Description


SPACECAKE chronicles the misadventures of a debauched and dangerous masochist as he tantrums his way through the sleazy worlds of Rock & Roll, music video and technology, each squalid escapade dragging him ever deeper into a repugnant maelstrom of sordid excess...well sort of. A wee bit. Actually...not remotely. 

It’s all about the work really.

If you don’t recognize the name, Kevin Godley was a founder member of ground breaking UK band 10cc. (Their single, 'I'm Not In Love' continues to be one of the best selling records of all time). As one half of Godley & Creme he went on to pioneer the notion of music video as an art form and was responsible for iconic clips by artists such as Herbie Hancock, The Police, Duran Duran, Lou Reed & Frankie Goes to Hollywood etc, continuing to up his game in solo mode with U2, Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, The Beatles & Blur amongst others. KG thrives on re-inventing himself and SPACECAKE, his first book, takes you on an interactive tour of his life via pictures, music, film clips and 27 chapters of abstract insight into how everything from the first hits to WholeWorldBand, his music/video collaboration app, got made. It’s dark in some of the corners though...so make sure you bring a torch.

Customer Reviews

Great format, breezy and interesting

First, Kevin Godley is wicked smart, and his music is super interesting on part with Queen, Talking Heads, Japan (David Sylvian), et al. He’s directed a good percentage of the music videos you’ve thought were totally cool, even if you don’t know his name.

This is a great format for a biography, because a) it’s entirely an indie project, very raw though still well-edited and well-written, and b) because he’s a multi-media guy, and this format lets him hyperlink straight to mp3s and unlisted YouTube videos to illustrate what video or song he’s talking about.

Very helpful thoughts on songwriting, vivid picture of being a rock star in the early 70s, not to mention growing up in the 50s as an art geek with Jewish ancestry in England.

You can probably read the whole thing in a day; definitely a nice iPad purchase for beach reading or whatnot.
