Bedsit Disco Queen - Format B (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 28 ene 2014
Descripción del producto
The Alan Bennett of pop memoirists. I loved her book so much I wanted to form a band, too. Preferably with Thorn (Caitlin Moran, bestselling author of How to be a Woman)
As distinctive and lovely as its author's singing voice, Bedsit Disco Queen isn't just a wry and wise memoir of a unique career: it acts as a kind of eulogy for a forgotten era of British pop (Alexis Petridis)
As a witty and wise chronicle of a life spent dipping in and out of the limelight, this is second to none (Fiona Sturges Independent on Sunday)
Beautifully written, dryly funny and searingly honest (Sunday Times)
Reseña del editor
I was only sixteen when I bought an electric guitar and joined a band. A year later, I formed an all-girl band called the Marine Girls and played gigs, and signed to an indie label, and started releasing records.
Then, for eighteen years, between 1982 and 2000, I was one half of the group Everything But the Girl. In that time, we released nine albums and sold nine million records. We went on countless tours, had hit singles and flop singles, were reviewed and interviewed to within an inch of our lives. I've been in the charts, out of them, back in. I've seen myself described as an indie darling, a middle-of-the-road nobody and a disco diva. I haven't always fitted in, you see, and that's made me face up to the realities of a pop career - there are thrills and wonders to be experienced, yes, but also moments of doubt, mistakes, violent lifestyle changes from luxury to squalor and back again, sometimes within minutes.Ver Descripción del producto

So it was with great anticipation that i picked up this book that I just finished. I LOVED it! I'm so completely uncool that I had no idea of this trend where punk style bands segued into cool jazzy type sound. Who knew? Well apparently all my cool DJ friends did. And to think of her as a teenager ‘doing her thing’ while I, a year or two older, thought of Punk as raunchy no rhythm noise. Yes, I know better now. My only complaint is not finding out the inspiration behind all of the songs from those early albums. But the tidbits in there were priceless to me. For me EBTG was the most important musical influence throughout my 20's and 30's. I still play those records in my 50’s as much as anything else I play. Thank you Tracey for sharing your story, so grateful you wrote this. For me it was mesmerizing and I didn't want it to end.
A funny side note. Around the turn of the century I was in the category of people who thought there was nothing great in new music until one day, in a restaurant dripping with cool, I heard a house remix of a Sade song that stopped me in my tracks and changed my life forever. Wouldn't you know that it was the Lazy Dog (Ben Watt) remix of Sade's By Your Side that started my love affair with house music and brought dance back into my life. It was a beautiful full circle kind of thing.
