Fuori dalla consueta diatriba Cantautori vs. Sanremo e Rock italiano vs. Musica leggera, Superonda è il racconto di quelle musiche che tra 1964 e 1976 riuscirono a sviluppare linguaggi originali e in grado per una volta di proiettare la musica italiana all’estero, esercitando una sotterranea influenza sul mondo dell’elettronica, del rock alternativo, e delle musiche sperimentali. Un percorso accidentato in cui le vicende di future icone nazionali come Ennio Morricone, Franco Battiato e Area si mescolano a quelle di artisti convertiti al rock come Mario Schifano, in cui l’avanguardia di Berio e Maderna dialoga a distanza con la musica su commissione dei Goblin e delle sonorizzazioni Rai, e in cui i fermenti della cultura underground fanno da sponda a colonne sonore per film di serie B, revivalismi folk e free jazz militante, per arrivare al Lucio Battisti di «Anima latina». Sullo sfondo, la nascita di un immaginario italiano fatto di spaghetti western e bottiglie molotov, gialli alla Dario Argento e avanguardie radicali, riviste di controcultura e sceneggiati di fantascienza, comuni freak ed espropri proletari.

We live in a pop age gone loco for retro and crazy for commemoration. Band re-formations and reunion tours, expanded reissues of classic albums and outtake-crammed box sets, remakes and sequels, tribute albums and mash-ups . . . But what happens when we run out of past? Are we heading toward a sort of cultural-ecological catastrophe, where the archival stream of pop history has been exhausted? Simon Reynolds, one of the finest music writers of his generation, argues that we have indeed reached a tipping point and that although earlier eras had their own obsessions with antiquity - the Renaissance with its admiration for Roman and Greek classicism, the Gothic movement's invocations of medievalism - never has there been a society so obsessed with the cultural artifacts of its own immediate past. Retromania is the first book to examine the retro industry and ask the question: Is this retromania a death knell for any originality and distinctiveness of our own?

The 25-year period beginning with the Allied occupation of Italy in 1943 and ending with the social upheavals of 1968 witnessed a renaissance of artistic development that touched virtually every part of Italy's culture, with painters like Lucio Fontana challenging painting's two-dimensionality and traditional subject-matter. In the United States, artistic preeminence in the postwar period is generally accorded to Americans; this volume, which includes 20 essays and over 600 color reproductions, demonstrates that in terms of invention and influence Italian artists played a varied and important role during this period.

Julian Cope, eccentric and visionary rock musician, follows the runaway underground success of his book Krautrocksampler with Japrocksampler, a cult deconstruction of Japanese rock music, and reveals what really happened when East met West after World War Two. It explores the clash between traditional, conservative Japanese values and the wild rock 'n' roll renegades of the 1960s and 70s, and tells of the seminal artists in Japanese post-war culture, from itinerant art-house poets to violent refusenik rock groups with a penchant for plane hijacking.

What exactly are the Weird and the Eerie? In this new essay, Mark Fisher argues that some of the most haunting and anomalous fiction of the 20th century belongs to these two modes. The Weird and the Eerie are closely related but distinct modes, each possessing its own distinct properties. Both have often been associated with Horror, yet this emphasis overlooks the aching fascination that such texts can exercise. The Weird and the Eerie both fundamentally concern the outside and the unknown, which are not intrinsically horrifying, even if they are always unsettling. Perhaps a proper understanding of the human condition requires examination of liminal concepts such as the weird and the eerie. These two modes will be analysed with reference to the work of authors such as H. P. Lovecraft, H. G. Wells, M.R. James, Christopher Priest, Joan Lindsay, Nigel Kneale, Daphne Du Maurier, Alan Garner and Margaret Atwood, and films by Stanley Kubrick, Jonathan Glazer and Christoper Nolan.
