JONES, GRAHAM ~ LAST SHOP STANDING: A JURNEY THROUGH AN INDUSTRY IN TURMOIL
PROPER ~ 978-0-9561-2120-2 ~ 2009 ~ English

Music Industry / History & Criticism

A fascinating account of the collapsing music retail business in the UK, written by a man who worked in the field for decades. Jones describes the music business in general and the UK retail music scene in particular based on his personal experience, but also analyzes the reasons that brought both the industry and the retail to its knees. Full of humor and anecdotes, the book nevertheless presents a serious viewpoint and touches upon the core problems of the music industry over the years, presenting an unusual personal angle of dozens of shop owners around the UK. The fact that from about 1000 independent record shops existing in the UK in 2003 the number went down to less than a 100 in 2008 speaks for itself, and the author tries to explain what and why this happened. As someone who worked in the industry even longer than the author, this book is in many respects a mirror of my own experiences. Anybody concerned with the state of the music industry and music scene in general should find this book educational and entertaining.

HEADPRESS ~ 1-900486-41-5 ~ 2005 ~ English

Rock / History & Criticism

A collection of essays and articles about the obscure side of Rock , presenting in-depth biographies of several "underground" heroes, as well as insights into other aspects of Rock music. Mostly well written, sometimes with an attitude (which makes fun reading, but can be infuriating) and unearthing a lot of lesser know facts and obscure bands. All together quite informative and worth reading.
