Lady GaGa by Terry Richardson,
Word reknown photographer Terry Richardson takes us through life with Lady GaGa in this incredible photographic book.
Over 400 brilliant photographs show GaGa behind the scenes throughout 2010/2011. From her infamous meat dress to her awards appearance in a giant egg, Richardson shows us candidly the life of Lady GaGa. There are also plenty of shots away from performing of GaGa as natural as she comes.
This beautiful hardcover book would make a great gift for any Lady GaGa fan or lover of great photography!
Life by Keith Richards, HB $49.95
From his childhood in south London, to the peak of his rocker days, to life after 50, Richards writes in a fascinating and candid manner.
He writes exactly how he speaks which at times can be a little difficult to follow but ultimately provides a very real insight into this magnificent entertainer who has had a myriad of both incredible and horrifying experiences.
It seems amazing that he can remember anything at all after those drug addled years, but the detail provided is very real and very interesting. Fans of Richards will really enjoy getting to know him better however it seems anyone interested in the music industry will enjoy this book.
Not too long ago I blogged about our selection of music cd’s and today we got a couple more in that I thought I’d mention quickly because I, personally, love these artists.
Featuring the popular singles Lisztomania and 1901, Phoenix has well and truly entered the mainstream with their jump in popularity thanks to this outstanding album. A mix of several different genres from pop and rock to acoustic and even electro, the cruisy low maintenance pop[ish] sensibility is at once fun and relaxing. I’m looking forward to summer days outside with this as the soundtrack.
Another current favourite of mine is Kate Miller-Heidke’s Curiouser. Including the first single Can’t Shake It, and the track you can’t listen to radio without hearing, The Last Day On Earth. Fabulously quirky and operatically trained, you might have seen Ms Miller-Heidke on ABC’s hit music quiz show Spicks and Specks [last year I think], and she tours locally a lot, being Aussie and all. This girl can really sing!
ps. Continue on to see a topical and HILARIOUS video [language warning!] from a performance at the Hi-Fi Bar, and get a taste for what she sounds like if you don’t already know…

We’re working to improve our range on CD’s which has been quite limited for awhile now. With no where else to buy cd’s in the street we’ve decided to expand our range including a lot of Australian artists [and all those pictured]. Whilst our range is small we’re working towards making it relevant so we can provide a selection of music that our customers are interested in. So if you hear something you like whilst in our store, check out what’s now playing shown at the counter. We’d also love you to let us know in store or by comment here what your listening to to help us to continue to improve our selection.
