Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Remember When All You Wanted Was Your MTV? The perfect gift for the music fan or child of the eighties in your life. Named One of the Best Books of 2011 by NPR – Spin - USA Today – CNBC - Pitchfork - The Onion - The Atlantic - The Huffington Post – VEVO - The Boston Globe - The San Francisco Chronicle Remember the first time you saw Michael Jackson dance with zombies in "Thriller"? Diamond Dave karate kick with Van Halen in "Jump"? Tawny Kitaen turning cartwheels on a Jaguar to Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again"? The Beastie Boys spray beer in "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)"? Axl Rose step off the bus in "Welcome to the Jungle"? It was a pretty radical idea-a channel for teenagers, showing nothing but music videos. It was such a radical idea that almost no one thought it would actually succeed, much less become a force in the worlds of music, television, film, fashion, sports, and even politics. But it did work. MTV became more than anyone had ever imagined. I Want My MTV tells the story of the first decade of MTV, the golden era when MTV's programming was all videos, all the time, and kids watched religiously to see their favorite bands, learn about new music, and have something to talk about at parties. From its start in 1981 with a small cache of videos by mostly unknown British new wave acts to the launch of the reality-television craze with The Real World in 1992, MTV grew into a tastemaker, a career maker, and a mammoth business. Featuring interviews with nearly four hundred artists, directors, VJs, and television and music executives, I Want My MTV is a testament to the channel that changed popular culture forever.
Download or read book Inside MTV PDF or another Format written by R. Serge Denisoff and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-09-04 with total page 380 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: MTV is the third major breakthrough in music broadcasting, and the first since the late 1960s. ""Top Forty"" radio was initiated in the 1950s, and along with ""free form"" or ""progressive"" rock molded rock music exposure for nearly twenty years. Many observers credit MTV with resurrecting the music industry from the throes of the Great Depression of 1979. Few would dispute its impact on contemporary film, fashion, and radio.Inside MTV examines the world of cablecasting, the evolution of WASEC, MTV, VH-1, and some of their competitors. The strategies, personalities, promotions, and the contents that placed MTV on the road to its dominant position are described. The many controversies surrounding the channel are thoroughly detailed, and a good deal of the misinformation on the subject is corrected.It is a mere five years since MTV began as the third of four Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment Company (WASEC) channels, created by two of America's largest conglomerates. Since then, it has become a major force. Before MTV was conceived the relationship between television and rock music was weak, at best. As the new partnership .developed, a story of genius, luck, and discrimination began to unfold, and a corporate innovation of major proportions and psychodemographic success emerged.MTV is now the most profitable 24-hour cable outlet beamed from a satellite. It reaches 30.8 million households. How all this happened is chronicled in this major new book from a leading authority on the American music business.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Two bright young guys from LA struggle 'against all odds', to introduce the future of Music-Video TV to America. The story centers around, Cabot Stone, a bold, young 24 year old innovator, who finds he's up against 'the powers that be', and much more than he bargained for, trying to convince an unscrupulous, tough-minded and conservative Record Industry he's bringing them the new wave of the future. Wild women, wheeling and dealing, and outrageous parties abound, as Cabot tries to start the first Music-TV Cable Network, some five years before the launch of what later would become MTV! Cabot and his friend Chuck Fynn start their lofty endeavor by managing various Rock Bands in LA, but nightclub owners are not paying up, and basically 'using' the bands, having them set up for bogus auditions and playing for free. To break this trend, Cabot gets the idea to video tape his bands to show to club owners without having the bands set up, and it works like a charm! He then takes it one step further by setting up TV Monitors, with playback machines, in Records Stores throughout LA, proving it can sell Rock albums as never before. It's a huge success, and they're on a roll! Big Record Companies suddenly take a keen interest in Music TV, and top record exec, V.P. Lou Sideler, befriends Cabot, 'picking his brain', using him to find out all about Music Videos, by keeping him updated on how things are progressing. Needing investors, Cabot meets gorgeous Brit model, June Simms, who also turns out to be a classy UK call-girl. She invests and becomes his girlfriend. He also finds an 'angel' investor named Rick, and they start a company called Televak Music Video Corp., where they travel to Record Conventions, drawing great media attention. Then Cabot suddenly finds out his investor, Rick is a gangster, and was using his Music Video project to launder money. Rick gets busted, and they're back to square one! Undeterred, Cabot and Chuck come up with another idea, to organize a new Cable TV Network show called, "Music Video Television" with US Cable, where they won't need VCR equipment anymore, and are able to reach massive audiences in their homes, as well as in Record stores using their own Music TV Cable channel. Back in LA, Cabot arrives at his office to discover all his video-tape masters have been stolen by Lou Sideler, who obviously had his own agenda. With no product and no money, Televak is out of business. Chuck, unable to deal with the pressure, takes an overdose of drugs, and Cabot with his dream shattered, gives up his Music TV idea….but the dream would not die…..as he would later come to realize…

