They are driven by a rage and aggression and their fans are real people who have had their lives messed up. In this unique audiobiog the band reveal why they don't do drugs, talk about life on the road and how they manage their success. A classic recording for the collector and fan. 1. Language: English.

Alex Ross’s award-winning international best seller, The Rest Is Noise, has become a contemporary classic, establishing him as one of our most popular and acclaimed cultural historians. Listen to This, which takes its title from a beloved 2004 essay in which Ross described his late-blooming discovery of pop music, showcases the best of Ross’s writing from more than a decade at The New Yorker. These pieces, dedicated to classical and popular artists alike, are at once erudite and lively. In a previously unpublished essay, Ross brilliantly retells hundreds of years of music history - from Renaissance dances to Led Zeppelin - through a few iconic bass lines of celebration and lament. He vibrantly sketches canonical composers such as Schubert, Verdi, and Brahms; gives us in-depth interviews with modern pop masters, such as Björk and Radiohead; and introduces us to music students at a Newark high school and to indie-rock hipsters in Beijing. Whether his subject is Mozart or Bob Dylan, Ross shows how music expresses the full complexity of the human condition. Witty, passionate, and brimming with insight, Listen to This teaches us how to listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Ross.

Marilyn Manson, Shock Rockers, and the most controversial rock band on the planet are taking on the world. They are anti heroes and their cult status has been enhanced by the press. They are the acclaimed Kings of Goth, which has its roots in the Shock Rock peddled by bands such as Alice Cooper and Kiss. Lead singer Manson, aka Brian Warner, guitarist Zim Zim, bass player Twiggy Ramierez, drummer Ginger Fish, and Keyboard player Madonna Wayne Gacy have an obvious shock value, and their image has met with hysterical reaction from the "moral majority" and fans alike. This is not a music release by the band or their record company, and sound quality may vary. In this audiobiog, we hear sensational Marilyn Manson as the classic rock and roll heroes, people who go against the grain. Lead singer Manson is not the sinister person he is made out to be and he has an ethical code and strongly objects to anyone who brands him a Satanist. Despite the outrageous image of their comedy-of-goth circus, Manson's music is accessible. This unique and revealing interview is for every fan of goth or rock, and music buffs, collectors and music historians. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Bruen, Jean Brun.

The Brooklyn-based comedian Eugene Mirman is the stand-up king of hipsterville. He was a regular on the HBO series Flight of the Concords and now appears on Adult Swim’s Delocated — and you can see him on YouTube inventing slogans to promote Canada. Next, Merrill Garbus is the performer and multi-instrumentalist behind tUnE-yArDs — a music project that blends African-inspired rhythms and vocals with electric bass and saxophone. But she only discovered music after a failed career as a puppeteer. She tells Kurt Andersen she found musical inspiration as a student living in Africa; her mother’s ukelele, purchased at an Army-Navy store, helped her to take the plunge. Then, we asked our studio audience to tell us about their dream jobs. Eugene Mirman reads some of the responses, from “astronaut” to “artisan glass blower.” And finally, one classic reinvention fantasy goes like this: you leave a square, respectable job and write a best-selling book. Elizabeth Wurtzel did just that — but in reverse. She was in her twenties when Prozac Nation made her famous overnight. She became a rock critic and wrote a memoir about her addictions. Then she did the not-obvious thing and went to law school. Wurtzel explains to Kurt Andersen why intellectual property law is where’s it’s at. [Broadcast Date: Feburary 11, 2012] 1.
