 »
