From rank outsiders to pop stardom a decade later, The Damned blazed an anarchic trail through punk rock to achieve massive chart success. A beacon for the Sex Pistols and The Clash to follow, they flung down the musical gauntlet in 1976 with Britain’s first punk single ‘New Rose’. Smashing It Up: A Decade of Chaos with The Damned is their definitive biography, drawing on new, in-depth research and interviews with associates and band members – including founders Brian James, Chris Millar (Rat Scabies), Raymond Burns (Captain Sensible) and David Lett (David Vanian). Conflict was rife: managers and labels came and went; bridges were burnt; opportunities squandered; and Kieron Tyler reveals how – and why – the wayward, wild and wilful Damned are the punk band that survived, and why they truly led the British Punk movement and outshone their contemporaries.

From their 1974 debut at New York's premier punk dive, through the classic albums and blistering live sets, The Ramones cut an unforgettable swathe through two decades of pop, setting the scene for punk and hardcore with honed-down songs and ferocious 20 minute sets, but always putting the music first. Seen through the eyes of the people who were there at the time, including musicians, managers, producers, publicists and New York punk scenesters, this book shows the heroic Ramones staying faithful to their own unique musical vision right to the bitter end. This updated edition now climaxes with the sad death of guitarist Johnny Ramone.

From their earliest days playing in school halls and social clubs, to becoming one of the biggest and most-hyped bands of a decade, The Sex Pistols story is one of opportunity and outrage. Under the management of Malcolm McLaren, Jonny Rotten, Paul Cook, Steve Jones, Glen Matlock, and later Sid Vicious, spear-headed the punk movement, mocking and shunning the British establishment and music industry whilst simultaneously playing them at their own game. The Pistols received a contract with EMI that lasted little more than a month, before being signed and sacked by A&M in seven days. The band's only album Never Mind The Bollocks, along with the Jubilee single God Save The Queen both hit number one despite being banned from broadcast by the BBC. Their foul-mouthed appearance with Bill Grundy on national television is now regarded as a defining moment in popular culture.In little over three years, the Sex Pistols transformed the meaning of pop music forever. Their career displayed the power of pure industry hype in an unprecedented way, whilst paradoxically paving the way for a surge of independent bands and records that would side-step the established record industry in favour of greater freedoms of expression. As a result, the Sex Pistols are as significant today as they were in the late-1970s.In this enthralling account, Fred and Judy Vermorel have compiled interviews, diaries, first-hand accounts and press to provide an insider's view on the Sex Pistols phenomenon. You'll discover what was said in those frantic meetings, as well as finding out the truth behind the stories of violence and bad behaviour.

Also included is an integrated Spotify playlist containing the band’s greatest performances.

All paint a picture of a fiercely loyal group of musicians, their arguments and drunken spats, their love affairs, the drugs, the hirings and the firings, the marriages and deaths… but, above all, the music.

Franz Kafka S The Trial

"The low critical opinion of dramatic adaptations of prose works makes clear that the dramatic text is widely seen as unable to compete with the narrative text that it adapts. Privileging the text of a play as the site of meaning is inadequate, however, given the social nature of theatre; rather, the socio-historical context of a production must be investigated to flesh out the meaning of the text in dramatic production. In this study, four theatrical adaptations of Franz Kafka's novel The Trial (1925) from different decades and countries, and in three different languages, illustrate a history not only of Kafka reception, but also of society, politics and theatrical practice in western Europe and Canada. The diversity of these visions of Kafka's work pleads for the acceptance of dramatic adaptation as a creative form of interpretation, rather than as an ill-advised misappropriation, of its source."
