(P/B) TOM WAITS' SWORDFISHTROMBONES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0473

Two entwined narratives run through the creation of Swordfishtrombones and form the backbone of this book. As the 1970s ended, Waits felt increasingly constrained and trapped by his persona and career. Bitter and desperately unhappy, he moved to New York in 1979 to change his life. It wasn't working. But at his low point, he got the phone call that changed everything: Francis Ford Coppola tapped Tom to write the score for One From the Heart. Waits moved back to Los Angeles to work at Zoetrope's Hollywood studio for the next 18 months. He c...

(P/B) AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO CELTIC SITES AND THEIR SAINTS
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0502

Most biographies of the Celtic saints are filled with legends and were written centuries after they lived. But the places where they lived and worked, generally in the more remote parts of their home or adopted countries can still be visited. Their chapels and huts are often placed in beautiful landscapes: sheltered valleys, sacred springs, peaceful lakeshores, sea caves, headlands and offshore islands. Archaeology, the study of sites and place-names, inscribed stones, and early texts can bring us closer to how these men and women lived an...

(P/B) SONIC YOUTH'S DAYDREAM NATION
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0499

Daydream Nation is the kind of gorgeous monstrosity (born of extremes, rife with difficulties, and mythic in proportion) that can crush the will of the most resilient, well-intentioned listener if the necessary preparations haven't been made. Matthew Stearns explores the album from a range of angles, including a track-by-track analysis and a look at the historical and cultural context within which the album was made. Featuring a foreword by Lee Ranaldo and exclusive interviews with the band, this truly is the definitive guide to Daydream N...

(P/B) LOGICS OF WORLDS
BEING AND EVENT II
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0479

Logics of Worlds is the sequel to Alain Badiou's much-heralded masterpiece, Being and Event. Tackling the questions that had been left open by Being and Event, and answering many of his critics in the process, Badiou supplements his pioneering treatment of multiple being with a daring and complex theory of the worlds in which truths and subjects make their mark - what he calls a materialist dialectic. The radical recasting of ontology in Being and Event is followed and complemented here by a thoroughgoing transformation in our very underst...

(P/B) DJ SHADOW'S ENDTRODUCING
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0501

What resonated about Endtroducing when it was released in 1996, and what makes it still resonate today, is the way in which it loosens itself from the mooring of the known and sails off into an uncharted territory that seems to exist both in and out of time. Josh Davis is not only a master sampler and turntablist supreme, he is also a serious archeologist with a world-thirsty passion (what Cut Chemist refers to as Josh's "spidey sense") for seeking out, uncovering and then ripping apart the discarded graces of some other generation - that ...

(P/B) THE MAGNETIC FIELDS' 69 LOVE SONGS
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0490

A fully illustrated oral history of the Magnetic Fields' 1999 triple album, 69 Love Songs - an album that was afforded "classic" status by many almost as soon as it was released. LD Beghtol's book is chatty, incestuous, funny, dark, digressive, sexy, maddening, and delightful in equal measures. It documents a vital and influential scene from the inside, involving ukuleles and tears, citations and footnotes, analogue drum machines, and floods of cognac. Oh, and a crossword puzzle too. The centre of the book is the secret history of these tu...

(P/B) APHEX TWIN'S SELECTED AMBIENT WORKS VOLUME II
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0491

Extravagantly opaque, willfully vaporous - Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II, released by the estimable British label Warp Records in 1994, rejuvenated ambient music for the Internet Age that was just dawning. In the United States, it was Richard D. James's first full length on Sire Records (home to Madonna and Depeche Mode) under the moniker Aphex Twin; Sire helped usher him in as a major force in music, electronic or otherwise. Faithful to Brian Eno's definition of ambient music, Selected Ambient Works Volume II was intention...

(P/B) DAVID BOWIE'S LOW
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0493

Los Angeles, 1976. David Bowie is holed up in his Bel-Air mansion, drifting into drug-induced paranoia and confusion. Obsessed with black magic and the Holy Grail, he's built an altar in the living room and keeps his fingernail clippings in the fridge. There are occasional trips out to visit his friend Iggy Pop in a mental institution. His latest album is the cocaine-fuelled Station To Station (Bowie: "I know it was recorded in LA because I read it was"), which welds R&B rhythms to lyrics that mix the occult with a yearning for Europe, aft...

(P/B) BOB DYLAN'S HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0492

Highway 61 Revisited resonates because of its enduring emotional appeal. Few songwriters before Dylan or since have combined so effectively the intensely personal with the spectacularly universal. In "Like a Rolling Stone," his gleeful excoriation of Miss Lonely (Edie Sedgwick? Joan Baez? a composite "type"?) fuses with the evocation of a hip new zeitgeist to produce a veritable anthem. In "Ballad of a Thin Man," the younger generation's confusion is thrown back in the Establishment's face, even as Dylan vents his disgust with the critics ...

