Our American (and Canadian) friends in particular might remember "Trouser Press" magazine, which was published from 1974 to 1984. It was a terrific monthly publication helmed by its editor / publisher Ira Robbins.
In May of last year (2021), Ira released a digital-only book entitled "Music in a Word (Volume 1)."
The book's description is as follows: "Subjects include Trouser Press, John Lydon, Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, Ice Cube, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Cure, Blondie, Be-Bop Deluxe, Liz Phair, Michael Jackson, T. Rex, the B-52's, Elvis Presley, Jethro Tull, J. Geils, Public Enemy, David Bowie, R.E.M., Linda Ronstadt, Pavement, Kirsty MacColl, Holly Beth Vincent, Billy Joel, Tears for Fears, Julian Cope and Ian McCulloch, as well as movie reviews and much more."
The section on Be Bop Deluxe is 30+ pages!
The digital book can be ordered through Amazon... and although a hard-copy edition will be released this year (2022), please note that it will not include the chapter on Be Bop Deluxe.
There is also a "Music in a Word (Volume 2)" that has just been released, and it is available once again through Amazon and comes in both digital and hard-copy formats. It is described as follows: "The second volume of veteran rock critic Ira Robbins' anthology-and-memoir Music in a Word trilogy compiles his extensive writing about nine artists: The Who, Cheap Trick, the Ramones, Nirvana, the Clash, the Kinks, Elvis Costello, Keith Richards and the Replacements."
