  • Bagge Tapani & Eklund Jari - Teddy, Aikka ja Alpo – Alpo Hakalan musiikki ja elämä 1957–2021 (Kirjat)


    Ilmestyy 30.3.

    Ujon pojan nousu suomalaisen rockmaailman huipulle.

    Parikymppinen Alpo “Teddy” Hakala niitti 70-luvun lopulla huikeaa suosiota Suomen ykkösbändi Teddy & The Tigersin kanssa. Mitä sitten tapahtui? Entä sitä ennen?

    Alpo oli hiljainen putkimiehen poika Keravalta, joka nousi rocktähteyteen Teddy & The Tigersin johtohahmona. Tigersin jälkeen hänestä tuli Aikka ja uudesta bändistä Bad Sign. Rockabilly vaihtui rhythm’n’bluesiin mutta keikkoja riitti. Väliin Alpo kokeili muita töitä, raittiutta ja perhe-elämää.

    Alpo kertoo oman tarinansa, jota perhe, ystävät, bändikaverit, roudarit sekä keikkamyyjät täydentävät. Myös managerit, fanit ja levytuottajat saavat sanansijan.

    Tapani Bagge on pitkän linjan kirjailija, joka tunnetaan etenkin dekkareista ja historiallisista romaaneista. Jari Eklund on valokuvataiteilija, joka on kirjoittanut kirjat Syntyneet rokkaamaan ja Tiger Twist. Yhdessä he ovat tehneet kirjan Prosenttimies – Bikerin tarina. Kumpikin on kotoisin Keravalta.

  • Peter Guralnick, Colin Escott - The Birth of Rock ’n’ Roll: The Illustrated Story of Sun Records and the 70 Recordings That Changed the World (Kirjat)


    A fascinating look at the history of Sun Records, the label that started Rock n’ Roll, told through 70 of its iconic recordings.

    In Memphis, Tennessee, in the 1950s, there was hard-edged blues playing on Beale Street, and hillbilly boogie on the outskirts of town. But at Sam Phillips’ Sun Records studio on Union Avenue, there was something different going on – a whole lotta shakin’, rockin’, and rollin’.

    This is where rock ’n’ roll was born.

    Sun Records: the company that launched Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Carl Perkins. The label that brought the world, “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Breathless,” “I Walk the Line,” “Mystery Train,” “Good Rockin’ Tonight.”

    The Birth of Rock ’n’ Roll: 70 Years of Sun Records is the official history of this legendary label, and looks at its story in a unique way: through the lens of 70 of its most iconic recordings. From the early days with primal blues artists like Howlin’ Wolf and B.B. King to long nights in the studio with Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, you will see how the label was shaped and how it redefined American music. Accompanying the recordings is the label’s origin story and a look at the mission of the label today, as well as “Sun Spot” sidebars—a fascinating dive into subjects such as how the iconic logo was created, the legendary Million Dollar Quartet sessions, and how the song “Harper Valley, PTA” funded the purchase of the label.

    Written by two of the most acclaimed music writers of our time, Peter Guralnick and Colin Escott, and featuring hundreds of rare images from the Sun archives as well as a foreword by music legend Jerry Lee Lewis, this is a one-of-a-kind book for anyone who wants to know where it all started.

  • Brackenridge Craig - Doin’ My Own Thing – Alan Wilson Autobiography (Kirjat)


    Doin’ My Own Thing is the autobiography of Alan Wilson and covers everything from childhood, school days, playing in bands, touring overseas, producing records, writing songs and owning a recording studio and record label. This book also covers the fascinating period when the first Psychobillies broke away from the Rockabilly scene to create their own subculture.

    “If you are expecting a straight-up rock biography here then think again. The bust-ups, bad behavior and (occasionally eye-watering) backstage antics are all present but there is also so much more. The early days stories are alive with detail and pitched somewhere between the movie Kes, Play For Today and a particularly violent episode of Grange Hill. Alan also takes a trip through the history of British Rock ‘n’ Roll whether it is experiencing the fine lines between the cults of Ted, Rockabilly and Psychobilly or working alongside many of his childhood heroes. Stories of many big names appear throughout but never in a boastful manner as you get the impression that Alan soaks up each experience with vivid powers of recall and uses these moments to inform his creative endeavors. While many books from musicians take you on a standard trip from obscurity to burn-out with possible salvation along the way, Alan deviates from this path and takes a good few page-turning detours that are bemusing but wildly entertaining. The career of The Sharks, Alan’s production work and the history of the Western Star Recording Company are only part of the story here. This is a meaty portion of non-fiction indeed. Dig in!”

