East (Cold Chisel album)
East is the third studio album by Australian pub rock band Cold Chisel, released in June 1980. The album spent 63 weeks on the national chart, it was the biggest-selling Australian album release of the year. It was the only Cold Chisel album to chart in America, reaching 171 on the Billboard 200, it reached number 32 on the New Zealand charts. The cover art was inspired by the 1793 painting The Death of Marat by Jacques-Louis David; the photo of Barnes was taken at Roger Langford's apartment in Elizabeth Bay, where the video for "Cheap Wine" was shot. Barnes had purchased the headband in Japan, years discovered he had worn it upside-down. Walker said, "I got the idea of the Marat/Sade ripoff. I knew. Jenny spent a whole week getting the bric-a-brac together out of the antique shops and second-hand book shops. There was a certain list of books I wanted but she came back with some wonderful stuff I would never have thought of." Elsewhere, Walker said, "We knew Greg Noakes was the guy to do the photography, because he's been doing wonderful photography for us for years.
After the photography, I had to go overseas, Phillip Mortlock and Rod Willis were in charge of putting it all together."The album was preceded by the release of the single "Choirgirl", recorded in October 1979 and released in November, the band's first recording with Mark Opitz who would work on all subsequent 1980s Cold Chisel albums. The bulk of the album was recorded in March and April 1980, with the band having completed little writing before entering the studio. Opitz said, "I booked Paradise as a lock-out; the only people allowed in were friends of roadies. I did that to make sure the roadies got their free feed."The songs "Cheap Wine" and "My Baby" were released as singles. East was the first Cold Chisel album to feature tracks written by all members of the band. Opitz said, "One of the key aspects was breaking Don's songwriting monopoly, it gave variation to the confidence to the players. Don was comfortable with this changed dynamic, because it meant he no longer had to come up with all the songs."
Barnes said, "They had to drag us out of the studio. Each of us was saying,'Wait. I've got another song.'"East was a deliberate attempt by Cold Chisel to make a more commercial album. Walker said at the time, "I go to bed with a tape recorder under my pillow; the tape loop says,'hit single, hit single, hit single.'" Allmusic describes the album as, "their most accepted and artfully constructed album." Producer Opitz said of the pressure for commercial success, "My brief to myself was: “I don’t want to sacrifice the credibility of the band, but I still need hits.” Of course, the band at that stage were letting. Because they weren’t a successful recording band."Some of the songs were topical at the time of release. "Ita" referred to television presenter Ita Buttrose. "Star Hotel" is written about the riot that took place there,"Choirgirl" about abortion, "Four Walls" referenced the riots at Bathurst Gaol. Barnes said, "At the time we'd been doing a hell of a lot of gigs in jails and Don had been into it.
He'd been talking to William Munday and all those people, I don't think he knew why, but he was sort of obsessed with the penal system."Later, Walker was described as keen to downplay the political nature of the songs. Walker said, "That whole East political thing, all those things were not said by us. Most of the themes were dreamed up by reviewers."Barnes was using a combination of speed and red wine to improve his vocal performance in the studio. Walker said, "Jim had developed into the most incredible singer, he could do anything. He could sing melodies in a way that thought about; the international version of the album features a different track listing, with no "Ita" or "Four Walls" on the B-side, but instead a rare acoustic intro version of the single Khe Sanh, never released anywhere else. The back cover of the album contains a different group photograph of the band members than what is seen on the Australian version, as it was felt the band would look like "a bunch of cowboys" to an American audience.
Cold Chisel's catalogue was re-released in collectors editions 2011. East re-entered the charts for 3 weeks, peaking at number 19. At the 1980 TV Week/Countdown Music Awards, East won a number of awards, including Best Australian Album, Best Australian Record Cover Design and Most Popular Record. In October 2010, was listed in the book, 100 Best Australian Albums with their 1982 album Circus Animals at No. 4. In a 2011 Triple J poll, East was voted as the 21st best Australian album by industry pundits, 42nd by station listeners. In a 2012 Triple M poll,'East' was voted as the 3rd'Greatest Rock Albums of all Time'. Rolling Stone Australia said at the time of release, "East has something quite different, quite unique in Australian music. In taking the diverse influences of Otis Redding, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, The Who and applying this sensibility to Australian context Cold Chisel have done something remarkable. East, quite is a superb album."A review at Allmusic described the album as Cold Chisel's, "slickest to date," and, "More commercial without compromising on the rawness of their roots."
