Transworld has signed an autobiography from New Order lead singer Bernard Sumner, with plans to publish in autumn 2014.
The musician has been part of the Manchester music scene since the 1970s, having been a founding member and guitarist for Joy Division, before going on to lead New Order.
Doug Young at Transworld signed UK and Commonwealth rights, including serial, in an auction with Kevin Conroy Scott at Tibor Jones on behalf of Prime Management.
Sumner said: “Joy Division and New Order have both left quite a legacy but up until now I’ve been happy to let the music speak for itself. Somehow it feels like the right time to give my personal perspective both on my own life story and the many bands I’ve been in.”
The as-yet-untitled book will explore Sumner’s formation of Joy Division alongside Ian Curtis, his relationship with band mate Peter Hook, and the inspiration for Blue Monday, the biggest selling 12” single of all time.
Brian Jones co-wrote this jingle with the J. Walter Thompson ad agency. It was only shown in England in 1964.
This beautiful portrait of Carol Lyn Black lip synching to her favorite song might be the greatest bounce of happiness you’ll ever see. “Happy Days Are Here Again” indeed.
I got the shoes like Jagger…
Referred to as “Michael” (his birth name) a 15-year-old Mick Jagger was on a TV show called ‘Seeing Sport’, he’s already got attitude burning in him, despite his “They’re quite satisfactory for climbing,” the man says before the clip cuts off.
Now we know why he can’t get no satisfaction. Someone must have taken his shoes.
Riverfest Elora, the town’s annual celebration of community and music, was founded in 2009 by
artist Marilyn Koop. The festival, which was initially held as a fundraiser on the grounds of the Elora Centre of the Arts, has moved across to street to its new home at the picturesque Bissell Park, on the banks of the Grand River. Now in its fifth year, Riverfest Elora has brought an array of musicians to the small village, including Cuff the Duke (2012), The Wooden Sky (2012), Rawlins Cross (2009), Prairie Oyster (2010), Dala (2010) and Danny Michel (2011). Riverfest founder Marilyn Koop passed away in
April 2012. The festival continues for its fifth year in 2013 in her memory.
Eclectic indie rockers Born Ruffians, legendary Celtic fiddler Ashley MacIsaac and experimental pop star Rich Aucoin will headline the 2013 edition of Riverfest Elora, Saturday, August 17th 2013. Elora’s annual celebration of music and community returns to the picturesque Bissell Park for its fifth year.
This year’s line-up includes one of Canada’s most exciting indie bands, Born Ruffians. The Toronto-based band has spent the past year touring in support of their third studio album, Birthmarks. Their unique blend of pop/indie rock and their stunning ability to craft an infectious piece of music has earned the band worldwide acclaim.
Also joining the Riverfest lineup is renowned Cape Breton fiddler, pianist and step dancer Ashley MacIsaac. MacIsaac’s music combines traditional Cape Breton style with a new age rock, hip-hop and roots influence. MacIsaac made himself a household name with the release of his 1995 album, Hi, How Are You Today?. He has since sold over half a million records.
Rounding out the headliners is Halifax experimental pop superstar Rich Aucoin. Aucoin has spent the past year bringing his legendary live show to festivals around the globe. The typical Rich
Aucoin show includes a mosh-pit under a giant multi-coloured parachute, a surfboard which Aucoin uses
to “crowd surf” and interactive video projections.
The afternoon of the festival will spotlight the talents of the local music community. This includes performances from the renowned sessional guitarist Kevin Breit, who will be joined by the Upper York Mandolin Orchestra, Guelph-based folk band Lowlands, songstress Alanna Gurr, alterna- funk collective The Boo Radley Project and Elora-based rockers The Shawn Connerys.
Riverfest Elora is an all-ages licensed event. Wine, beer and food will be available for sale, provided by local restaurants and shops. Lawn chairs and blankets are highly encouraged.
Tickets for Riverfest are $40 in advance or $45 at the door, free for children under 12. Tickets are now on sale. They are available for purchase online at riverfestelora.com and in-person at the Shepherd’s Pub and Box Social in Elora, the General Store in Fergus, and The Cornerstone in Guelph.
Doors open at 2PM, with local music kicking off at 3PM, rain or shine.
