And i wanted to ask you first time about choosing the material to go on there. You've got a real broad brushstrokes kind of approach to some of the things on there. How did that come about well. First of all. I'd worked with ethan before i thought well as a good start right there to to use lethem and to do something different from what we had done previously because the i did three albums with ethan sort of straight ahead of roots music live in-studio studio rhythm section straight ahead so this time we sort of put our heads together and civil. It needs to sound different unless experiment with it sounds. So that's what we did. So i i. When i when i went into mono valley in monmouth in wales i i might ever recorded in wales funnily enough because in the sixties you see. They didn't have recording studios in south ways. I thought well. This is a good place to start with recorded in wales in dimona valley. The welsh dragon was flying outside the studio and i thought well as a good start as an omen right there so then we went into so even said well songs you know and i said well. I've held onto his songs. Says was about thirty to thirty years. Old called is growing old. Which was written by. A man called bobby cole. And he gave it to me in las vegas in the seventies and i said well look. I think i'm not old enough to do this song at that time. So that was the one that i held. And i thought if i ever do lucky enough to grow old i'll do it then so i said to ethan. I think this is time to do this song now. And he said well. Do you want to admit to growing old..

John's wood neighborhood not a bad little corner of london. Not a bad into the corner. I the reason it became a recording studio was the gramophone company who were the first record company in this in this country in the world in fact so they started in the eighteen nineties obviously completing industry it was not trusted by some musicians and artists. They didn't like the idea being recorded figure. If the unknown of technology but by the mid twenties especially when the Electricity electorates recording act was passed in the nineteen twenty five recording. Just massively took off. I say that because before nineteen twenty five most recordings with just mechanical musicians would crowd around the big acoustic horn. And if you want it relative music to be loud or that musician we just move closer to the whole you know. It's very mechanical.

Tina decided in the early nineties to tell her story in a file graffiti and the movie. What's love got to do with it. Starring angela bassett. A hope was that this would answer. Everyone's questions about her past and she could leave it there but of course the thirst for a sensational headline was not quenched. Gems continue to fixate on ike despite teen is far greater solo success. And so this is one of the tensions in tina. How to tell tina turner's story like is of course a huge part of it. It would be remiss to the him out plus the footage of the i. Continues of stage is incredible. But the main focus of tina turner's story is the determination of an extra ordinarily talented performer to overcome the struggles of an abusive marriage and funds. Success in the music industry eventually becoming one of the world's biggest rock styles. influencing everyone from mick jagger to be on say over several decades we watch a move. From the r&b she made with ike to vegas variety shows to pop producers in europe where she finally found her audience.

L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club

Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau. Natalie, wood reading a role for the same film at the age of sixteen. When able with a direct. Ray Hotel. She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

