Re-Make/Re-Model: Becoming Roxy Music
Re-Make/Re-Model: Becoming Roxy Music

Gordon Osse, January 4, 2012

More of a history of the profound influence of several key art school professors on British culture in the 50s & 60s. Essential reading for cultural historians of the period, and fans of Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno. Bracewell has written 5 books on Roxy I believe, and he knows his subject thoroughly, to say the least. And his writing is excellent on pop culture.

Also instructive on the differences between British and American Pop Art.

One of my favorite books on music period.

Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls by Matt Ruff
Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls

Gordon Osse, January 25, 2010

I think we're all houses with many residents, it's just a matter of degree. This insight has helped me considerably in my dealings with others.

This is a heartbreaking look at what it means to be human in the 21st century, when you can't shut the windows and doors, and the storm never lets up.

Easily Ruff's best book, and the only book I've read that compares in a way is Phil Dick's "Clans of the Alphane Moon."
