The 1980s songwriting partnership of McLennan/ Forster was a little like an Australian Lennon/ McCartney. The pair wrote all the band’s distinctively original material and, like their more famous counterparts, shared the credits and alternated on lead vocals.

Grant & I is an extraordinary portrait of an intense, creative, sometimes fraught friendship that represented a genuine meeting of artistic minds. In Grant & I, the reader is given a front-row seat at the sessions that produced an incredibly prolific and diverse song catalogue. Just as The Go-Betweens were like no other music group, so this book is like no other music memoir. It is wise and witty, poignant, insightful, self-deprecating and knowledgeable. Robert Forster is as natural a storyteller and prose writer as he is a songwriter, and Grant & I is an unforgettable ride. Please contact Penguin Australia for rights information.

Careless Whisper George Michael

Robert Steele 320pp 234x156mm OP57431 Print ISBN 9781785585999 Hardback £19.95 19.10.17

George Michael was pop’s great survivor. UK radio’s most-played artist of the last 35 years and the superstar behind the legendary eighties’ Faith album and tour, he was a musician with international credibility. He was also a disastermagnet whose serial missteps and scandals never seemed to dent his professional reputation. This searching biography throws a light on Georgios Panayiotou, the Anglo-Greek London boy who had to hide his homosexuality when he was half of the pop phenomenon Wham! before becoming a global superstar and an overtly gay man. In Careless Whispers author Robert Steele details every step of the conflicted star’s career and digs deep into his closely-guarded private life. Drawing on first-hand accounts from Michael’s ex-manager and the journalist who was part of his social circle in the 1980s, Careless Whispers goes on to explore the more recent scandals and the imprisonment that might have derailed George Michael’s career but, perhaps predictably, proved to be just another interruption in the métier of a much-loved icon.

1968. A year of riots, revolution and worldchanging rock ’n’ roll. Except for Elvis Presley. The King of the 50s had become the Clown of the 60s, churning out bad music in dismal films, a humiliating spectre of his former glory. In the words of the hip young director assigned to his first TV special, Elvis’ reputation was “in the toilet.” Only the same director, Steve Binder, was now about to save it. Together they would embark on the biggest creative fight of Elvis’ life. Overcoming insecurity, paranoia, a failing marriage, network censors, drugs, the over-protective Memphis Mafia, the sabotaging whims of manager Colonel Tom Parker and the heat exhaustion of his soon-to-be iconic black leather suit, with his ’68 TV Special, Elvis gave the defining performance of his career.

From the staccato post-punk of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the dark rock of The Sisters of Mercy, through to the macabre industrial metal of Marilyn Manson and the funereal emotional pop of My Chemical Romance, the gothic subculture was first born through music and continues to adapt in order to survive. The Art of Gothic explores the full spectrum of gothic’s visual output, from album covers and ephemera to fashion, book jackets, cinematography, computer graphics and fine art. The styles covered include post-punk, gothic rock, industrial, deathrock, gothic lolita, steampunk, and neo-noir. More than 400 artworks provide a striking record of this visual and image-conscious movement. Written by Natasha Scharf— the world’s foremost authority on gothic culture—and with a foreword by Andi Sex Gang, The Art of Gothic makes for the ultimate visual journey through the gothic underground.

The arT Of GOThIC

The Art of Gothic lifts the coffin-lid on the seemingly endless appeal of the gothic aesthetic, its followers dressed head-to-toe in black, often with extreme makeup.
