Patrick likes to read books about music and talk about them. Today, he tells us about “Facing the Other Way: The Story of 4AD” by Martin Aston, published in 2013. 4AD is an important record label in the UK, with a classic roster that included Bauhaus, Pixies, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and many others.
Patrick just finished two books and wants to share them with you. The first is “Meet me in the Bathroom,” by Lizzy Goodman, an oral history of the New York music scene in the 2000s, which brought us the Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Interpol, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and many other cool indie bands. The second book is “You Never Give me Your Money” by Peter Doggett, about the business and legal battles of the Beatles after they broke up.