Reviewer Adrian Zupp gave the album a rating of four and a half stars from a possible five and summari

Rising Sun (novel)
Rising Sun is a 1992 novel by Michael Crichton about a murder in the Los Angeles headquarters of Nakamoto, a fictional Japanese corporation. The book was published by Alfred A. Knopf. Gia Carangi is featured on the cover. Although a detective/murder mystery novel at first glance, Rising Sun deals with the controversial subject of Japanese-American relations, questions the premise that foreign direct investment in the high-technology sectors of the United States is beneficial. Throughout the book, the differences between the Japanese and Western mindsets are highlighted in the areas of business strategy and corporate culture. Nakamoto Corporation is celebrating the grand opening of its new headquarters, the Nakamoto Tower, in Downtown Los Angeles. On the 46th floor, Cheryl Lynn Austin, 23, is found dead. Lieutenant Peter J. Smith, the Special Services Liaison for the Los Angeles Police Department, is assigned to the case, he is joined, on request, by retired Captain John Connor, who has lived in Japan and is well-acquainted with Japanese culture.
Upon arriving at Nakamoto Tower, the two policemen learn from officer-in-charge Tom Graham that the Japanese, led by Nakamoto employee Ishiguro, are stalling the investigation by demanding that the liaison be present. Although they have a valid pretense in that the virulently racist Graham is threatening to disrupt the celebration, it is obvious to Connor that a cover-up is underway; the detectives realize that the tapes from the security cameras on the 46th floor have mysteriously disappeared, the security guards are deliberately unhelpful. Smith and Connor visit the apartment of the late Ms. Austin, realizing that she was a mistress for the Japanese Yakuza, it seems. After several visits to friends and associates of Ms. Austin and Nakamoto, the two detectives find a suspect in Eddie Sakamura, a wealthy Japanese playboy from Kyoto. However, the two due to Eddie's previous associations with John Connor. Connor is still able to get Eddie to hand over his passport; the two officers are summoned to witness Ms. Austin's autopsy.
Afterwards and Connor are approached by Ishiguro, who now presents them with authentic videos from the security cameras, which show Sakamura to be the murderer. Having solved the mystery, Connor returns home to rest, while Smith and Graham go to apprehend Sakamura. Upon arriving at Eddie's house, the two detectives are stalled by two naked women while Eddie escapes in a Ferrari. After a high-speed chase, Eddie's car bursts into flames, killing him; the next day, the newspaper runs editorials criticizing Smith and Connor's actions as racist and accuses them of police brutality. Soon afterward, Smith receives a phone call from the Chief of Police, declaring the investigation over. Smith isn't satisfied, decides to take the tapes to the University of Southern California, in order to make copies. There, Smith meets Theresa Asakuma, a Japanese student, an expert on computers and software manipulation, she is able to point out that the tapes were indeed copies. After duplicating the tapes, Smith picks up Connor after his golf game with several Japanese friends.
On their way back to the USC labs, the two detectives are offered lucrative bribes from the Japanese, including a membership at an expensive golf club and low-priced real estate offers. They visit and consult with companies and industries involved with Nakamoto, in order to learn more about the killer's motives. Along the way, they realize that they are only pawns in a much larger political and economic "war" between America and Japan, how much the United States relies on Japan, which dominates the American electronics industry. Throughout the investigation, Connor educates Smith about the vast cultural differences between Japan and America, as well as the various underhanded business tactics Japan uses to maintain their technological edge over America, they meet with U. S. Senator John Morton, a potential presidential candidate in the upcoming elections, they learn that Morton fiercely opposes the Japanese purchase of MicroCon, a small Silicon Valley company that manufactures machinery. At USC, Smith and Theresa deduce that Eddie had been set up by the Japanese who had altered the tapes and inserted Eddie's image in them.
They undo the changes, discovering that Senator Morton was the real killer and Eddie had been a witness. Connor and Smith return to Smith's apartment; the trio confront Senator Morton, who confesses to his role in Cheryl Austin's death. The senator shoots himself in a bathroom. Soon afterward, an angry Ishiguro arrives to confront Eddie and the two detectives, making subtle threats to their lives. Strangely, Eddie reacts calmly, leading Connor to conclude afterward that Eddie still possesses an original copy of the tape from the security cameras. Smith and Connor travel to Eddie's home, where they find him tortured to death for the location of the stolen tape. Connor drops Smith off at his home. Upon entering his apartment, Smith realizes. Ishiguro's men arrive. Connor sneaks back to Smith's apartment; the two detectives engage in a gun battle with the thugs, Smith is s