  • Janne Örnberg (sekä Kati Järvi ja Jori Venemies) - Emman perilliset – suomalaisen rautalankabeatin vuosikymmenet (Kirja) (Kirjat)


    Rautalankamusiikki edustaa monelle vain yli puolen vuosisadan takaista nostalgiaa. Harva musiikinlaji on kuitenkaan yhtä ajaton – ja yhtä suomalainen – kuin Emma-iskelmän vaikutuksesta syntynyt, ja sittemmin monin tavoin jalostunut rautalankabeat.
    Kirja on kirjoitettu syvällä pieteetillä ja suurella sydämellä. Teos osoittaa, että rautalankabeat on koko historiansa ajan voinut hyvin, ja on elinvoimaista musiikkia edelleenkin.

  • Make Tapio Memorabilia - Rockin ’ Bones KIRJA + Bonus CD (Kirjat)


    Marko Tapion hurmioitunut rock and roll -vuodatus sotki systeemini.
    Kuinka kukaan voi kirjoittaa rockabillystä ja rhythm & bluesista näin
    sekopäisiä sanaryöppyjä? Ensishokin jälkeen ymmärsin, että kiihkon
    vallassa runoileva nuorimies oli oikeilla jäljillä.” – Pekka Laine
    (The Fanatic IV, Hip Shooters, YLE)

    Make Tapion tekstit olivat kuin Gene Vincentin ensimmäiset
    levytykset: villejä ja vaarallisia, ja varsinkin Suomen oloissa rajoja
    rikkkovia. Maken sanan säilä viilsi hurmokselllisesti kuin Cliff
    Gallupin kitarasoolo.” – Masu Ijas (Pink Thunderbird)

    Marko ”Make” Tapio (1967 – 1991) oli oululainen rock and roll -friikki ja tuottelias kirjoittaja. Maken tekstejä julkaistiin satoja sivuja
    sellaisissa ”alan” pienlehdissä kuin Pink Thunderbird, Too Much Noise ja Blues News.

    Maken muistolle omistettu Rockin’ Bones -kirja kokoaa yhteen näistä jutuista parhaat ja kaivatuimmat – sekä yli 70 sivua ennenjulkaisematonta materiaalia! Kirjassa Maken verbaalisesta ilotulituksesta pääsevät osalliseksi muun muassa Link Wray, Tall Boys, The Cramps, Larry Williams, Don & Dewey, Legendary Stardust Cowboy, Thurston Harris, Larry Donn ja monet muut rock’n’rollin, rockabillyn ja r&b:n unohdetut kulttisankarit.

  • Hawkins Screamin' Jay - I Put a Spell on You: The Bizarre Life of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (Kirjat)



    Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was larger than life and louder than sin. The story of his life is a wild ride through nightclubs and bedrooms throughout the world. Who cares what the truth is when the story he tells is so much better.

    In the annals of rock ‘n’ roll there have been a lot of strange characters, but there probably hasn’t been anyone as bizarre as Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and this is his story. Known mostly for a single record, I Put A Spell On You, and emerging from a coffin to perform on stage, Screamin’ Jay was a whirlwind performer, lusty singer, prolific songwriter and a man who was total stranger to the truth.Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was larger than life as he emerged from a coffin with a skull on stick singing I Put A Spell On You. With one song, Screamin’ Jay, who studied piano and sang opera, became the embodiment of the sexually insatiable, voodoo empowered, black man feared by 1950’s America. Caught between myth and a nearly unbelievable truth, which story is better? I Put A Spell On You brings together hundreds of interviews with Screamin’ Jay, his family, and bandmates to weave a new tale of the life of this seminal rock and roll pioneer.Screamin’ Jay Hawkins released ”I Put a Spell On You” in 1956. The song, that never made it to the charts when it was released, would eventually be covered several hundred times by the likes of Nina Simone, Credence Clearwater Revival, and Marilyn Manson; Jeff Beck and Joss Stone’s version even received a Grammy nomination in 2010. It was selected as one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and was added to Rolling Stones’ list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Hawkins’ music and outlandish onstage persona inspired generations of musicians after him. And yet, little is known of the man and little can be taken at face value. Hawkins interpreted his past with a poetic license to kill, a magical amalgam of his own making—creating disparate stories alternatively terrible or sympathetic at his will. I Put A Spell On You brings together hundreds of interviews with Hawkins, his family, bandmates, and contemporaries. For those needing a towpath of truth, footnotes abound to tether you through. Here is Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s story—mean, heartbreaking, and magic.
