Fagen by Michael Morey
In 1898, in an era of racial terror at home and imperial conquest abroad, the United States sent its troops to suppress the Filipino struggle for independence, including three regiments of the famed African American "Buffalo Soldiers." Among them was David Fagen, a twenty-year-old private in the Twenty-Fourth Infantry, who deserted to join the Filipino guerrillas. He led daring assaults and ambushes against his former comrades and commanders—who relentlessly pursued him without success—and his name became famous in the Philippines and in the African American community. The outlines of Fagen's legend have been known for more than a century, but the details of his military achievements, his personal history, and his ultimate fate have remained a mystery—until now. Michael Morey tracks Fagen's life from his youth in Tampa as a laborer in a phosphate camp through his troubled sixteen months in the army, and, most importantly, over his long-obscured career as a guerrilla officer. Morey places this history in its larger military, political, and social context to tell the story of the young renegade whose courage and defiance challenged the supremacist assumptions of the time.
Eminent Hipsters by Donald Fagen
A witty, candid, sharply written memoir by the cofounder of Steely Dan In his entertaining debut as an author, Donald Fagen—musician, songwriter, and cofounder of Steely Dan—reveals the cultural figures and currents that shaped his artistic sensibility, as well as offering a look at his college days and a hilarious account of life on the road. Fagen presents the “eminent hipsters” who spoke to him as he was growing up in a bland New Jersey suburb in the early 1960s; his colorful, mind-expanding years at Bard College, where he first met his musical partner Walter Becker; and the agonies and ecstasies of a recent cross-country tour with Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs. Acclaimed for his literate lyrics and complex arrangements as a musician, Fagen here proves himself a sophisticated writer with his own distinctive voice.
Clean Hands Pure Heart by Graham Fagen
A major commission for Tramway, Graham Fagen's new work further explores one of the artist's main themes - the creation and disconnection between a personal and national, historical and contemporary identity. 'At school we were taught what was our cultural heritage. We learned Burns off by heart and recited it back to our class. Outside school, however, the music I was listening to - Jamaican reggae - was, in a sense, the cultural antithesis of my heritage but it made more sense to me'. Working with acclaimed music producer Adrian Sherwood, two Burns songs - 'Auld Lang Syne' and 'The Slave's Lament' were combined, arranged and produced by Fagen, Adrian Sherwood and Skip MacDonald and performed by Ghetto Priest, The publication shows how this new work further develops Graham Fagen's main themes and places them in a wider context. Includes a poem 'Shuggar Heid' by James Robertson, whose latest book Joseph Knight is about the last black slave in Scotland, Scotland's relationship with Jamaica and the Empire.
