Living Through Pop
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1956 many people thought rock n' roll was a passing fad, yet over forty years later, pop music is more than ever, a part of contemporary culture, reinventing itself for successive generations. Popular music embraces its own history, with musicians from every genre routinely sampling the sounds of the past. Living Through Pop explores pop's history, and the ways in which it has been produced by musicians, broadcasters, critics and fans. In discussing this complex relationship between the past and the present, the contributors investigate signficant moments in music history, from the Rolling Stones and the Velvet Underground to the Sex Pistols and the Verve, from drum n' bass to European extreme techno, and from French rap culture to the Spice Girls.