"Hello and welcome to the monocle coaches show with me Robert bounds ninety years ago. So the birth of one of the most important, independent, publishers, Faber and favor. The company is known for publishing some of the greatest writers of the last century. TSA Elliott also kind of the boss and Sylvia Plath and Philip log in two Samuel Beckett to some of the best selling new named in fiction such Sally Rooney and Layla slim Arnie having survived a World War all of the financial peaks trust of the twentieth century and the digital boom in the twenty first. How has this literally? Bam caps his doors open and pages turning well, Toby fehb, but the grandson of the publishing houses founded, Geoffrey Faber has just published a book called Faber and Faber the untold story this traces the history of the company through letters reports and diary entries. All founded an authors up until nineteen ninety revealing. How some of the greatest books are age ended up on bookshelves around the world and equally fascinating. How some great works with turned down for being rubbish. On the program today be joined by Toby favor whose favors managing director for four years. And it's now a non executive director and chairman of sister company, Faber music and later, all speak to the novelist and critic, Alex Preston whose books in love and war the revelations and this bleeding Sissy published by. Toby? Thank you very much for joining us today. I wanted to sell off with the way that you the book out, and you've done a social history rather than sort of read through biography festival wife, you don't like that macabre histories. I do have this reputation for being amazingly dull books as he read back saying nineteen thousand a very good year. I'm things like that. And I just thought I had I had this brainwave basically that the way to make this book. Exciting new a really good story to tell. But the way to make it exciting was not to tell it in my words, but to tell it actually in the words that people are living at the time. So the letters the diaries the memos that really bring out the story because the people who have caused writing then what is going to happen to favor. So there isn't there is that same sense of jeopardy that comes to through from reading the words, they don't know, you know, Lord of the flies is going to be important to whatever it is that just writing in the moment. And of course, that way, you get you get to read the actual correspondence editors and. Novelists and poets tone of voice. And it's an interesting thing some of some people seem to even in even even knowing it's just off his correspondence to be writing for posterity. What? Now looks like it might be Sylvia Plath letter to her mother, which is one of the things that you look at and she she doesn't seem to have an off day as a writer, even when she's just rising to a family member. Whereas other people that just quite officially will. I you're right. Needless to say when you as some writing this book come across that letter. Yeah. And I can put it together with the photograph. That captures the moment. She's talking of Ted husband on the stairs being inducted as the new generation of fiber poets. I just think it's terrific. This is an exit of that letter. This is some from nineteen sixty Sylvia pastor mother Ted, and I went to a party favors. Give Wh Auden. I drank champagne with the appreciation of housewife on evening of from the Saleh milk and diapers. Is that the image straight away, doesn't it? It's perfect. It's perfect self. Philip Larkin is amazing. We listeners might know the correspondence between Philip Larkin and kings Amos, which is famous famous the lock unless. Yeah. And of course, they had a sort of competitive sort of competitive antenna slanging match against the world and kind of against each other. But he's soft in in the early days of his correspondence with favor when he's right into the publishing house. Okay. I also poems taking. Look. On sadly, start off by rejecting those. And when he says, do you mind if I show them to another publisher, no fine. Go ahead, which you know, you look back on using goodness. I'm cold, huge amounts of problems that fibers Elkins, original publish that. We all finally now the publisher of lock ins Patrie. Yes, he's a different young, man. And even says wouldn't Charles Monty who is one of the great favorites? I get in touch with him. He does say I'm glad you couldn't touch. It starts thinking favors is rather forbidding father figure. Yeah. And that's interesting. So what about that reputation favors the story of favor rather public story of it? And some of the writers that it's published have given this slutty sort of stentorian grandfatherly and grand reputation is that fan. What about what did you? How did you? But it's wonderful as well because he won't people to favor stance or something and it clearly stands for excellence of great writing. And all of that. I don't think it also stands for being forbidding. But that's that's a different question. You see them struggling with this right from the beginning, actually. So it's amazing high quickly and fiber quiz reputation nine hundred ninety nine during the nineteen thirties. It starts to take on all these great poets. So that by the end of the nineteen thirties. It is absolutely Reggie the gold standard in poetry with all that means and extending to hold the rest of modernism, really literally modernism. So we've already got that by the end of the nineteen thirties. And you see my grandfather worrying budget, easy him saying, I want us to have a reputation for high quality, but that's not the same as being highbrow. We've always got to look to publishing the books that are going to meet a more general reshape even if we are also doing these books out of the ones that now, you know, generations later, we think of as the books that make favors name. You take these the guy that didn't sign the Beatles. Kind of knocks on the chin. Fortunately, for for Lord of the flies. Well, let she'd down and out in Paris and London the jewel. I threw novella you favor rejected favor rejected and it didn't matter. We had the child's protective again for animal farm in nineteen forty four. Yes, you should have an frightening. Just. It's so sad. When you look back in it. But that's what happened. And I it was in both cases Elliott he had his reasons of I think Craig good intellectual reasons, and they weren't to do with thinking the writing wasn't good. For example, always recognize the quality of the writing in the case of dynamite in Paris, London. He just felt it didn't hang together quite as a book. Yeah. In the case of animal farm. It was that he didn't feel nineteen forty four was the right time to publishing a book. That is quite so rude about us over allies. And you can understand that in retrospect, you you just which of course, it he had taken the plunge and done it because that would have brought us not just animal phone, but also nineteen hundred four two books that would make any backlist. We started that part of the conversation to talking about times been favored didn't sign. The Beatles were William Golding through the flies. Go to reprieve. I think down to Chelsea Monte taking the rains, which is good. Of course standing. It was it was kind of like a like a kind of Grand National trying to stop breathing hoses. Right.

So it feels like you're kind of really in this studio with them and going through it with them. And it's a lot of fun. Nice Symon. What is exciting you other than mea and Cameron post was? I'm off t to run save the Toronto international film festival in two weeks which I'm really excited about. And there are a couple of films that are playing that will get release later on in the autumn one I'm weirdly excited about is a star is borne starring lady Gaga and directed bizarrely enough by Bradley Cooper, it's his directory. This film. Exists. It's what I've been waiting for my whole life. No, I think probably is such a weird, fascinating Hollywood person to me. I don't understand him. I don't understand that he's in the choices that he makes. And so I think this will be a kind of anti Lalande kind of thing. It looks like it's going to take it very seriously, and I kind of left that I love a classic Oskar Beatty serious, maybe like that. Thank you very much into that brings to the end today. Show run out time gang. Thanks very much to my guests. Cimarron hands Hutchinson, and Georgie Rogers. Thanks of course to my producer, Holly Fischer back at the same time next week, and we'll be giving the new album by Anna Calvi been. But until then for me, Robert bound, thank you very much cheating.

