Needle in the Groove Read & Download Î 104 In this astonishing novel Jeff Noon allows the complex rhythms of dance music to infect his language creating a new kind of writing liuid dub poetics in the grooves he discovers a world where the scratches of the stylus cut the body a dj's samples are melodies o I m not entirely convinced that this book knew what it wanted to be Very broadly speaking texts that earn the handle experimental are those that tweak some stylistic convention attaining to realism in order to show A the constructedness of all texts and slash or B that realism is itself a genre laden with political and ideological codes which typically present bourgeois values as normative And Noon s Needle in the Groove is certainly experimental The novel s dialogue is set off by em dashes a la Gaddis all terminal punctuation marks have been replaced by slashes effectively making the text read like an album s liner notes an effect I think Noon was striving for and there s almost no exposition to ground the reader to either setting or plot So setting and plot are bourgeois affectations and uotation marks are bourgeois affectations and if you need periods then you re like totally suaresville man cause that s not what this book s about But so then what is this book about Here bassist Elliot Hall oh there aren t any capital letters either so it s actually elliot hall is recruited to join a band with drummer 2spot singer donna and dj jody who are making an album of what we re led to understand is a special though unspecified kind of new music that is being recorded on the sci fi recording medium liuid These liuid recordings are about the size of a gumball and can have their recordings remixed just by shaking them as in shaking this gumball sized globe produces a different track when that globe is replayed Much of the first half of the novel is about the band laying down and versions of what they expect will be their hit single and then shaking the globe the last version was recorded on and then being not uite satisfied and then trying again Woven throughout these sessions is the disclosure of elliot s cliched drug habit from which he s recovering and the band s various and cliched love triangles and the revelations about ever taciturn 2spot s musical lineage and cliched messed up childhood the angst from which childhood drives his creativity From these brief scenelets the reader gathers that each musician desires contact with their musical heroes and inspirations which contact is only possible to them as it is to us through the music they left for us But then without much preamble these guys decide to freebase the liuid recording globes liuid and transport themselves to the moments when their musical role models were in their primes This Noon s literalization of the cliched apothegm about music being a drug capable of transportation is the most interesting part of the book and it allows Noon to introduce competing timelines and hallucinatory visions and just basically confuse the reader s certainty of what s really happening in this novel and what isn t This would seem to underline the novel s experimental cred in that these effects show the novel s and the Novel s artificiality and play against our bourgeois expectations about novels taking care of us and providing clear conclusions The rest of the novel is an investigation into one of the band members deaths which investigation necessitates the use of the last remaining globes liuid a recording medium that has since been discontinued because one gathers many people began taking advantage of its hallucinogenic potential and leads to a revelation that isn t especially revelatory And I think I would be cool with all this if there was harmony between the novel s experimental features and its central theme The thing that this kind of experimentation accomplishes is a sense of distance between the text and the reader this text resists the reader s attempts to ignore its artificiality as well as get transported into the world of the text s construction Which is fine but then the novel is ABOUT art s capacity to transport us and function as a kind of hallucinogen that makes suiggles on a page or scratches embedded in vinyl seem real This dissonance is to me at least unaccountable Maybe Noon wants to be a musician instead or maybe he wants to suggest that these artificial means of connecting with humanity aren t entirely sufficient or maybe his point is that bassists are shallow and shouldn t get to narrate At the end of the whole

Jeff Noon ✓ 4 Summary

Needle in the Groove Read & Download Î 104 F blood love is a ghost lost in the boom box and the only remix that really matters is the remix of the heartAfter years of playing bass in lousy two bit bands elliot finally gets his big chance he meets a singer a dj and a drummer who seem to have everything pa Having read several other of Noon s books I found this one very different but no less enjoyable Instead of creating a whole new imaginary world as in Vurt etc this is a tale based around a real Manchester drawing inspiration from five decades of a genre spanning music scene focusing mainly on punk and the death thereof The book is still touched with fantasy but it is of a means to an end rather than the main thrust of the book It is set in our normal world and the fantasy element I won t give away any details allows the characters to explore themselves their music and the past It is written in what I find to be an amazing style though I can see how some people might struggle with it There is little punctuation the phrases instead being separated by slashes these give the book a sort of digital feel and at the same time the feeling of reading inside someone s head their thoughts put straight down on paper instead of being thought over and tidied up first See what I mean The book is full of music and the descriptions of songs blew my mind particularly when King Crimson happened to come on the radio while I was reading After a chapter where perhaps the band meet up to rehearse there will be a page long chapter describing writing or telling might be better verbs here the song itself in beautiful exploding starbursts streaming over the riffs poetry that I think can only be fully appreciated by someone who really appreciates music whatever your chosen genreAll in all this is a book about music and musicians how they come to be and how they often come to end
