Soul Jazz Books

    SORRY, OUT OF PRINT!

    For anyone in the slightest bit interested in New York's vibrant art and music scenes in the 1980s, this is an essential book brought to you by Soul Jazz Records! “New York was a scary and legendary place and downtown was like a bohemian living museum, which was pretty thrilling for an aspiring artist and musician. It was all very new and exciting, at least for me and it was incredibly funky, the sleaze and poverty were everywhere.” DAVID BYRNE

    This is a unique, luscious large format book from Soul Jazz Records and our first publication. New York Noise features amazing photographs of the New York music and art scene during the 1980s alongside text from some of the most important musicians and artists of the period. With hundreds of stunning photographs of everyone from Andy Warhol, Africa Bambaataa, Martin Rev, Richard Hell, Lou Reed, Keith Haring, Patti Smith, John Cage, Michael Stipe, Liquid Liquid, Julian Schnabel, Futura 2000, Madonna, Jean Michel Basquiat, ESG and many more the book is a who’s who of New York’s downtown scene during this period.. The book shows how Hip-Hop,Punk, No Wave, Free Jazz, Underground Dance and Experimental music scenes collided with the art world over a ten-year period and captures the vibrancy of this era when everyone in a band was also an artist, every artist was also a film-maker and every film-maker in a band. Accompanying text by the likes of David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Cindy Sherman, Suicide, Liquid Liquid and many others brilliantly evoke the vibrant New York scene in its heydey and make this a unique product of great beauty and unlike anything else you have seen! With over 400 images, most of them previously unpublished, this is an essential document of a fascinating era in New York’s music and art scene – a must have for everyone! Hurry, limited quantities. This is a heavy book! Sorry about the postage if you are abroad - we are actually charging less than it actually costs us to ship. Reviews (and Galleries): The Times The Guardian The Telegraph
