Pressestimmen

The key to Yeah Yeah Yeah is the mix of erudition and brilliantly sharp perspective; a mind equally intrigued by Bill Haley and Beyonce. Delightful and illuminating, this is the pop answer to The Rest is Noise. -- Roy Wilkinson MOJO 20130930 London has the A-Z, and pop now has Yeah Yeah Yeah. Finally, pop music has its Boswell -- Caitlin Moran A good old romp through the late twentieth century's greatest art form. -- Jeremy Deller For everyone who ever made a mix tape Observer ...Noel Coward talked of the potency of cheap music, and Yeah Yeah Yeah is a love letter to this potency, written by a besotted and discerning suitor...as Yeah Yeah Yeah proves on nearly every page, Bob Stanley is both a fine writer and an impassioned celebrant of pop in all its mongrel, misfit glory, sending you back to records you know and in search of ones you don't with the giddy adolescent expectation that no pop fan should ever lose -- Stuart Maconie The Times There is an ache there as much a part of pop as its natural exuberance, and Stanley's book - funny, wise, almost encyclopaedic - is testament to both aspects of the form. Independent Entertaining, informative and great...he's a fine writer with a jukebox brain and a sense of humour. Through Yeah Yeah Yeah's fantastic analysis and history of pop he makes brilliant observations...this book covers everything- from pop's beginnings int the 50s to Beyonce and beyond, via Top of the Pops, Smash Hits, rock, punk, disco...It's essential. -- David Quantick Q Magazine If anyone is qualified to condense the history of pop music into a 747-page book and reclaim the subject from the MP3 vs. vinyl hand wringers, it's Stanley. As founding member of Saint Etienne, music press stalwart and owner of a notoriously extensive record collection, Stanley practically has A-Levels in rock 'n' roll. The Quietus Firstly, what makes this a must-read is Stanley's habit of nailing exactly what gives pop its romantic attraction; by the end of his concise dissection of The Beatles, you need never read another word about them. Secondly, the breadth and depth of his knowledge is astonishing. Most pages feature enough recommendations to send you on countless musical tangents, ensuring that the book becomes as much a trusted reference point as it is a wildly entertaining read. -- Jamie Atkins Record Collector What is striking about Yeah Yeah Yeah (as perfect a title for a book about pop as you could imagine) is that Stanley's interest is principally in the music. Yes, he writes about pop image, the music press and the record industry when he has to. But it all starts with the sound...Whether you agree with his judgements or not, you will stay for the writing. Stanley is able to sum up a singer or a song in a few well-chosen words...It is also a book full of wonderful I-didn't-know-that asides...glorious -- Teddy Jamieson The Herald There are many candidates for the title of the last man to have known everything: Leibniz, John Stuart Mill, Archimedes, take your pick. It's entirely possible that the last person to have listened to everything - everything in pop, at least - is Bob Stanley...For readability and appreciation of scale, sweep and drama, Stanley is the Antony Beevor of pop...This book will change the way you think about a protean form of music that you have known all your life and I stand in awe of it. New Statesman A book every bit as well researched and infectiously enthusiastic as you would expect ...From A&M to ZTT, Stanley has missed nothing and Yeah Yeah Yeah excels at offering both a broad overview of the subject as well as a devilishly detailed account. Either read the thing from cover to cover or dip in and out according to mood, but do check out the story of modern pop, because it's one that will never be told again. -- Lee Bullman Loud and Quiet 20131001 'with his incisive and erudite eye, Bob Stanley manages to deal with the broad specifics of huge cultural and industrial changes during this period of recent history without losing sight of the smaller scale...make sure to pick up Yeah Yeah Yeah, a book which looks set to be an essential tome for any pop fanatic'. -- Mark Corcoran-Lettice NARC Magazine 20130925 With births come deaths and the rise and fall of Top Of The Pops, Smash Hits, vinyl, cassettes and CDs show just how pop has developed and how it has changed the world.This encyclopaedic labour of love traces 50 years of contemporary chart music and it leaves no stone unturned. -- Harry Hodges Daily Express

Yeah Yeah Yeah 16. September 2013
Von S Riaz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It is surely no coincidence that the title of this book comes from one of the most exuberant and joyful pop records ever made, because this is certainly written with boundless enthusiasm and a real love of music, which shines through. In five parts, the author takes you on the journey of popular music from 1952 until the early 1990's. The book begins with the first UK singles chart, the advent of the 45 and early rock 'n' roll. In the first part the author looks at the importance of skiffle, Larry Parnes and fledging British rock, Joe Meek, Phil Spector, the Brill Building and Elvis, among others.

