Zakhar Prilepin's novel-in-stories, Sin, has become a literary phenomenon in Russia, where it was published in 2007. It has been hailed as the epitome of the spirit of the opening decade of the 21st century, and was called "the book of the decade" by the prestigious Super Natsbest Award jury. In the episodes of Zakharka's life, presented here in non-chronological order, we see him as a little boy, a lovelorn teenager, a hard-drinking grave-digger, a nightclub bouncer, a father, and a soldier in Chechnya. Sin offers a fascinating glimpse into the recent Russian past, as well as its present, with its unemployment, poverty, violence, and local wars - social problems that may be found in many corners of the world. Zakhar Prilepin presents these realities through the eyes of Zakharka, taking us along on the life-affirming journey of his unforgettable protagonist. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack de Golia.

Like a newly discovered old band, Coldkill is like making out with your high school girlfriend all over again. (-Lüke Haughwøut, Mechanical Harvest)nnWenn Du ein Kind der 80er bist oder Dir nichts sehnlicher wünschst als dass Du eines wärst und Dir deshalb nur eines zum Glück fehlt: das Gefühl zu wissen, wie es in den 80ern denn nun wirklich war, dann kannst Du das Gefühl zumindest akkustisch nun erleben. Rexx Arkana [FGFC820/Bruderschaft] und Eric Eldredge [Interface] neues Projekt Coldkill hat tiefe Wurzeln im New Wave Sound der 80ziger. Die komplette Instrumentierung basiert auf 1980 Modellen, wenn ein Synth nicht in den 80zigen gebaut wurde dann wird er auch nicht benutzt. Diese selbstauferlegte Beschränkung gibt Coldkill's Erstling Focus und einen organischen, klassischen Sound. Kraftwerk meets DAF - klare Strukturen und Rhytmen geben der Stimme von Arkana genug Raum um ein Feuerwerk von Melancholie und Verlangen abzubrennen. Die besten Themen sind direkt aus dem Leben gegriffen und Arkana transformiert eine Amor Fou und seine Krebs Erkrankung in Kunst. Eric Eldredge - das musikalische Mastermind in der Band kreiert eine brillante Mixtur aus dynamischen Beats und catchy Bass Lines. Dieses Rhythmus Gerüst wir von Eldredge mit Hilfe von aggressiven Lead Synths und wunderschönen Flächen in bestechende Songs verwandelt. Intensiv, tanzbar und mitreissend. Officially founded in 2015, Coldkill was effectively born in the 80s, during an era of electronic music innovation much mimicked but rarely replicated by contemporary culture. It was a time of cold wars and colder waves of synthesized harmonics making their way into homes, whilst a wild and wide-eyed youth soaked up influences that would define a unique generation. Rexx and Eric grew up here, amidst the melancholy tones of DMode and the militaristic chants of F242 and NE. Two suburban teens, wrapped in all the angst of a world awry, drawn to the distant sounds of Europe's New Wave. Arkana took up the fight early, gigging at local clubs before taking to the college radio airwaves of Syracuse University's WERW in 1987. This initial step behind the curtain led to a 10+ year professional career in college radio and club DJ promotions. Here he scored numerous number one records on College Music Journal's RPM Electronic Music Charts and worked with nearly every label of note in the goth/industrial/electronic scene, including Wax Trax!, Nettwerk, Nothing, Interscope and a large line up of audio indies long since dead and gone. Over a nearly thirty year career in the scene, Arkana has headlined Wave Gotik Treffen's Agra Halle as a DJ, hosted his own local origination alternative arts cable program (Back Alley), served as Managing Editor of the full color glossy international music magazine Interface, hosted the first ever Industrial discussion panel at CMJ's Music Marathon, featuring Wolfgang Flür and Genesis P-Orridge, and interviewed with Anderson Cooper on ABC News as an expert on goth culture in the wake of the shootings at Columbine. In 2003, Arkana stepped from the backstage to the front stage with the inception of his Bruderschaft collaborative project, which to date has united artists from such groups as VNV Nation, Covenant, Apoptygma Berzerk, Haujobb, Icon of Coil, Aesthetic Perfection, Assemblage 23, Beborn Beton, Imperative Reaction and more. In 2006, he teamed with fellow NYC DJ Dräcos von Strecker to form the harsh EBM outfit FGFC820, which has gone on to headline festivals from Moscow to Mexico City. Throughout, Arkana's