Artist: WIRED UP
Title: Wired Up! Glam, Proto Punk, and Bubblegum: European Picture Sleeves 1970 - 1976
Format: Hardcover Book
Label: Wired Up Media
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"Wired Up! catalogs for the first time, some of the best and most sought after junkshop glam, bubblegum and proto-punk European 45 sleeves from 1970-1976. The book attempts to document this highly influential but seldom discussed movement in rock n roll through both the vibrantly colored and outrageously designed record sleeves as well as first hand accounts with some of the groups that were there, such as Jesse Hector of the Hammersmith Gorilas, Gordon Nicol of Iron Virgin, and Alan Gordon of Hector. The research for this book has taken several years of digging through record bins and scouring online auction sites for these hard to find records as well as collaborating with several prominent European collectors such as Phil King, Bass player for the Jesus and Mary Chain and the driving force behind the groundbreaking "Glitterbest" compilation among others, and Robin Wills, guitarist of the UK powerpop band the Barracudas and author of the Purepop blog, one of the longest running music blogs dedicated to junkshop glam and obscure pop 45s. Wired Up! is a truly labor of love, compiled and self published by Mary Blount and Jeremy Thompson, both avid record collectors and designers living in New York." -Wired Up.
