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.

Martin charts topographic oceans, courts crimson kings, does some brain salad surgery, and generally rocks out in 7/8 time." —Jim DeRogatis Sun-Times music critic

Real Success Without College

release date: Feb 01, 2010
Real Success Without College
This thesis expressly addresses the plight of young American males ages 15 to 25. The current (2009) crisis is their total lack of education, lack of basic skills, employability, ambition, manners and morality. This is all enforced by their 20 - 27% unemployment numbers and the fact that employers would rather hire women than them by a 15% margin. It is a hard hitting expose of the death of our nation and those who caused it. It begins with a study of man''s inherent ignorance and penchant for self destruction. It addresses the "cause and effect'' when deeply flawed leaders and politicians chose to enrich themselves by raiding the public treasury. But the most damning message of all is the onslaught of wickedness imposed on our nation by the advent of the rebellious "Hippie Generations"! America will never, ever recover from this curse. But it is a serious and encouraging message to our young men, 15 to 25, that even after surviving 12 years of the ravages of Public Education; they can change and even prosper without a college education!