love for simple 80s melodies and the forlorn melancholy of youthful angst never once subsided. It was during recording sessions for the short-lived (and memorably scantily-clad) Armor project that Arkana and Eldredge - who initially met a decade before at NYC's famous nightclub, The Bank - bonded over anachronistic sound palettes and the music of their youth. So began the infancy of Coldkill. Eldredge was no stranger to the electronic scene. His internationally-acclaimed Interface project blends different elements of various such styles into its own brand of melodic futurepop with a decidedly emotional edge. Eldredge originally founded the band in 1993 and has released a prolific amount of material in his own right since: The Artemis Complex debut album (1999), Angels in Disguise (2002), Beyond Humanity (2006), Destination Focus (2008), and Visions Of Modern Life (2009). Interface's sound has ranged from aggressive industrial (Frantic, Metalstorm) to dance floor anthems (Age of Computers, Wasted Time) to soft ballads rich in texture and ambience (The Softest Blade and Labyrinth). Together, Arkana and Eldredge provide Coldkill with an aura of melodic melancholia reminiscent of the music that shaped their formative years. Unlike many of their myriad minimal or synth wave contemporaries, Coldkill has imposed strict self-restraints on their audio arsenal, limiting themselves to the sole employment of sounds that existed during the epoch they seek to emulate. If the native instrument wasn't available then, it's outside the scope of the project. The result is a very minimal approach - bereft of modern-day multi-tracking or slick production tricks - that evokes in many listeners a sense of nostalgia unique unto itself. The band's art direction, led by well-known Washington, D.C. graphic designer Vladimir McNeally and featuring the exclusive photography of Mexican artist Leslie Monreal, similarly dispatches with the heavy handed branding agendas of many new popular acts in favor of a return to the subtle black and white metaphors of 80s-era coldwave and goth. Many have already noted the band's limited output (two self-released digital 12s via bandcamp - I'm Yours and Invisible - comprise the Coldkill catalog to date) and offered up their support. Leading scene ezine, I Die: You Die has thrice featured the band on their regular Tracks recommendations, proclaiming: good stuff somewhere in the neighbourhood of some of the excellent melancholy synthpop we were hearing in the early days of the millennium it's cool to hear Rexx finding his way to a new vocal style that's all his own we've already received two excellent maxi-singles from (the) moody synthpop project bits like this which confirm the downcast yet slinky mode Coldkill seems to be thriving in. Andi Harriman - Village Voice contributor, scene historian and author of The Postpunk Project: Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace has written: (Coldkill) pays homage to the catchy, sticky sweet sadness of songs from our new wave record collections: the familiar favorites that console us when we need a good cry. (Their music) is a testament to their placement within the ancestry of synthpop: saluting the past while securing relevancy for the future. Meanwhile, Adam at A Model of Control raves: There is something wonderfully cool and detached in what Coldkill are doing, channeling the best moments of Covenant in particular. There are the distant, controlled vocals, precise drum programming and nagging synth hooks that come together to produce track after track of brilliant, post-futurepop. I'm really quite excited to hear the album now, as there has been nothing I haven't liked about their material so far. Finally, videographer Lüke Haughwøut, of Mechanical Harvest and COMA Music Magazine, described the band's sound uniquely as: it's like rediscovering an old band you'd never heard of before, or making out with your high school girlfriend all over again. The band - recently signed to San Francisco (via Germany) indie COP International Records - is currently putting the finishing touches on their full length debut, Distance by Design, which Arkana describes as a catalog of love songs for loves lost. If you grew up blanketed in the security of early electronic sounds of the 80s - or if you just wish you did and want a sense of what it felt like to be there - Coldkill welcomes you to share in the love of our melodic melancholia.