"Just on the point about musical films and the great show in which a couple of mentioned already. Is this an interesting area whether it's disconnect between the critical response and the actual commercial? Because the great Sherman critics did not like that, but it put up some pretty good numbers in cinemas because obviously resonated with the the public, is there a bit of a disconnect between the critical community and public and doesn't matter Sherman paps? It was exaggerated quickly because actually most people gave it three out five as I did may be some to five, but it wasn't panned became a new story that it was panned. That's not the case. But of course, audiences did love much more than most critic seems. And I think very interesting what you were all saying really about the response to that. Some of my pairs all recognizing that we need to think about how the audience responded, why the going certain types of films. I mean, people are not going to mama Mia to for a fantastically rewarding in deep story. They want to sing. It's jukebox musical. It's an event movie. It's something you go to. Sing along with, and I still feel within those problems as it could have done better, but it's a live on that basic level Miller. You sort of alluded to this earlier written very entertainingly about your shift in your attitudes towards the first picture. And this is complicated, complicated, personal history, and some of the suffering the to go through join us early screenings, but was part of that shift in your to to do with the reaction you saw it getting from from the public is still quite powerful whether or not we agree with it for critical reasons. His proven very potent force has is definitely a person that really didn't have anything to do with me coming back around to it. So for context, ten years ago, I worked in cinema and you mentioned singing dancing is have to sing dance clap at the end of every showing of mama. Mia, which we showed from the day came out the day. It came out on DVD. We were like fifteen IMO underpaid teenagers made by sadistic manager to stand in front of the screen. All the credits rolled on the cost of having that party and clap Unswayed. From side to side for the audience who having a great time while we were not. So it took a long time to go over the tumor of that mortifying experience. But no, last year I just thought I think are quite, let's try this again. I had become a bit less serious in a bit more into kind of like high camp and Paul and flamboyant things. And I did like it those things. If an high, countless of flamboyant entertainment things you're constantly trying to certainly make me watch and listen to more of this is a moment is nervously. We having this aber re re release owns in serendipitous. Don't turn control the groups, maybe making some original music and this sort of thing wh. Why now does this come back to where we started this idea of a sobering time for the world and people want to escape you've been committed throughout? What would you think this is happening now? Well, clearly, I think one of the reasons the reviews have embedded for the second because I have to say, I actually haven't decided which like the most to be honest. They're very similar to me in the way I liked, but I think those eight. Was a different world. You know, I believe Obama's being elected or was president, and this time you, you know, we had only horrible news more more so than installs eight and people. They generally need escapism in a way. So I think this counts a lot in. Oh, so that's why people are looking for Cam for more frivolous frivolous. But you know, as as Laura mention, it is quite emotional as well. I did cry in one of the performances when marriage strip. I don't know if the show spoiler free or not, but so there's also the emotional discharge, but but clearly into eighteen people need more escapism their lives for sure. One of the, I, I guess, an individual who sort of embodies the notion of cinematic musical escapism share. We've mentioned already a couple of times and we have to mention this is a stellar appearance is very exciting again. Does it live up to you? I wonder what were your expectations did up to them?.

"That were all it was sort of mcqueen ask kind of full mcqueen was doing it and she took she took on all sorts of issues domestic violence and and climate change and all these sorts of things and made controversial controversial points in her in her none to fashion magazine the ultimate fashion magazine i suppose italian vote and and it was kind of a lot of that i kind of felt there's a lot of that's in it kind of saying that fashion can fashion can make statements about the world where do we where do we sit on that we step outside of the of the film for second yeah yeah i believe that is the case in this this film reminds me that when someone that singular comes through they are capable of really shaking things up and something original and the level of shock and and kind of scandal if you like the his shows promoted or kind of throughout is actually quite readies days i find me a highland right collection now which is going to get front pages of the top lloyd guy in what is this signals and it just doesn't happen and regattas way you stand on that particular show i think he he made that impact he made it will remain in kind of quote a real person that's what this reminds me that he just feces surprise ungodly he doesn't disappearance that sort of spin golly sort of i must not say anything because i am fashion gold thing mode which so many people do even though you sent you see him slimming down and becoming very self conscious about his his his look it doesn't change his accent yeah and that kind of stuff and i think that's what makes the end of this historic very side is that he's still real person right the end and very lonely nobody could create motion by the queen if you leave by motion then i'm not do much probably feeling like you've just had some delange i wanted to be exhilarated emotion is almost confessional in my work everything do is personal even cutting into hologram he such a great protagonist for film i mean he so good i've read this in a few reviews in fact of of the country that people said he shouldn't have been tom ford or tom ford fine but we kinda wish lee mcqueen had had take behind the lens do you see any of that i know is that kind of the nice trick of the review it to say that he he could've gone and made made feature film for sure i mean he suddenly had that i am not censor trauma and gets people's attention and we'll get people talking absolutely and he's if i can this because of course it's ragstoriches story and probably one of my favorite parts of the film is the early paul the film where you'd find that the son of a cabbie with his brothers and sisters in an all he was obsessed with growing up was closed and it's stored new idea of someone just being born into it and just having that passion from the word go and then i inspiring element of how he just not have a role doors and and got work and insisted and just proved himself with his talent so that's me is the most extraordinary part of the film when you find out more about that man i mean everybody i mean i love that was that was the time when i was going up and getting my first job jobs and things as well and it depicts the ninetieth quite well the hedonism creativity the fact that.
