USA Today do Disco
While author Johnny Morgan continues to blog over at http://johnnymorgansrumdo.blogspot.com where he’s giving his view of the world as seen through disco goggles, the book Disco; The Music, The Times, The Era continues to garner great reviews. A few weeks back (we’ve just discovered) America’s only national newspaper USA Today gave a big shout out for it. As they said, the book ‘captures the era through detailed storytelling and lavish vintage photos’.
We’ve also just met The Society For The Preservation & Propagation of Disco, and would urge all true disco freaks to sign up at their facebook page:
And finally, we’re about to go all Punk & Post Punk. An old friend in New York has just part of his truly unique and exhaustive collection of flyers, posters, handbills and memorabilia from 1976-1982 currently on show at the Steven Kasher Gallery until the end of this week (August 19, 2011). It’s the Rude & Reckless: Punk/Post-Punk Graphics exhibition. If you’re in Manhattan, get down there quick before it all disappears. Though much will reappear in book form, soon, we hope. http://www.stevenkasher.com
