A beautiful double-bill featuring Dave Haslam and Paul Gorman talking about their books, and comparing notes.
Paul Gorman’s dozen or more books and his involvement in exhibitions and galleries is testament to his passion for the intersections of music, style (and anti-style), art and design. His acclaimed and definitive Malcolm McLaren biography (The Life and Times of Malcolm McLaren) was published last year, described by one reviewer as “a gorgeous work, filled with the kind of startling details fiction wouldn’t dare invent”.
In the mid-80s Dave Haslam was running a fanzine, and DJing twice a week at the Haçienda in Manchester. He has since DJ’d worldwide – and written five full-length books. His latest project is ‘Art Decades’; a limited-edition series of small format books about subjects including Sylvia Plath, vinyl collecting, Courtney Love, and the artist Keith Haring. The new book in the series is ‘All You Need is Dynamite: Acid, the Angry Brigade, and the End of the Sixties’.
Expect intelligent debate, exhilarating insights, music and more.
