Orson Welles's Last Movie - Josh Karp

Imagine you’re a writer, and you’ve decided to write about an Orson Welles film. Do you choose his magnum opus, Citizen Kane? Or maybe a dark horse pick, like The Magnificent Ambersons or Touch of Evil? Well, if you’re Josh Karp, you pick none of the above…you pick the one that was never released. By choosing the tumultuous production of The Other Side of the Wind, which has yet to see the light of day, Karp paints an Orson Welles touched by genius and numerous flaws. This seems is a story that encapsulates a man renowned around the world as the creator of the greatest film of all time—and why he fell from grace.

Everybody Loves Our Town - Mark Yarm

Sometimes, you get the sense that there isn’t one particular truth, but a large collection of singular, subjective truths drained into one bowl. So it is with the early 90’s grunge scene, where the participants can’t seem to unanimously agree on what it was about, or who it was for, or even if there was such a thing. In Everybody Loves Our Town, Mark Yarm collects many of these dissenting voices (including the big ones, like Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, and Courtney Love), and manages to place them in a fashion that convincingly resembles order. The end result is the definitive story of the Seattle Grunge scene—complete with originators (the U-Men), pretenders (Candlebox), and Cobain and Company. It’s a must-read for any punk and/or grunge music fan.

Sub Pop U.S.A. - Bruce Pavitt

“Tomorrow’s pop is being realized today on small decentralized record labels that are interested in taking risks, not making money.” It’s a wonderfully prophetic excerpt from Pavitt’s underground manifesto, eight years before he founded Sub Pop Records and transformed the scope of pop by heading the early-90s Seattle grunge scene. This anthology collects Pavitt’s Subterranean Pop zines, in which he aimed to promote geographically specific pop music. It includes essays from Pavitt and collaborators about their efforts to revolutionize the music scene, and also features reviews of bands like Sonic Youth, Soundgarden, and the Butthole Surfers before their names were on the lips of every self-respecting rock fan in the late 80’s. In an era where music (and everything else) can be co-created by people living on opposite ends of the world, Sub Pop USA serves as a radical historical document that demonstrates how, once upon a time, cultural uprisings could only be created by people living in immediate physical proximity to one another.
