EXTRAORDINARY RECORDS


This book describes vinyl-mania. This highly original collection, made in collaboration with "Colors" magazine, brings new meaning to the term 'album art' - what's featured is not record covers but records themselves, in a plethora of colors, shapes, and forms. This book showcases over 400 records owned by Guinness-award-winning collector Alessandro Benedetti. From artists such as Pink Floyd, Queen, the Beatles, Prince, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Bon Jovi, and many others, these rare and valuable records run the gamut from gold to transparent to painted, photo-printed, or shaped like a map, butterfly, heart, star, or even a tree!

FACTORY RECORDS

THE COMPLETE GRAPHIC ALBUM


Between 1978 and 1992, Factory was one of the most important record labels in Britain. It launched the careers of Joy Division, New Order and the Happy Mondays, to name but a few; it opened the legendary Haçienda club and Dry bar; and it introduced to music the concept of high-quality, cutting-edge design. The visual languages developed alongside the music, by designers such as Peter Saville, Central Station Design and 8vo, are still widely recognized and imitated today. 

Factory Records documents the label’s entire visual legacy and its role in bringing design into the mainstream. Every item with a famous Factory inventory number is illustrated or listed, including album sleeves, singles, special editions, flyers, posters, stationery and architectural projects. With a foreword by Tony Wilson, Factory’s charismatic record label owner and nightclub manager, this book amply conveys the energy, creativity and enthusiasm of one of the most dynamic (and chaotic) record labels ever.

MUTE

A VISUAL DOCUMENT

FROM 1978 -> TOMORROW


Daniel Miller created Mute Records to release his debut single (‘Warm Leatherette’/’T.V.O.D’), a pioneering electronic sound with a defiantly DIY attitude. Mute quickly established a reputation for releasing cutting-edge, chart-topping music and through the music of its community of artists – ranging from Fad Gadget, Moby, Can, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Einstürzende Neubauten to Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Erasure, Laibach, Goldfrapp, Liars and Ben Frost – it has had an incalculable impact on popular music for four decades. 

Mute: A Visual Document is packed with stunning artwork and photography – much of it previously unseen – from the Mute Archives and Daniel Miller’s personal archives, including photography and video stills from legendary photographers, conceptual artworks, rare ephemera and equipment. 

Comprehensive discographies, a family tree of Mute artists, an extensive introduction and commentary by Daniel Miller, who has curated the materials for the book, plus anecdotal and photographic contributions from key figures in the label’s story, including Moby, Alison Goldfrapp, Anton Corbijn, Bleddyn Butcher, Brian Griffin, Jon Spencer, Barry Adamson, Ivan Novak, Angus Andrew, Adrian Shaughnessy, Tom Hingston, make this book the definitive chronicle of the label.

THIS AIN’T NO DISCO

NEW WAVE ALBUM COVERS


Why did Frankie say "Relax"? Did anyone really want to hurt Boy George? And why didn't anybody walk in L.A.? This Ain't No Disco can't answer all these head-scratchers, but it does bring the New Wave era back with page after totally awesome page of 300 of the best album covers. This rad collection includes covers from the late 1970s to the mid-'80s and will have true believers of a certain generation totally spazzing. New Wave was defined as much by style, fashion, and graphic design as the music itselfwitness the ruffled cuffs and heavy makeup of the New Romantics, the skinny ties and peg-pants of the neo-Mods, and the unsettling robotic personae of Devo and Gary Numan. Bursting with wild hairstyles, futuristic typography, pastel shapes, and outlandish clothing, these are the album covers that defined an era and continue to influence music and fashion styles today. A nostalgic trek with a mental soundtrack, This Ain't No Disco will inspire readers to don those rubber bracelets once again and proclaim, "Let's dance this mess around!"

PLATTENKISTEN

EXKURSIONEN IN DIE VINYLKULTUR


Das Buch Plattenkisten ist eine Hommage an das Gesamtkunstwerk Schallplatte. Es porträtiert besondere Persönlichkeiten und einzigartige Orte des Vinyl-Liebhabertums in Wort und Bild und nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Exkursion zu den Refugien des guten Geschmacks. Jörn Morisse und Felix Gebhard haben sich als Geheimagenten unter die schreckhafte Spezies der Vinyl-Connaisseure gemischt und lassen sich über den Umweg des Mediums Schallplatte persönliche Geschichten erzählen: Geschichten über Obsessionen, die Fehler der Plattenindustrie, wie man als Unternehmer auf Krisen reagiert, warum der Record Store Day so kontrovers gesehen wird und ob analog wirklich besser ist. Plattenkisten zeigt die Menschen hinter ihren Plattensammlungen, setzt sich mit den wirtschaftlichen Aspekten des Vinylcomebacks auseinander und gibt Auskunft darüber, wie es ist, in einem Plattenladen zu arbeiten.

Nicht nur die Besitzer unabhängiger Plattenläden kommen in Plattenkisten zu Wort; auch Presswerker, Labelbesitzer, Archivare, Musiker und DJs, Sammler wie Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) und Chris von Rautenkranz (Mastering Engineer u. a. für Slime, Blumfeld, Kraftklub) stehen ebenso Rede und Antwort wie Verkaufsleiter großer Elektronikfachmärkte und Hersteller von High-End-Plattenspielern. Sie alle werden zu ihrem Verhältnis zur Analog-Kultur befragt und erklären in O-Ton-Protokollen, wie viel Musik- und Sozialgeschichte, Identität oder auch Protest von einem Stück Vinyl ausgehen kann. Persönliche Musikvorlieben und große individuelle Popinitiationsmomente kommen dabei nicht zu kurz.

1000 RECORD COVERS


Unique in its scope and choice 1000 Record Covers, in a new flexi-cover format, illustrates how Rock is not just music but a way of life, an attitude and a style. By definition, rock music is for the moment; today's hit is tomorrow's oldie, probably destined for oblivion. The same applies to album covers. Designed by innovative artists and photographers, they hit the popular nerve of the moment and a good cover can help underwrite an album's success. 1000 Record Covers collect the most important covers of the Rock Era, from Megahits to obscure collectors' items: a history of almost half a century's music in miniature.

SLEEVEFACE – BE THE VINYL


This hilarious book immortalizes the craze that began while DJ Carl Morris was having a bit of fun in a Wales bar. Here is how Sleevefacing works: You find an old-school vinyl record sleeve with a nice head-shot of your musical icon (Elvis or David Bowie or Debbie Harry will do nicely), put the sleeve in front of your face, and strike a pose. Now get someone to snap your photo.

This growing Web phenomenon has its own Web site (sleeveface.com), Facebook presence, and thousands of inventive practitioners around the globe. Sleeveface compiles the cleverest of these images: the faux Morrisseys, wannabe Bob Dylans, and lookalike Madonnas whose posture and clothing is in perfect sync with their idols’ most classic record covers. With essays that celebrate the merits of vinyl in an age when music has gone digital, it will appeal to record collectors, music lovers across the generations, and anybody—which is to say everybody—who ever fancied him or herself a rock god.