Download or read book Popular Music On Screen PDF or another Format written by John Mundy and published by Manchester University Press. This book was released on 1999-08-21 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Popular Music on Screen examines the relationship between popular music and the screen, from the origins of the Hollywood musical to contemporary developments in music television and video. Through detailed examination of films, television programs and popular music, together with analysis of the economic, technological and cultural determinants of their production and consumption, the book argues that popular music has been increasingly influenced by its visual economy. Though engaging with the debates that surround postmodernism, the book suggests that what most characterizes the relationship between popular music and the screen is a strong sense of continuity, expressed through institutional structures, representational strategies and the ideology of "entertainment."

Download or read book Bhangra Moves PDF or another Format written by AnjaliGera Roy and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bhangra is commonly understood as the hybrid music produced in Britain by British Asian music producers through mixing Panjabi folk melodies with western pop and black dance rhythms. This is derived from a Punjabi harvest dance of the same name. This book looks at Bhangra's global flows from one of its originary sites, the Indian subcontinent, to contribute to the understanding of emerging South Asian cultural practices such as Bhangra or Bollywood in multi-ethnic societies. It seeks to trace Bhangra's moves from Punjab and its 'return back' to look at the forces that initiate and regulate global flows of local texts and to ask how their producers and consumers redirect them to produce new definitions of culture, identity and nation. The critical importance of this book lies in understanding the difference between the present globalizing wave and previous trans-local movements. Gera Roy contrasts the frames of cultural imperialism with those of cultural invasion to show how Indian cultures have constantly reinvented themselves by cross-pollinating with 'invading' cultures such as Hellenic, Persian, Arabic and many others in the past. By looking at Bhangra's flows to and from India, the book revises the relation between culture, space and identity and challenges boundaries. It weighs both the uses and costs of visibility provided by global networks to marginalized groups in diverse localities and explores whether collaborations between Bhangra practitioners, largely of working class origin, give ordinary people any control over the circulation of culture in the global village. Finally, the book considers whether cultural practices can alter hierarchies and power structures in the real world.
Download or read book From MTV to Mecca by Mereo Books PDF or another Format written by Kristiane Backer and published by Mereo Books. This book was released on 2016 with total page 505 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the early 1990’s Kristiane Backer was one of the very first presenters of MTV Europe. For some years she lived and breathed the international music scene, quickly gaining a cult following amongst viewers and becoming a darling of European press. As she reached the pinnacle of her success she realised that, despite having all she could have wished for, she was never truly satisfied. Something very important was missing. A fateful meeting with Pakistani cricket hero Imran Khan changed her life. He invited her to his country where she encountered a completely different world from the one she knew, the religion and culture of Islam. Instead of pop and rock stars she was meeting men and women whose lives were dominated by the love of God and who cared very little for the brief glories of this world. She began to read the Quaran and to study books about the Faith. A few years later, after travelling more widely in the Islamic world and knowing that she had discovered her spiritual path, she embraced Islam in a London mosque. And then her real adventures began. In this very personal memoir Kristiane Backer tells the story of her conversion and explains how faith, despite the many challenges she faced, has given her inner peace and the meaning she sought.

Download or read book Rocking Around the Clock PDF or another Format written by E. Ann Kaplan and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-04-14 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first non-stop rock video channel was launched in the US in 1981. As a unique popular culture form, MTV warrants attention, and in this, the first study of the medium, originally published in 1987, Ann Kaplan examines the cultural context of MTV and its relationship to the history of rock music. The first part of the book focuses on MTV as a commercial institution, on the contexts of production and exhibition of videos, on their similarity to ads, and on the different perspectives of directors and viewers. Does the adoption of adolescent styles and iconography signal an open-minded acceptance of youth’s subversive stances; or does it rather suggest a cynicism by which profit has become the only value? In the second part of the book, Kaplan turns to the rock videos themselves, and from the mass of material that flows through MTV she identifies five distinct types of video: the ‘romantic’, the ‘socially conscious’, the ‘nihilistic’, the ‘classical’, and the ‘postmodern’. There are detailed analyses of certain videos; and Kaplan focuses particularly on gender issues in videos by both male and female stars. The final chapter explores the wider implications of MTV. What does the channel tell us about the state of youth culture at the time?
