Avant Rock

release date: Dec 14, 2015
Avant Rock
In Avant Rock,, music writer Bill Martin explores how avant-garde rock emerged from the social and political upheaval of the sixties. He covers the music from its early stages, revealing its influences outside of rock, from musicians such as John Cage and Cecil Taylor, to those more closely related to rock like James Brown and Parliament/ Funkadelic. Martin follows the development of avant rock through the sixties, when it was accepted into the mainstream, with bands like the later Beatles, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, The Velvet Underground, King Crimson, and Brian Eno. His narration takes us into the present, with an analysis of contemporary artists who continue to innovate and push the boundaries of rock, such as Stereolab, Mouse on Mars, Sonic Youth, and Jim O''Rourke. Martin critiques the work of all important avant rock bands and individual artists, from the well-known to the more obscure, and provides an annotated discography

Music of Yes

release date: Dec 14, 2015
Music of Yes
Unlike most books on rock music, Music of Yes does not focus on personalities, but instead on musical structures, lyrical vision, and cultural and historical context. Bill Martin situates one of the most creative groups from the progressive rock period, Yes, within the utopian ideals of the sixties and the experimental trend in rock music initiated by the Beatles and taken up by groups such as King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, and others. Working against the seemingly entrenched cynicism and "blues orthodoxy" among rock music critics, Martin demonstrates the power of Yes''s romantic, utopian, "Blakean," ecological, multicultural, and feminist perspective, showing how this vision is developed through extended musical works. "I think this book will stand out as the most definitive study of Yes, and anyway, how could I not like a book that compares my ability to that of John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix?" —Chris Squire Co-founder of Yes "Yes fans will flock to this paean to the world of 1960s ''art rock''. . . Martin''s points about the artistic aspirations of ''60s and ''70s ''progressive'' music are thought-provoking." —Booklist

Ethical Marxism

release date: Dec 01, 2013
Ethical Marxism
This book aims to reinvigorate the Marxist project and the role it might play in illuminating the way beyond capitalism. Though political economy and scientific investigation are needed for pure Marxism, Martin’s argument is that the extent to which these elements are needed cannot be determined within the conversations of political economy and other investigations into causal mechanisms. What has not been done, and what this book does, is to argue for the possibility of a rethought Marxism that takes ethics as its core, displacing political economy and "scientific" investigation.

From Creation to Chaos!

release date: Jan 01, 2011
From Creation to Chaos!
This is a shocking and provocative thesis about the downfall of America and its hapless masses. It is a message so foreboding it even silences Bill O''Reilly and Glenn Beck. It confronts and answers such demanding questions as: Who Are You? Where Will You Spend Eternity? Why Our Rush To Communism? Why The Fury of The Intellectual elitists? Why The Rush to Pagan Academia? What Is The Agenda Of The World''s Great Religions? Will America Turn On The Jews? How Can You Survive This Disaster?This thesis represents seven years of research and travel to 50 troubled nations. It draws a corollary between the onslaught of failing cultures and their inability to rescue themselves from starvation, financial chaos, and religious and political bondage. However, there is hope for but a remnant, those who seek and treasure wisdom, truth and hope. Something that has long been lost to the world''s ignorant and rebellious. Which will you choose?Author of, "Life Is A Challenge, Not A Pass" and "Real Success Without College."
