Die Kindle-Version empfehle ich für unterwegs, da der geschriebene Inhalt deutlich aufregender ist als die Bilder. Ist natürlich nur für Fans.

I would rather recommend Peter Hook's book, as more detailed and fun to read 21. Oktober 2014
Von Daniel R. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Comparing with Hooky's recent book, Barney's book is not as good. Hooky's stories are much more readable and enjoyable,
as far as story of Joy Division goes. Barney talks most likely about himself, and his family. A lot of personal information (that's good and interesting), especially given that Barney was always more private person (compared to Hook), but much less info about e.g. his band mates. He doesn't really say much what he thinks about Hook, Curtis or Morris. One can say that his book is more 'politically correct' than Hook's book, but also less fun.
All in all, I would recommend Peter Hook's book, as more personal, detailed and fun to read.

Introspective, Selective, but a Good Read 30. Oktober 2014
Von John S - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I would have never expected an autobiography from Bernard Sumner. And I'm sure, if it weren't for Peter Hook's recent venture into literature, that might still be a very faint possibility. In the book Bernard explains that, at last, he wants to share his personal experiences that provided the foundation for his music, in order for us to get a better understanding of it. I'm not so sure about that premise: we enjoy this or that music through our own experiences, which most likely are completely different from those of the musicians, and thus irrelevant. So anyway, it was kinda scary to be invited into a singer's brain, especially when that person has been famously reluctant to share his private life. I mean, I was more scared to read Bernard's book than probably him writing it! So let's go over a few things: substance and form.

Ever since I read "Raise The Pressure", I knew the lad could write (prose, that is). There's this misconception that talented people of art can sit down and write as well. But poets often turn out to be bad prose writers (and prose writers in most cases are awful poets). I remember being let down by Mark E. Smith's autobiography that felt like it was written with alcohol rather than ink. Bernard, on other hand, delivered. His clear, well-constructed, at times very eloquent (though at times also repetitious) paragraphs and coherent narration make a pleasant, easy reading. That's important, as there is no co-writer involved (and it'd be safe to assume, no ghost writer either).

Content. The book itself is a beautiful journey from the cobbled streets of Victorian Salford to driving a Mercedes, Elvis style. That Bernard could be a jerk, I suspected, but here he explains why he had to be one: who else would program all these computers to make bearable music? Who else would stop touring to recover from Pernod? Who else would grip Rob's arm - about to throw the band's money into the Hacienda pit of hell? Exactly.

Be aware that Bernard's book is very introspective, so it's rather selective and a lot of things are either left out or, on the contrary, given a disproportionally great detail. For example, a quarter of the book is about his childhood, where he depicts the difficult relationship with his mother, a lot of illness in his family and hopeless school environment; all that must have had a gripping hold over his formative years and it's no wonder that he went off the hook in the 80s: he basically lived adolescence anew and re-developed as a human being, never minding the price of his newly found hedonism. Although Bernard does describe different methodologies of his music writing in Joy Division and in New Order, there's not much background provided for specific songs; he goes at length about recording "Blue Monday", "Confusion" and "World in Motion", and goes on record to explain why he would never be tired of singing "Temptation" -- but that's it. Several albums ("Power, Corruption & Lies", "Low-life", "Brotherhood") are also completely ignored. There are people who can always tell you precisely when this or that happened; Bernard is not one of them -- dates are not part of his mental landscape (unlike Peter Hook who kept a good track of time in his books).

As far as Peter Hook is concerned, Bernard dedicates numerous pages to his former bandmate, giving us, at last, his side of the story of Hooky's departure. It's also very interesting to learn his vision of the whole Hacienda thing (and compare it with Hooky's memoirs). The most intriguing figure in the book, besides the author, is manager Rob Gretton, and I appreciate Bernard's astute assessment of Rob's personality (he, nevertheless, has room for hilarious stories, like the one about Rob reading NME from cover to cover to Bernard while the latter was trying to sleep). The most bizarre part is the book's appendix that includes the complete transcript of the hypnotic session with Ian Curtis held a few weeks before his death.

Von crunkyteen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Bernard Sumner's Chapter and Verse, or as it's noted here - Divided Joy? - is a fun book to read but one comes away from it with the unsatisfying feeling that Sumner is as much a cypher as ever. His recollections of his youthful adventures seem pallid and at times, unconvincing when compared to his ex-compatriot Peter Hook's own memoir (the much, much more detailed Unknown Pleasures). The best parts of this book revolve around Bernard's childhood in 50s and 60s-era Salford. Unfortunately accounts of his actual time with Joy Division and New Order are almost glossed over and he ends the book basically trying to convince us - or maybe himself - that he's having the time of his life with the current touring line-up of New Order.

Von James S. Prichard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
i am grateful that i found bernard. he is a fabulously wonderful singer and lyricist and writer of music for guitars and synthesizers. he is beautiful and interesting and articulate. bernard has the luxury of being mostly unknown. he has been fascinating in interviews in numerous music mags, on 'star test' , and my favorite concert footage of new order - montreaux 1993 , and he is fascinating here in his book. he is self deprecating and funny and humble and friendly . for me , this book is a treasure , but i am biased , as i love bernard. i revere and treasure one other supergiant, named danny kirwan. i pray that prayers heal him . david gilmour needs no healing , he is also a favorite stellar lifeform.
