Michael Peter Balzary was born in Melbourne, Australia, on October 16, 1962. His more famous stage name, Flea, and his wild ride as the renowned bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers was in a far and distant future. Little Michael from Oz moved with his very conservative, very normal family to Westchester, New York, where life as he knew it was soon turned upside down. His parents split up and he and his sister moved into the home of his mother's free-wheeling, jazz musician boyfriend - trading in rules, stability, and barbecues for bohemian values, wildness, and Sunday afternoon jazz parties where booze, weed, and music flowed in equal measure. There began Michael's life-long journey to channel all the frustration, loneliness, love, and joy he felt into incredible rhythm.When Michael's family moved to Los Angeles in 1972, his home situation was rockier than ever. He sought out a sense of belonging elsewhere, spending most of his days partying, playing basketball, and committing petty crimes. At Fairfax High School, he met another social outcast, Anthony Kiedis, who quickly became his soul brother, the yin to his yang, his partner in mischief. Michael joined some bands, fell in love with performing, and honed his skills. But it wasn't until the night when Anthony, excited after catching a Grandmaster Flash concert, suggested they start their own band that he is handed the magic key to the cosmic kingdom.Acid for the Children is as raw, entertaining and wildly unpredictable as its author. It's both a tenderly evocative coming of age story and a raucous love letter to the power of music and creativity. *WITH AN ORIGINAL POEM FROM PATTI SMITH* 'Flea creates a rhythm for his prose as curt and distinct as his bass playing.' Jim Farber, The Guardian'He writes in Beat Generation bursts and epiphanies... You'll put down Acid for the Children with your human sympathies expanded; you'll feel less alone.' The Atlantic

What have you got when you Got the Life? From Korn's legendary bassist comes a no-holds-barred look at the extreme highs and drug-and-booze-fueled lows of the biggest heavy metal band of our era Music was in his bones. From the time he was an infant, Fieldy watched his dad's band perform, and soon enough he found his own calling: the bass. After high school, with a guitar and little else, he left his small California town for the music scene in L.A. Before long, Fieldy, Brian "Head" Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer, drummer David Silveria, and Jonathan Davis would gel together and form a band with a completely new sound - Korn. What happened next was something Fieldy had always dreamed of but was totally unprepared for: Korn exploded, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and fronting the nu metal phenomenon. Fieldy was thrust into the fast-paced, hard-rocking spotlight. Korn began to tour incessantly, creating intense live shows fueled by wild offstage antics. Fieldy became a rock star, and he acted like one, notorious not only for his one-of-a-kind bass lines, but also for his hard-partying, womanizing, bad-boy ways. The more drugs he took, the more booze he drank, the worse he became: He was unfaithful, abusive, mean, and sometimes violent. By all appearances, Fieldy had the life. But he was on the dark path of excess, alienating friends, families, and loved ones, nearly destroying himself and the band. It took an unexpected tragedy to straighten him out: the death of his father, a born-again Christian, to a mysterious illness. Following his father's dying wish, Fieldy found God. Filled with the spirit of his new faith, Fieldy quit drugs and drinking cold turkey, and found the best part of himself. With never-before-seen photos, and never-before-heard stories, Got the Life is raw, candid, and inspiring - the ultimate story of rock and redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.

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.

From up here on stage, I can see her. Even with her first lady hair and Sunday school shoes, I can’t take my eyes off of her.  The music starts. I swing my hips to the thumping bass. Oh, so slowly I slip one button through a hole, then another, then another. I ease the black silk from my shoulders and toss it right toward her.  I watch her pale glossy lips form a big ‘O’ before she catches it like a major league baller. The flashing lights blind me. Between beats, I can see her blue eyes zeroed in below my waist. I know what she wants. I give it to her. With a zip and a tug, the leather pants join the rest of my clothes. In my skin tight briefs, I dance just for her. With the last chord of the song, the stage goes dark. I know when the lights come up again, another guy will be dancing in my place because this is my last time. I’m not doing this ever again. It’s too bad I didn’t get her name. I really liked that shirt. But not enough to go back and claim it. If she wants me bad enough, she’ll have to find me.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael T.

