Ways of Hearing: A User’s Guide to the Pop Psyche, From Elvis to Eminem
Ben Thompson (au). Someone once said that ‘pop music is an argument anyone can join in’. This book turns that argument into a riotous bar-room brawl, as a frontier town of unruly pop pioneers (from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to Lemmy from Motorhead, from Captain Beefheart to The Chemical Brothers to Sir Cliff Richard) punch it out in a gleeful free-for-all. Part pop hall of fame, part self-help manual, & part visionary manifesto, the book cuts through the waxy build-up of conventional wisdom & gains direct access to the soul’s inner ear. Covering medium, method & message, Thompson meets the DJs who determine what we hear, then moves backwards to interview Eminem & Orbital on how they create. Captures the pop experience with a rare passion. Photos.