Generally, each part of the book concentrates on a decade - the fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties and the start of the nineties. I have to admit that I found the first half of the book the most interesting, but that probably just reflects my musical tastes. However, whether you are a fan of the Beatles, Dylan, Motown, Glam Rock, Punk, Britpop or anything in between, they are all covered. Although the author obviously cannot give detailed biographies of every artist involved in popular music, he puts bands and styles of music in context and assesses their legacy. Also, despite the huge time period and amount of musical styles and bands covered, there is an abundance of interesting and funny stories, which bring each section to life. This is a book that you will be quoting from for some time if you read it and I cannot think of a better gift for a music lover. Considering the task that the author set himself, this is a magnificent achievement.

Read it. And the listen to it. 22. Januar 2014
Von Matthew Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The charm of this book is its complete lack of snobbery. That the author can take as much joy from the Archies as from Hendrix.
The joy of the book is in the listening. Where Stanley almost beseeches us to check out, for one example amongst many, the Deep Soul tracks that he obviously worships.
And the reason that you should shell out the cash for this book is simple: The love of modern pop music.
A real and true treasure. Thank you Bob Stanley - your book is a diamond!

the amazing bob stanley 22. Oktober 2013
Von daniel singer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The author, Bob Stanley, besides being part of one of the best bands of the last 20 years, Saint Etienne, has written one of the best books about pop music in the last 20 years. That the breadth of the subject covered is included in one volume is a triumph of his writing, organization and editing. This is a book you will keep going back to.
This is a history from Stanley's personal point of view, and there will be quibbling about his opinions and who he left out. Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, and Steely Dan are all sort of quickly dismissed, while he devotes 2 chapters to ABBA and the Bee Gees. Some artists are barely mentioned (Nyro and Drake). Mostly, he is right on. In brief comments, he lifts up both The Association and Slowdive, and says Morrissey is the best lyricist Great Britain has produced. Hurray.
All facets of pop music are covered in the book, from shoegazing to house, from British folk to Philly Soul. This is an incredible one-stop history and a real achievement. Great work, Bob.

Hail, Trans-Atlantic! 21. November 2013
Von Quiet Wyatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It comes as no surprise that one of the trio who have made 25 years' worth of fantastic music under the name Saint Etienne has turned out to be an adept chronicler of 60+ years of pop music. His record collection must be staggering. This is a long but breezy book, equally suited for reading start-to-finish or dipping in to selected eras at will. It's largely chronological, with side-trips to discuss genres, fads, and individual artists at appropriate points. I don't agree with every pronouncement Stanley makes about certain bands and artists, but I'm glad he makes them -- this is an *opinionated* stroll through pop history, not a dry timeline.

I especially appreciate the way he hops back and forth across the Atlantic as rock and pop have done over time; I've read many books with either British or American focuses, but never one that tried to make sense of how the balance has shifted between them like this one does. I also applaud Stanley for paying necessary attention to the role of disco / dance / techno music, which is so often ignored or posited as antithetical to rock music when it's a vital part of its DNA.

"Yeah Yeah Yeah" takes us from the birth of rock in the 1950s up to about the year 2000, where Stanley draws a line and claims that download culture is fundamentally different than the "Top of the Pops"/"American Bandstand" chart-driven era. I 60% agree with him and 40% think this line is a little arbitrary... but at 750 pages as it is, he had to stop writing somewhere! I look forward to Volume 2 ("Meh Meh Meh"?) when the dust settles on the forecast Death of the Music Industry (TM).

It's all here and a great read too 16. Juni 2014
Von Geoffrey Buckett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Stanley surprised me by being on top of the music and a perceptive social observer at once giving depth to the various changes in Pop over time. He holds the various threads together to give a cohesive theme while delighting with "by the way" notes at the end of chapters and personal opinions which I came to like. Above all he is an adept writer with an eye for metaphor which is at times wonderful - "it sounded like music trapped in a bottle for 20 years then released as gas". It's a great read.