From the golden-haired, curly-headed half of Simon & Garfunkel - a memoir (of sorts): artful, moving, lyrical; the making of a musician; the evolution of a man, a portrait of a lifelong friendship and collaboration that became one of the most successful singing duos of their time. Art Garfunkel writes about his life before, during, and after Simon & Garfunkel...about their folk-rock music in the roiling age that embraced and was defined by their path-breaking sound. He writes about growing up in the 1940s and '50s (son of a traveling salesman), a middle class Jewish boy, living in a red brick semi-attached house in Kew Gardens, Queens, a kid who was different - from the age of five feeling his vocal cords "vibrating with the love of sound"...meeting Paul Simon in school, the funny guy who made Art laugh; their going on to junior high school together, of being 12 at the birth of rock 'n' roll, both of them "captured" by it; going to a recording studio in Manhattan to make a demo of their song "Hey Schoolgirl" (for $7!) and the actual record (with Paul's father on bass) going to number 40 on the national charts, selling 150,000 copies.... He writes about their becoming Simon & Garfunkel, taking the world by storm, ruling the pop charts from the time he was 16, about not being a natural performer but more a thinker...touring; sex-for-thrills on the road, reading or walking to calm down (walking across two continents - the USA and Europe). He writes of being an actor working with directors Nicolas Roeg (Bad Timing) and Mike Nichols ("the greatest of them all")...getting his master's in mathematics at Columbia; choosing music over a PhD; his slow, unfolding split with Paul and its aftermath; learning to perform on his own, giving a thousand concerts worldwide, his voice going south (a stiffening of one vocal cord) and working to get it back...about being a husband, a father, and much more. 1.

Mit 15 Tracks, darunter 6 exklusiven, stellt die schwedische Produzentin ihre Fähigkeiten unter Beweis - eine meisterhaft gemischte Orgie des guten Geschmacks, vom Klassiker bis zur zeitgenössischen House-Perle ist alles dabei.nnNach der Ankündigung von Kerri Chandlers The Watergate Files EP, die unter anderem auch einen Remix von La Fleur beinhaltet, nimmt sich letztere nun unserer 16ten Watergate-Compilation an. Mit 15 Tracks, darunter 6 exklusiven, stellt die schwedische Produzentin und Neuzugang bei Watergate-Records auf 78 Minuten Spielzeit ihre Fähigkeiten unter Beweis. Ihr musikalisches Spektrum erstreckt sich von alten House-Klassikern zu zeitgenössischen Techno-Perlen - gemixt mit viel Liebe und intuitivem Gespür. Die Compilation beginnt mit verträumtem Vinylknistern und einer exklusiven Produktion von Matthias Meyer, die an Deepness kaum zu übertreffen ist: Miss Apre Gate (Beatless Version) ist ein perfekter, stimmungsvoller Opener und legt die Messlatte von Anfang an auf Anschlag. Die nächsten drei - ebenfalls hausinternen - Tracks erzeugen eine dichte, mystische Atmosphäre und machen Lust auf Sommer. Zum zweiten Viertel bekommt der Mix einen technoiden old-school Charakter, eingeklammert von La Fleurs noch unveröffentlichten Produktionen Stella und Arms Around. Die einzig richtige Konsequenz: Miss Kittin. Mit What To Wear im bisher unveröffentlichten SPN Remix beweist La Fleur exzellenten Geschmack und eine grundsolide elektronische Sozialisierung. Mit Quantum Entaglement (a.k.a. Ninja Tunes' Fink und unserem Lee Jones) markiert sie den Anfang vom Ende. Watergate 16 ist eine meisterhaft gemischte Orgie des guten Geschmacks und wird am 30. Mai veröffentlicht. TRACKS: 01. Matthias Meyer . Miss Appre Gate (Beatless Version) . Watergate Records (exclusive track) 02. Of Norway . Trust In The You Of Now .