Nightclub City Politics and Amusement in Manhattan Burton W. Peretti 'Nightclub City tells the behind-the-scenes story of Manhattan's glamorous nightlife at its peak. Packed with colorful characters, terrific original research, and an unusually accessible writing style, Nightclub City is a gritty social history of America's most glitzy fantasies.'--Debby Applegate, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Most Famous Man in America: The Biography of Henry Ward Beecher 'Meticulously researched. . . . Peretti builds on previous studies of urban nightlife and entertainment, and his contribution is to look at institutions of commercial night life not from the perspective of consumers but from that of the reformer or official trying to tax, control, prohibit, or criminalize the purveyors of pleasure.'--Journal of American History 'Peretti convincingly argues that nightclubs, at the peak of their popularity, played a small but highly significant role in redefining the relationship between America's government and its citizenry. . . . He skillfully wields illustrative quotes, cogent analysis, and an impressive body of archival evidence.'--Journal of Urban History In the Roaring Twenties, New York City nightclubs and speakeasies became hot spots where traditions were flouted and modernity was forged. With powerful patrons in Tammany Hall and a growing customer base, nightclubs flourished in spite of the efforts of civic-minded reformers and federal Prohibition enforcement. This encounter between clubs and government-generated scandals, reform crusades, and regulations helped to redefine the image and reality of urban life in the United States. Ultimately, it took the Great Depression to cool Manhattan's Jazz Age nightclubs, forcing them to adapt and relocate, but not before they left their mark on the future of American leisure. Nightclub City explores the cultural significance of New York City's nightlife between the wars, from Texas Guinan's notorious 300 Club to Billy Rose's nostalgic Diamond Horseshoe. Whether in Harlem, Midtown, or Greenwich Village, raucous nightclub activity tested early twentieth-century social boundaries. Anglo-Saxon novelty seekers, Eastern European impresarios, and African American performers crossed ethnic lines while provocative comediennes and scantily clad chorus dancers challenged and reshaped notions of femininity. These havens of liberated sexuality, as well as prostitution and illicit liquor consumption, allowed their denizens to explore their fantasies and fears of change. The reactions of cultural critics, federal investigators, and reformers such as Fiorello La Guardia exemplify the tension between leisure and order. Peretti's research delves into the symbiotic relationships among urban politicians, social reformers, and the business of vice. Illustrated with archival photographs of the clubs and the characters who frequented them, Nightclub City is a dark and dazzling study of New York's bygone nightlife. Burton W. Peretti is Professor of History at Western Connecticut State University and the author of Jazz in American Culture. 2007 304 pages 6 x 9 14 illus.

Chris Edwards has gone from running a stall on Wakefield market to masterminding a single price shopping chain with more than 300 stores across the United Kingdom. The remarkable retail rise to fame of his Poundworld business was fascinatingly featured in 2015's highly-rated BBC1 series, Pound Shop Wars - and while Chris opened up about his astonishing success story to the cameras, it was his eighty-eight-year-old mum Alice who truly became a cult figure. 'I've always been driven by the fear of ending up skint!' says Chris, who admits he once risked losing not only his own home, but also the houses of both his brother and business partner Laurie and of his own mum and dad on a single risky deal. Now, his frank and inspiring autobiography reveals the rise and rise of the businessman from hard-working one-man band with just a single van to high street tycoon with a fleet of huge lorries and more than 6,000 employees. And somehow along the way the sixty-five-year old Yorkshireman also built a thriving nightclub business with no fewer than nine venues. In 2015, Chris sold 75 per cent of Poundworld to American venture capitalists TPG for ?150million, but he is still in control and determined to drive Poundworld to new heights. This is the truly inspiring story of one man's rise to the very top.
