Comprised of singer David Johansen, guitarists Johnny Thunders and Sylvain Sylvain, drummer Jerry Nolan, and bassist Arthur 'Killer' Kane, the Dolls are the acknowledged influence of bands as diverse as Blondie, the Ramones, Motley Crue, Guns N Roses, Morrissey, the Smiths, and the Sex Pistols. Legendary photographer Bob Gruen has compiled the first photography collection devoted to the New York Dolls and their iconic and unprecedented style. Featuring over two hundred unforgettable images New York Dolls: Photographs by Bob Gruen celebrates one of the most important bands in music history. / Bob Gruen is one of the most well-known rock-and-roll photographers of all time. For almost forty years his images have appeared worldwide in every form of print from postcards to posters to T-shirts and postage stamps. He is the author of John Lennon: The New York Years. He lives in New York City." - Publisher.

Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century, Marcus, Greil
12 Marcus, Greil
Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century
Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press 1989 0674535804 / 9780674535800 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
496 pp., [4] pp. of plates: ill. (some col.), biblio., index; 24 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Spine slightly rolled at the crown, small stain/paste-down endpaper. First Edition, First Printing. Dust jacket, with moderate edgewear/worn at extremities, protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Greil Marcus, author of Mystery Train, widely acclaimed as the best book ever written about America as seen through its music, began work on this new book out of a fascination with the Sex Pistols: that scandalous antimusical group, invented in London in 1975 and dead within two years, which sparked the emergence of the culture called punk. "I am an antichrist!" shouted singer Johnny Rotten-where in the world of pop music did that come from? Looking for an answer, with a high sense of the drama of the journey, Marcus takes us down the dark paths of counterhistory, a route of blasphemy, adventure, and surprise. This is no mere search for cultural antecedents. Instead, what Marcus so brilliantly shows is that various kinds of angry, absolute demands--demands on society, art, and all the governing structures of everyday life--seem to be coded in phrases, images, and actions passed on invisibly, but inevitably, by people quite unaware of each other. Marcus lets us hear strange yet familiar voices: of such heretics as the Brethren of the Free Spirit in medieval Europe and the Ranters in seventeenth-century England; the dadaists in Zurich in 1916 and Berlin in 1918, wearing death masks, chanting glossolalia; one Michel Mourre, who in 1950 took over Easter Mass at Notre-Dame to proclaim the death of God; the Lettrist International and the Situationist International, small groups of Paris--based artists and writers surrounding Guy Debord, who produced blank-screen films, prophetic graffiti, and perhaps the most provocative social criticism of the 1950s and '60s; the rioting students and workers of May '68, scrawling cryptic slogans on city walls and bringing France to a halt; the Sex Pistols in London, recording the savage 'Anarchy in the U.K.' and 'God Save the Queen.' Although the Sex Pistols shape the beginning and the end of the story, Lipstick Traces is not a book about music; it is about a common voice, discovered and transmitted in many forms. Working from scores of previously unexamined and untranslated essays, manifestos, and filmscripts, from old photographs, dada sound poetry, punk songs, collages, and classic texts from Marx to Henri Lefebvre, Marcus takes us deep behind the acknowledged events of our era, into a hidden tradition of moments that would seem imaginary except for the fact that they are real: a tradition of shared utopias, solitary refusals, impossible demands, and unexplained disappearances. Written with grace and force, humor and an insistent sense of tragedy and danger, Lipstick Traces tells a story as disruptive and compelling as the century itself. / Greil Marcus writes for many publications, including Esquire, Interview, and The Threepenny Review. He is the author of Lipstick Traces, The Dustbin of History (both by Harvard), and Invisible Republic." - Publisher.

Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967
Chicago and New Haven, CT Museum of Contemporary Art; Yale University Press 2007 0300134266 / 9780300134261 1st Hardcover Fine Exhibition Catalogue Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Pictorial boards, 287 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes, index; 33 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "The dynamic relationship between rock music and visual art crosses continents, generations, and cultures. Beginning with Andy Warhol's involvement with The Velvet Underground in 1967, artists have maintained a strong connection to rock. Artists such as Slater Bradley, Mike Kelley, and Raymond Pettibon have created album covers and music videos for rock bands, while rock musicians such as Bryan Ferry, John Lennon, and Peter Townsend have emerged from art schools, and punk and new wave bands such as Talking Heads and Sonic Youth have shared the same social and artistic milieu as artists including Robert Longo and Richard Prince. Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967 looks at the intimate and inspired relationship between the visual arts and rock-and-roll culture, charting their intersection through works of art, album covers, music videos, and other materials. Organized regionally by cultural centers including London, New York, Los Angeles, and Cologne, the essays examine rock and roll’s style, celebrity, and identity politics in art; the experience, energy, and sense of devotion rock music inspires; and the dual role that many individuals play in both the sonic and visual realms. Presenting work that defies a more literal interpretation of the theme and instead suggests the style, energy, and attitude that has come to be associated with rock and roll, this fascinating volume is essential for admirers of contemporary art and culture. / Dominic Molon is the Pamela Alper Associate Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. He is coauthor of Wolfgang Tillmans. Other contributors: Diedrich Diederichsen, Anthony Elms, Dan Graham, Richard Hell, Mike Kelley, Bob Nickas, Simon Reynolds, and Jan Tumlir." - Publisher.
