Beastie Boys book by Mike D( Book )

12 editions published in 2018 in 3 languages and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam "ADROCK" Horovitz and Michael "Mike D" Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the debut album that became the first hip hop record ever to hit #1, Licensed to Ill--and the album's messy fallout as the band broke with Def Jam; their move to Los Angeles and rebirth with the genre-defying masterpiece Paul's Boutique; their evolution as musicians and social activists over the course of the classic albums Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty and the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits conceived by the late Adam "MCA" Yauch; and more. For more than thirty years, this band has had an inescapable and indelible influence on popular culture. With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys' New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises

In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. He became notorious for his graffiti art under the moniker Samo in the late 1970s on the Lower East Side scene, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for $200, and became best friends with Andy Warhol. Appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public, Basquiat was launched into international stardom. However, soon his cult status began to override the art that had made him famous in the first place

No no : a dockumentary( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 136 years of baseball history, only 276 no-hitters have been recorded. Dock is the only pitcher to ever claim he accomplished his while high on LSD. During his 12 years in the major leagues, Dock lived the expression "Black is Beautiful!" He wore curlers on the field. He stepped out of his Cadillac wearing the widest bell bottoms and the broadest collars. When he put on his uniform, he was one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 1970s. Dock was often at the forefront of controversy and has been called the "Muhammad Ali of Baseball." He was an outspoken leader of a new wave of civil rights in sports, when black athletes were no longer content to accept second-class treatment or keep their mouths shut about indignities. For this, the press labeled him a militant. After Dock retired from baseball, he was as outspoken about his addictions to alcohol and amphetamines (aka "greenies") as he had been about racial prejudice during his career. He spent his last decades using that blunt honesty as a counselor helping other addicts, until his death from liver disease in 2008" -- www.nonodockumentary.com

Licensed to ill by Beastie Boys( Recording )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in Undetermined and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit ihrem Erstling <<Licensed To Ill>> waren die Beastie Boys nicht nur die erste erfolgreiche weisse Rap-Gruppierung - sie landeten gleich auch das erste Nummer-1-Album in der Geschichte des HipHop. -- Das New Yorker Trio kam ursprünglich aus der Punk-Szene, war aber von Anfang an geprägt von der Liebe zum schwarzen Funk von Sly and The Family Stone und The Meters. Produzent Rick Rubin holte die Beasties 1985 zum eben gegründeten Label <<Def Jam>>, wo bereits LL Cool J und bald auch Public Enemy unter Vertrag standen. -- Obwohl Run-DMC mit <<Walk This Way>> bereits eine Bresche geschlagen hatten, sorgte die Mischung aus Heavy Metal und Rap auf <<Licensed To Ill>> für Kontroversen. Erst recht in Verbindung mit den frechen Texten, deren Humor nicht überall richtig verstanden wurde! -- Trotzdem: <<Fight For Your Right>> wurde zur ultimativen Party-Hymne, <<No Sleep Till Brooklyn>> zum Motto einer Generation die den Begriff <<Crossover>> erst noch erfinden musste. Drei Jahre später, nach der Trennung von Rubin, bewiesen die Beasties mit ihrem zweiten Album <<Paul's Boutique>>, dass sie keine Eintagsfliegen waren.

A thousand Laurie Lees : the centenary celebration of a man and a valley by Adam Horovitz( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a writer he was the disengaged onlooker who understood how his presence altered a place or a situation.' This is how The Independent described Laurie Lee in the 1997 obituary of the much-loved author. In A Thousand Laurie Lees, another poet, Adam Horovitz, explores not only how the Slad Valley informed the man and his writing but also how the valley itself was affected by its association with such an international figure; and how it has retained its particular identity since its description in Cider with Rosie. Shortly after Laurie Lee's death in 1997, a handful of locals dressed up as
