49,00 zł 31,04 zł


Antologia zbierająca wszystkie groteskowe oraz purnonsensowe opowiadania, wierszyki i rysunki Johna Lennona w jednej publikacji w kongenialnym tłumaczeniu Filipa Łobodzińskiego. Na kolejną po prozach Boba Dylana i Nicka Cave'a oraz tomach Laurie Anderson i Patti Smith „rockandrollową" książkę w Biurze Literackim składają się trzy zbiory tekstów założyciela najsłynniejszego zespołu muzycznego w dziejach - „John Lennon in His Own Write" (1964), „A Spaniard in the Works" (1965) i opublikowane pośmiertnie „Skywriting by Word of Mouth". W „Przestworzonych rzeczach" dochodzi do głosu absurdalne, niekiedy czarne poczucie humoru, a zabawa językiem graniczy z prestidigitatorstwem. Lennon tworzy neologizmy z łatwością oddychania, żeniąc wyrazy, szatkując je jak warzywa na zupę, wyginając i odbijając w krzywym lustrze. Poszczególne teksty zdradzają otrzaskanie autora zarówno w klasyce brytyjskiego absurdu, jak i twórczości mistrzów pokroju T.S. Eliota czy L. Carrolla. Wszystkie aluzje do brytyjskiego czy amerykańskiego życia pozostały sobą, a poza tym mamy tu lot kuli w bilardzie elektrycznym po zakamarkach języka, wyobraźni i nadrealnej wrażliwości. Reguły gramatyki i ortografii mają wolne. Czytanie na głos grozi sierścią lub szlachectwem

Personally compiled and curated by Yoko Ono, Imagine John Yoko is the definitive inside story - told in revelatory detail - of the making of the legendary album and all that surrounded it: the locations, the creative team, the artworks and the films, in the words of John & Yoko and the people who were there. Features 80% exclusive, hitherto-unpublished archive photos and footage sequences of all the key players in situ, together with lyric sheets, Yoko's art installations, and exclusive new insights and personal testimonies from Yoko and over forty of the musicians, engineers, staff, celebrities, artists and photographers who were there - including Julian Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Alan White, Jim Keltner, David Bailey, Dick Cavett and Sir Michael Parkinson. 'A lot has been written about the creation of the song, the album and the film of Imagine, mainly by people who weren't there, so I'm very pleased and grateful that now, for the first time, so many of the participants have kindly given their time to "gimme some truth" in their own words and pictures' Yoko Ono Lennon, 2018 In 1971, John Lennon & Yoko Ono conceived and recorded the critically acclaimed album Imagine at their Georgian country home, Tittenhurst Park, in Berkshire, England, in the state-of-the-art studio they built in the grounds, and at the Record Plant in New York. The lyrics of the title track were inspired by Yoko Ono's 'event scores' in her 1964 book Grapefruit, and she was officially co-credited as writer in June 2017. Imagine John Yoko tells the story of John & Yoko's life, work and relationship during this intensely creative period. It transports readers to home and working environments showcasing Yoko's closely guarded archive of photos and artefacts, using artfully compiled narrative film stills, and featuring digitally rendered maps, floorplans and panoramas that recreate the interiors in evocative detail. John & Yoko introduce each chapter and song; Yoko also provides invaluable additional commentary and a preface. All the minutiae is examined: the locations, the key players, the music and lyrics, the production techniques and the artworks - including the creative process behind the double exposure polaroids used on the album cover. With a message as universal and pertinent today as it was when the album was created, this landmark publication is a fitting tribute to John & Yoko and their place in cultural history.

Described by Lennon as ‘the best thing I’ve ever done’, and widely regarded by critics as his best solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was released alongside the remarkable Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band on 11 December 1970. With first-hand commentary by John & Yoko, members of the Plastic Ono Band and other key figures in their lives, and packed with evocative and revealing letters, artworks and photographs, this incisive volume offers new insights into the raw emotions and open mindset of Lennon after marriage to Ono and the break-up of the Beatles. Following their wedding in March 1969, Lennon and Ono decided that their future musical endeavours should be credited to a conceptual vehicle, the Plastic Ono Band. The band featured an ever-changing line-up of musicians, including Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, Ringo Starr, Alan White, George Harrison, Billy Preston and Jim Keltner, all of whom played live with Lennon and Ono, and contributed to their recordings. The fearless honesty that John & Yoko inspired in one another in their search for truth, meaning and peace had a huge impact on Lennon’s song writing, resulting in the creation of tracks that are intensely personal and unlike anything previously heard in popular music, including ‘Mother’, ‘Working Class Hero’ and ‘God’. This book takes those lyrics as a starting point and explores Lennon’s life, relationships and world view during this transformative period.
