Paul McCartney tells the story of writing Eleanor Rigby

From the Beatles 1966 album Revolver, "Eleanor Rigby" embodied a shift for the band from pop rock and rollers to a more mature group eager to experiment and harness the power of studio production and emerging technology. In the New Yorker, Paul McCartney wrote down the story behind all the lonely people. — Read the rest

So verändern sich Träume während der Schwangerschaft

„Ich träumte ständig davon, dass mich jemand verfolgt. Ich erinnere mich immer noch genau an alle Details, obwohl das jetzt schon 28 Jahre her ist“, erzählt uns eine Mutter. Eine andere Frau, mit der wir sprachen, hat ebenfalls immer noch lebhafte Erinnerungen an einen Traum, in dem sie einen heftigen Streit zwischen ihrem Ehemann und ihrem Ex aus Schulzeiten schlichten musste. Was haben die beiden gemein? Sie hatten diese Träume während ihrer Schwangerschaft: eine Zeit, die dafür bekannt i...

The Does and Don’ts of Putting on a Prison Concert: Johnny Cash, BB King, the Grateful Dead, Bonnie Tyler & The Cramps

The prison gig has been a staple of live performance since Johnny Cash played Folsom in 1968, with variations on the theme like the Cramps’ legendary performance at a California Psychiatric Hospital (revisited in the documentary We Were There to Be There). Some bands who play institutions may not be far away from inhabiting them. When the Sex Pistols played Chelmsford Prison, it was not the first time guitarist Steve Jones had been inside, what with his 14 criminal convictions. In fact, ...

How Radiohead Wrote the Perfect James Bond Theme Song

Over the past 59 years, the duty of performing a James Bond movie theme has fallen to the likes of Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Bono, Madonna — and most recently, for the latest installment, No Time to Die, Billie Eilish. But one of the greatest Bond themes ever written has never been heard in any of the movies. This, in any case, is the contention of the video essay above, “How Radiohead Wrote the Perfect Bond Theme.” Commissioned for 2015’s Spectre, the second-most recent fi...

Drukqs Turns 20

A little more than a decade ago, I was among a few thousand starfuckers jammed into some kind of converted industrial space that wasn’t too far from downtown Austin. It was the last night of SXSW, and Kanye West was putting on a G.O.O.D. Music showcase. If you were inside that big dank brick room, it was only because you’d worked every connection you had, begging and cajoling and frantically emailing. At one point during the show, I felt someone jostling me from behind, and I shoved back. A minu...

“The Hippie Temptation”: An Angst-Ridden CBS TV Show Warns of the Risks of LSD (1976)

To lysergic acid diethylamide, better known as LSD, we owe much of what has endured from Western popular culture of the mid-20th century: consider, for instance, the latter half of the Beatles’ oeuvre. In Revolution in the Head: The Beatles’ Records and the Sixties, Ian MacDonald describes LSD as “a powerful hallucinogen whose function is temporarily to dismiss the brain’s neural concierge, leaving the mind to cope as it can with sensory information which meanwhile enters without prior a...

Mozart Sonatas Can Help Treat Epilepsy: A New Study from Dartmouth

Many and bold are the claims made for the power of classical music: not just that it can enrich your aesthetic sensibility, but that it can do everything from deter juvenile delinquency to boost infant intelligence. Making claims for the latter are CDs with titles like Baby Mozart: Music to Stimulate Your Baby’s Brain, a case of trading on the name of one of the most beloved composers in music history. Alas, the proposition that classical music in general can make anyone smarter has yet ...

Krautrock legends Faust: ‘We were naked and stoned a lot – and we ate dog food’

They blagged a fortune off their label after promising to be ‘the German Beatles’ – then went wild in the countryside making experimental krautrock. But was there more to Faust than pneumatic drills and nude donkey rides?Jean-Hervé Peron, former bassist and vocalist with Faust, would like to get something straight about his old band – specifically, the period in the early 1970s when they were living in a commune in Wümme, a rural area outside Hamburg. Faust’s time in Wümme is one of the great sa...

Gandhi in heels? Maria Callas statue hits the wrong note
