In 1966, Frank Zappa entered a Los Angeles studio to record his groundbreaking first album, Freak Out! Not only was the result rock's first true concept album, but it was a Statement Of Intent, a shot across the bows of the rock and roll establishment, rock's teenage consumers, conservative American values and more besides. Freak Out! would have major influence on a brewing countercultural movement that would wipe clean and draw again the face of popular music, both in America and elsewhere. In A FREAK OUT IN THE MAKING, Scott Parker tells the story behind the making of this landmark album, examining the songs, the recording sessions, the key players who made the album (including the members of Zappa's Mothers Of Invention), the behind-the-scenes politics which threatened to keep the album from finding its audience and Zappa's ultimate triumph as Freak Out! became recognized as the first truly significant 'underground' rock album.

Russell Senior was Jarvis Cocker's partner-in-crime in Pulp, and the most stylish man in Britpop - known in certain circles as the Imelda Marcos of sunglasses. Freak Out the Squares is Russell's exceptionally witty, unusual and enlightening account of the heady times being a key member of Britpop's best-loved and most enduringly relevant band. The first account of life in Pulp, it takes as its starting point the band’s reunion tour in 2011, which culminated in a triumphant Glastonbury performance. It's packed with good stories about Britpop luminaries, including Jarvis of course, and digs back into Pulp's origins in Sheffield and to their glory days at the height of Britpop. Russell Senior is a man too smart to have ever been a pop star. And Pulp were too odd a band ever to have become so big. But we can only be grateful that he was, and they did – and that Freak Out the Squares tells the story in Russell's inimitable, entertaining and fascinating way.

Freak-out is part political diatribe, part primal scream. The 2016 election was a test of our national character, and we failed. The Russians may have sent a wave of disinformation that scrambled the brains of undecided voters but unless they hacked the voting machines in three swing states then this election wasn't stolen. Sixty-three million people voted for Trump. Ultimately, we weren't screwed. We, the people, screwed ourselves.

You were born for this. God hardwired you—yes, you—for this. I'm talking about sharing Jesus with others. What if I told you evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation? What if I told you that God has created you to bring glory to himself by sharing Jesus with others, and that you don’t need years of training to obey what he already made you to do? God created you for his glory to advance his gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In these pages you will read how to connect the gospel story with your story, and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know. No gimmicks. Nothing clever. No need to freak out. Just you, Jesus, and others—in conversations that matter.
