Rip it Up!: Rock 'n' Roll Mavericks by Denise Sullivan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Blending personal insight with recent firsthand interviews, this is a tribute to rock 'n' roll anarchists who ignited generations of musicians and fans. Whether defining a genre, smashing a musical or cultural myth, or inventing a playing style, these artists have kept rock 'n' roll's fire of rebellion burning. From vintage artists to bands of the new wave, next wave and beyond, the international rule-breakers featured here came first in their fields. Rip It Up! gets to the heart and soul of rock 'n' roll attitude - with Ike Turner, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, The Kinks, Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, Camper van Beethoven, Shonen Knife, Spiritualized, and many more.
