The Man Who Stole Rock ‘n’ Roll: ‘It’s rock ‘n’ roll plagiarism… only this time the songs are stolen from the future’

by Bob Lawton

THE MAN WHO STOLE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL

It’s rock ‘n’ roll plagiarism … but this time the songs are stolen from future.

1963

Post war Britain is on the brink of the Swinging Sixties and the World is on the threshold of Beatlemania. Birmingham’s Frankie Atom & The Bombastics are about to be propelled from dance hall heroes to teenage idols…and a string of hit records.

One snowy night, driving the band’s Volkswagen home alone from a gig, guitarist Barry Harper is forced to take shelter from the blizzard in a lonely lay-by.

Impatiently switching between radio stations to find rock ‘n’ roll music for company, Barry is suddenly drawn down some sort of time travel warp…

1983

…the Volkswagen now belongs to post-punk rockers The Robbie Rochester Band. Robbie befriends a desperately bewildered and terrified Barry and vows to help him find a way home.

But how?

2013

Just what surprises await Frankie and his old band mates when they reform for a concert at a very special venue? What wretched decision did Barry make that reverberated down the years wrecking careers and changing lives forever? Who knew and why was nothing said?

Jack in the Green

In this book you will find 180 photos of the fantastic Hastings Jack-in-the-Green Festival which is an annual event taking place on the May Day bank holiday. Enjoy the colourful procession, the Morris dancing and the people participating in it.

This event is becoming more and more popular and as a reviewer of my Hastings book wrote:

“What I enjoyed most of all was all the outstanding shots taken at festivals including “Jack in the Green”, “Bike Run” , “Old Town Carnival Week” , and “Pirate Day” to name a few as people present certainly get into the spirit of the occasion. Bottom line, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I highly recommend and “I. Have. Got. To Get. To. Hastings!” (Especially during a festival!)”

The best 40 photos of this book are available as strictly limited edition prints on my website.

Have fun looking through the photos and come and join the Hastings Jack-in-the-Green Festival next year.

Jack in the Green

The Hastings Jack-in-the-Green festival was revived by local group Mad Jacks Morris Dancers in 1983 and is now one of the biggest annual gatherings of Morris Dancers in the country. The Jack is “released” every year and is central to the festival. The main procession of the Jack takes place on the May Bank Holiday Monday through the streets of Hastings Old Town, starting from the Fisherman’s Museum. The Jack is accompanied by Mad Jacks Morris, the Green Bogies, dancers, giants, musicians and various others. The procession ends on the West Hill where Jack is “slain” to “release the spirit of summer”.

A Jack in the Green (also Jack in the green, Jack-in-the-green, Jack i’ the Green, Jack o’ the Green, etc.) is a participant in traditional English May Day parades and other May celebrations, who wears a large, foliage-covered, garland-like framework, usually pyramidal or conical in shape, which covers his body from head to foot. The name is also applied to the garland itself.

In the 16th and 17th centuries in England, people would make garlands of flowers and leaves for the May Day celebration. After becoming a source of competition between Works Guilds, these garlands became increasingly elaborate, to the extent that it covered the entire man. This became known as Jack in the Green. For some reason the figure became particularly associated with chimney sweeps.

By the turn of the 20th century the custom had started to wane as a result of the Victorian disapproval of bawdy and anarchic behaviour. The Lord and Lady of the May, with their practical jokes, were replaced by a pretty May Queen, while the noisy, drunken Jack in the Green vanished altogether from the parades.

Similar characters to the English Jack in the Green were known in parts of Europe and Russia, and may be still. Some were involved in mock sacrifice, where the leafy framework was thrown or ducked into a pond or river (sometimes with the person still inside it). These festivities were variously associated with Easter Monday, St George’s Day (23 April), May Day, and Whitsuntide. Occasionally the disguise was straw rather than leaves, a link with the straw bears of German Carnival (and the sole English example, the Whittlesea Straw Bear), suggesting these particular figures personified winter rather than spring or summer.



Sweet Untasted: A Record of Musical Witness

by Fraser Sunderland

Sweet Untasted: A Record of Musical Witness is a memoir by Canadian author Fraser Sunderland. It tells the story of a group of high school pals who come together out of a common love for playing loud, aggressive music. Yet even as their bonds form and their abilities mature, timeless forces beyond their control throw the band into a life-altering crisis that would challenge even the strongest spirit.

Within the text of this multi-media e-book edition are many hyperlinks that relate to the details within the story of Sweet Untasted: A Record of Musical Witness. As long as your device is internet-capable, feel free to click on those hyperlinks to enjoy a deeper understanding of the influences and the results discussed within the story.

In the early 1990’s, playing the drums was my noisy but private addiction. It soon became a group effort as I found myself in a band composed of some of the coolest kids from my high school’s art-program. These were guys that I looked up to and I was a little stunned to find myself playing loud music with them in the basement on Friday nights.

They introduced me to the wild, passionate and long-haired culture that is Heavy Metal. As we grew more confident and capable as a band, so too did I become more comfortable with my place among them. Each passing gig left us feeling more optimistic about our musical future and left me feeling empowered – capable of anything.

That all changed. We performed better than ever at the Montreal show, with unity and indications of maturing skill. But the sudden transition thrust upon us the following evening wiped away our elation and empowerment in a single, silent moment.

Thrones & Dominions (Book 2): The Second

by Carlos J. King

Over twenty years have passed since Walter King’s legendary reign over New York’s underworld. Throughout those years he has relocated his family to Jupiter Island, Florida, and reinvented himself to be a legitimate businessman and model citizen. Now father to three adult sons, and one teenage daughter, the second half of Walter’s life has been one blessed with peace and prosperity.

With Walter’s retirement quickly approaching, a struggle for power between his two eldest sons ensues. Both of whom are hoping to be named their father’s successor and seize the reigns of the family business. And while one son has a genuine interest in furthering the company, the other has his ambition set solely on capturing the fear and reverence his father once commanded at the height of his notorious rule.

As Walter attempts to mediate growing tensions within his family, and salvage the serenity he’s grown accustomed to over the past two decades, an enemy from his past suddenly emerges to issue a grim challenge.
