Pride and Glory: The Art of the Rockers' Jacket
Pride and Glory: The Art of the Rockers' Jacket
by Horst A. Friedrichs
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars A must if you like the classic 'Rockers' leather jacket, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I was doing up a leather biker jacket in the rocker style. Only a fairly obsessive German photographer could have put it together! Full of great pictures mostly taken from the present day 'rocker' classic bike scene. My only criticism is that it does revolve around a fairly tight small London based scene as far as I can tell. A great coffee table book it's very high quality with thick paper pages and some serious weight to it...

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all Rockers!, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic book that has been around for ever. It's chock full of great period photographs and really well written with lots of historical and social commentary around the rocker era. A must if you like Rocker culture or are interested in classic Brit bikes etc.

Triumph 650 and 750 2 Valve Unit Twins Owner's Workshop Manual (Motorcycle Manuals)
by J. R. Clew

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy a workshop manual instead, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the kind of book you buy when like me you are new to the world of classic ownership and you don't know any better. Once you speak to people in the classic world they soon tell you that these Haynes manuals aren't really workshop manuals at all and you're better off with the actual Triumph workshop manual that goes with the bike.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest Americana band in the Universe!, 10 Jun 2011
This review is from: Take Me Home (Audio CD)
Words fail me when talking about the Redlands Palomino Company. I'm such a fan but don't let that put you off. Basically if you love Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, The Stones, Johnny Cash etc. then the Redlands will seem like your favourite new discovery. Homegrown roots music never sounded so damn good. Lush vocals, pedal steel to die for, a sprinkling of Stones-y guitar licks and fiddles. Pour yourself a big bourbon, lie back and enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars What about getting images from your computers?, 8 Dec 2009
Can you move images from your hard drive into a folder, then onto a memory stick and then onto the frame?

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good, unpretentious surfing read, 22 April 2009
This is a great little surfing themed book, no question. The author comes across as an immensely likeable everyday guy though he was clearly an above average surfer right from the get go. If you're not an expert surfer, like me, but you like reading surf tales that aren't too remote in tone then this is a good place to start. Tom's style is really down to earth, humble even, and his apparent lack of ego makes for an even better read. It's just a really straight forward and enjoyable tale, very well told.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Anton compile it!, 30 Nov 2007
Having just watched the excellent piece of film-making and storytelling that is "Control" the first thing I would like to get my hands on is a well-presented and expertly-compiled DVD showing all the band's filmed performances. It's a shame that this doesn't appear to be it. The aformentioned Something Else clip is undoubtedly one of the most mesmerising pieces of rock footage in history, along with The Who on Shindig, The Rolling Stones promo for Jumping Jack Flash or Bowie doing "Starman" on TOTP.

I hope someone treats their filmic legacy properly, and soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Aussies In Fine Form, 29 Oct 2003
This review is from: Hologram Of Baal (Audio CD)
I believe this was their debut album for the UK's Cooking Vinyl label after a long lay off. No matter, it is a superb example of the exceptional talents of one of the most underrated twin guitar bands on the planet. In case you don't know, The Church are a cult band who enjoyed major success in the late eighties with the album 'Starfish' and in particular, with the single 'Under The Milky Way'.
This album shows them playing to their strengths- in the past they have been described as being like "a collision between the Byrds and Pink Floyd". 'Hologram of Baal' (ignore the pretentious title) sees them at their ambient-rock/Television-like best. If you like the sonic soundscapes created by artists such as Eno, Doves, Echo and The Bunnymen etc. you will adore this album. Lyricist and principal writer Steve Kilbey displays his usual melancholic, wry, observational style with regard to vocal delivery and lyrics. The guitars are, as on every Church album, superbly dynamic and tasteful. The songwriting is strong, and the vibe is wintry and introspective. If you're already a Church fan who doesn't have it, it's far superior to the fine 'After Everything Now This Happens' , and if you're not familiar with the Church and chance across this then take note of the aforementioned reference points and judge for yourself. But you'd not be disappointed by purchasing this album. It's the kind of album that makes you realise just how much fantastic music, through no fault of its own, slips through the net and off the popular radar...