(P/B) JOHNNY CASH'S AMERICAN RECORDINGS
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0494

This title offers a superb investigation of what is arguably Johnny Cash's greatest album, focusing on his enduring mythology. When Johnny Cash signed to Rick Rubin's record label in 1993, he was a country music legend who, like his fellow Highwaymen Willie, Waylon and Kris, remained a fondly regarded yet completely marginalized Nashville figure, unheard on the radio and unseen on the charts. Cash's odyssey from oldies act to folk hero pivots on his first American Recordings album, a document of almost unbearable solitude and directness. I...

(P/B) NIRVANA'S IN UTERO
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0496

Though Nevermind was Nirvana's most commercially successful album, and the record that broke them - and the grunge phenomenon - internationally, In Utero has increasingly become regarded as the band's best album, both by the critics and the band members themselves. Instead of sticking to the "grunge pop" formula that made Nevermind so palatable to the mainstream, Nirvana chose instead to challenge their audience, producing an album that the band's creative force, Kurt Cobain, said truly matched his vision of what he had always wanted his b...

(P/B) SIGUR ROS'S ( )
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0498

Words like "inspiring," "expansive," and "moving" are regularly used to describe Sigur Ros's ( ), and yet the only words heard on the record itself are a handful of meaningless nonsense syllables. The album has no title-or rather, its title is no title: just an empty pair of parentheses. The intention being that listeners will fill in the parentheses with their own title, their own interpretation of the sounds on the record. The CD sleeve consists of twelve pages that are essentially blank, lacking song titles, liner notes or production cr...

(P/B) THE PIXIES' DOOLITTLE
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0500

The Pixies have had a career unlike any other in alternative rock, disappearing as not-quite-the-next-big-things only to become gods in absentia. Doolittle is their knotty masterpiece, the embodiment of the Pixies' abrasive, exuberant, enigmatic pop. Informed by exclusive interviews with the band, Sisario looks at the making of the album and its place in rock history, and studies its continued influence in light of the Pixies triumphant reunion.

(P/B) PROUST AND SIGNS
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0365

Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. In Proust and Signs, Deleuze explores the work of art. He approaches the narrative of Proust's masterpiece, A La Recherche du Temps Purdu, as the apprenticeship of a man of letters. his concern is to come to a deeper understanding of the book and of art itself by tracing the network of signs laid in the text. Admired at its original appearance a...

A NEW PHILOSOPHY OF SOCIETY
ASSEMBLAGE THEORY AND SOCIAL COMPLEXITY
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0392

Manuel DeLanda is a distinguished writer, artist and philosopher. In his new book, he offers a fascinating look at how the contemporary world is characterized by an extraordinary social complexity. Since most social entitles, from small communities to large nation-states, would disappear altogether if human minds ceased to exist, Delanda proposes a novel approach to social ontology that asserts the autonomy of social entities from the conceptions we have of them.

(P/B) THE FOLD
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0292

In The Fold Deleuze proposes a new radical way of understanding philosophy and art. Leibniz drew on the art of the baroque period in his invention of the concept of the fold; Deleuze develops the concept further to present a new way of practising philosophy based upon the fold as the relationship of difference with itself.

(P/B) THE CONFLICT OF INTERPRETATIONS
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0159

The Conflict of Interpretations ranges across an astonishing diversity of fields: structuralism, linguistics, psychoanalysis, religion and faith. The essays it comprises are bound together by Ricoeur's customary concern for interpretation and language, and all bear the stamp of the systematic and critical thinking which has become his hallmark in contemporary philosophy.

(P/B) A HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY (VOLUME 7)
18th AND 19th CENTURY GERMAN PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0049

This volume of Copleston's A History of Philosophy looks at the idealist philosophies, and the reactions against them, that developed mainly in Germany in the nineteenth century. Copleston guides the reader through the work of the Post-Kantian idealists such as Schelling and Hegel, moving on to their various opponents such as Schopenhauer, Marx and Kierkegaard. He also discusses the Neo-Kantians and the influential work of Nietzsche. (from the publisher)...

(H/B) STOIC ETHICS
EPICTETUS AND HAPPINESS AS FREEDOM
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0487

Soon after Aristotle's death, several schools of ancient philosophy arose, each addressing the practical question of how to live a good, happy life. The two biggest rivals, Stoicism and Epicureanism, came to dominate the philosophical landscape for the next 500 years. Epicureans advised pursuing pleasure to be happy, and Stoics held that true happiness could only be achieved by living according to nature, which required accepting what happens and fulfilling one's roles. Stoicism, more than Epicureanism, attracted followers from many differ...
